CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - May 6, 2014) - iHookup Social, Inc. (OTCQB: TFERD), is pleased to announce it has achieved record gains in key iTunes / App Store media metrics for the month of April 2014.
Most notably, the Company registered 41,242 new downloads in April alone, a 264% increase over March and a total that surpasses the aggregate number of downloads for the preceding months of January, February, and March. iHookup Social's Free App was also selected as a Featured App in four different countries during the period. It should be noted that this status is granted on merit and cannot be purchased.
"Our most critical metric at this stage is always downloads," stated Robert Rositano, CEO, iHookup Social. "Downloads and users are not only a valuation metric in the mobile marketplace, it truly indicates the appeal of our app and the efficacy of our advertising as we continue rolling out our marketing campaigns."
"Our brand is positioned at the intersection of dating and social media, introducing the marketplace to 'Social Commerce' with location based 'Hookups.' Whether it's a 'Hookup' for lunch, drinks, a date or even an event, this becomes the catalyst of user engagement and where monetization begins. The apps performance in key demos within the iTunes and App Store community is a critical indicator of the traction and penetration we look for," added Rositano. "I applaud our technology, design and marketing teams, as well as our partners across the board for the exceptional results (below) that we enjoyed in April."
