iHookup Social Hits #2 Paid App on Australian App Charts, Top 200 Overall

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2015) - iHookup Social, Inc. (OTC PINK: HKUP) (OTC PINK: HKUPD), a fully reporting public company that develops and markets a mobile/social app positioned at the intersection of social media and location based connections is pleased to report that on April 12, 2015 the paid version of its app rose to #2 in Australia and is now in the Top 200 overall for apps in that country. The "paid" version of the app provides users with immediate and full access to all iHookup Social subscription services for .99 cents, limited to a twenty-four hour period before upgrade.

The ranking represents the highest recorded rank ever in Australia for iHookup Social. Notably, the ascension was entirely due to organic traffic generation, meaning that the users (that drive the ranking) did not derive from paid ads by the Company.

"Our success in Australia, a market most similar to our primary audience in the United States, is a very strong indicator of what we hope lays ahead for iHookup Social in this country," stated Robert Rositano, Jr. CEO. "This rise says a lot about our design and tech teams, as it is due to viral awareness, users finding our app in the App Store or simply telling other users about their experience."

"This makes our transition to 'iHookup 2.0' and our strategy to release the app's brand new identity ever so critical to propelling us further forward," added Rositano. "We are chasing this tipping point in the U.S., doing everything we can to expedite the arrival of its appearance on our corporate timeline with the most compelling app and brand we've ever released."

About iHookup Social:

iHookup Social is a mobile - social app positioned at the intersection of location based connections, love and adventure, stimulating hyper - local opportunities for our user community as well as the venues and merchants competing for their business.

The company seeks to redefine the way people connect, find love or embark on an adventure. iHookup Social is where real people make real connections and businesses pay to be their host. The by-product of our business model inherently produces "hyper-local" advertising opportunities for the company, driving customers to local venues and / or businesses. The laws of attraction or making a new connection have shifted, with the traditional meaning of "being social" or "meeting up", now taking a backseat to meeting online or through a mobile device and apps.

Making connections through online or mobile devices has become a dominant part of today's mobile-social lifestyle, across various social circles, age groups, race, gender and demographics. iHookup Social takes the virtual connection and moves it toward a real-life interaction, facilitating connections and offering-up locally relevant hot spots and locations to meet up with these new connections, allowing iHookup Social to become both matchmaker and concierge. This combination provides a unique opportunity for consumer brands to offer incentives to a growing network of socially active mobile users on a hyper-local basis.
