iHookup Social Rising Through Apple iPad and iTunes App Store Rankings

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 1, 2015) - iHookup Social, Inc. (OTC PINK: HKUP) (OTC PINK: HKUP), 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 the company's rankings for Apple's App Store and specifically the iPad platform has spiked in growth, while continuing to perform at a high level.

In the month of June 2015, the iHookup Social app reached a #28 ranking for iPad apps in the U.S., Social Networking category and out of more than 40,000 apps in this same category, reached a #63rd ranking for top grossing iPhone app among U.S. consumers as well. As of June 30, 2015, the company's app is now ranked in 95 app stores and countries around the world.

"As we continue adding fuel to the fire of our app's performance and feature set, our rankings are providing the organic growth we need to increase our status in the Apple App Store rankings, and specifically the iPad rankings as of late," stated Robert Rositano Jr., CEO, iHookup Social, Inc. "There are significantly more choices for a user on an iPad than are available on a mobile phone, so our popularity is a testament to our continued and growing appeal. Additionally, we believe this traction plays favorably to our recent announcement of expansion into the vast Android device market as well."

"Our race to expand our market share is in the footprints of app publishers successes like 'What's App,' which as most mobile and tech followers know was acquired by Facebook at a valuation of approximately $19Billion for the app, technology, staff and user base. The value disclosed by Facebook for user value alone was equal to $47 per FREE user," added Rositano. "Other social networking plays have had similar valuations including Tinder which was valued at over $450 per user, as noted by its successful financings in 2014."

"In our estimation, our rapid user acquisition is essential both in the growth and virility of our user experience but in also our relentless pursuit of a market valuation that will reward our loyal shareholders," stated Rositano Jr.

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.
