New Getfugu CEO Rich Jenkins Reveals Submission of iPad Version of Next Generation Search Application

WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA--(Marketwire - May 17, 2010) - Getfugu (OTCBB: GFGU), the next generation mobile search tool, today announced that its unique "See It, Say It, Get It" technology has been submitted to Apple as an application for the iPad, which, when approved, will enable users to immediately locate, compare price, get directions to the nearest point of purchase, and buy the object or service they're looking for.

Getfugu's latest version includes many enhancements, including a new user-friendly interface, a choice of several search engines at source, improved voice recognition and a variety of new features utilizing augmented reality and GPS mapping. The application will be able to be accessed through the iTunes store and the Getfugu website, titled Getfugu 3GS.

Jenkins said, "The new code provides a level of functionality unrivalled on the market today. We have greatly improved all facets of the product and simultaneously introduced several new functions. We have introduced our own proprietary database, which has direct access to nearly 40,000 zip codes. This gives us the ability to promote and manage our keyword sales function without having to rely on external non-generic databases. Additionally, we have dramatically improved our voice recognition, image recognition and augmented reality functionality. This is the forefront of mobile search." 

Jenkins further adds, "In conjunction with this release we are launching a new user-friendly WAP site which will enable advertisers who do not have their own website to create their own customized promotional material. Retailers of any size will be able to create exactly what they want their customers to see, without the expenditure usually associated with conventional consumer advertising."

Carl Freer, Getfugu president, remarked of co-founder and now Chief Executive Officer, Rich Jenkins: "Rich's contributions to the rapid growth of our Company highlights the significant role he has played since our inception. His thorough knowledge of our technology, coupled with his astute business development abilities will see us through the current phase of producing revenue into a global position as the most novel and complete search application in the mobile universe."
