New Tagged Mobile Apps Introduce Localized Chat and Meet-Up

Mobile-Only Features on Android and iPhone Encourage Deeper on-the-go Interactions

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 5, 2011) - Tagged, the leading social network for meeting new people, today unveiled major updates to its free iOS and Android applications that enable its over one hundred million members to chat in real-time and meet-up with other local members.

With the recent introduction of mobile applications across most major platforms, Tagged has taken the next step on its product road map. With today's releases, the company has launched its first "mobile-only" features and introduced location-based, real-time chat across both Android and iOS devices (iPhone and iPod touch).

Enjoying skyrocketing adoption of its mobile applications, Tagged has experienced growth in mobile usage from 2 percent of its daily active users in December 2010 to over 20 percent as of July.

"We approached 2011 with the goal of making Tagged easily accessible by every mobile device," said Tagged's CEO Greg Tseng. "Now we are taking the next step in delivering Tagged to everyone, everywhere and creating mobile-only features that will increasingly take advantage of all that mobile has to offer."

New features for the new iOS and Android Apps:

  • Location-based, real-time Chat. People can search for other nearby Tagged users in real time and chat
  • Redesigned user profile presentation for best mobile viewing
  • Added grid view for friends

Since early-2010 Tagged has introduced mobile applications for iOS, Android and Blackberry devices. To ensure complete coverage of the mobile ecosystem and convenient access to Tagged across any device with an HTML browser the company has also created a Mobile Web version of Tagged.com.
