PITOOEY! App Launches on Android Market

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Mar 6, 2014) - PITOOEY!™ Inc. (OTCBB: PTOO) (OTCQB: PTOO) announced today that the PITOOEY! app launched on the Android Marketplace on Tuesday, March 4, 2014. 

For consumers, the PITOOEY! app was created so individuals can easily interact with the businesses they frequent most, or might be interested in frequenting in the future. By downloading the PITOOEY! app to a phone, an individual can search for businesses in their area that has products and services in which they are interested; and they add them to a "list." By building this list, the businesses can then send the user updates and specials.

For business owners, the app means establishing a direct communication with individuals who are interested in their products or services. A message a consumer might receive from a business could be in the form of information (i.e., a particular band playing at a local restaurant), offers (i.e., 10% off a purchase of $50 or more), or interactive messaging (i.e., job posting).

In other words, the PITOOEY! app creates a clear marketing channel for businesses and an extremely efficient purchasing channel for consumers.

"According to various research firms, four-out-of- every- five smartphones sold worldwide now are running Android," commented Jacob DiMartino, CEO of PITOOEY! 

"By offering the PITOOEY! app to Android users, we are expanding the power of communication between consumers and the businesses they want to hear from in the most innovative and personalized way, ever," said DiMartino. 

Android is the world's most popular mobile OS powering more than a billion phones and tablets around the world. Recently, The IDC report said that Android and iOS together accounted for 95.7 percent of all smartphone shipments in the fourth quarter of 2013, up 4.5 percentage points from the 91.2 percent share during the same period a year ago. In 2013, both platforms powered 93.8 percent of all smartphones shipped, a 6.1 percentage-point increase from the 87.7 percent share they had in 2012.
