iHookup Social Submits New App Release to Apple, Following Feature Advancement in Apple's iOS8 Platform

Release Includes 'App Preview Video' New From Apple

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 6, 2014) - iHookup Social, Inc. (OTCQB: HKUP), a mobile application positioned at the intersection of dating, social media and location-based connections, is pleased to announce that it has submitted a new version of the Company's popular app to Apple for approval and follow-on release.

The newest iHookup Social app is both advent and necessity as the feature set detailed below offers new opportunities for current and future users, as well as keeps pace with Apple's wildly popular new iPhone 6 and the prevailing iOS 8 operating system.

"We continue to advance the product and keep pace with Apple's latest releases," stated Robert Rositano, CEO, iHookup Social, Inc. "These advancements are necessary to maintain usability, as well as enhancing the user experience as Apple continues a rapid fire pace of upgraded operating systems. Each of these advancements, iOS8 compliant fixes and many features should contribute to the maintaining and attracting more users to our community. At the end of September, iHookup Social was in excess of 386,000 registered users."

"Additionally, we are most grateful for a significant opportunity recently granted by Apple, which now allows a video demo of our app (in the Apple App Store), which was previously limited to app screen shots and text only. The significance of having a video demo available to engage a user and promote an install of our app is a tremendous marketing advantage. This addition definitely increases our visibility and should ultimately increase our conversion rates," added Rositano.

According to leading app maker SourceBits, "Video previews are a visually striking and sensory-rich way to show users what your app is about and to convince them to download it. They also provide a great opportunity to demonstrate how to use your app."
