SXSW's Interactive Festival Proves Successful for eDoorways

Closing Out the Interactive Festival With a Jam Packed Happening Party, Web-Based Software Technology Company eDoorways Celebrates the Journey From Beta Version 1.0 to This Week's Release of v2.5, iPhone® Apps and More

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - March 16, 2010) -  The eDoorways Corporation (PINKSHEETS: EDWY) has successfully presented at the South By Southwest (SXSW) Interactive Festival. Whether it's the swanky display booth, surprise demonstration of the company's iPhone® application, eSee Technologies' heAR App, a couple of hundred new site registrants or the sneak peek releases of v2.5, the Austin web-based software technology company has much to celebrate.

Mr. Gary Kimmons, Chairman & CEO of the eDoorways Corporation, stated, "We knew that showing at South By Southwest would be a great experience for the company. A few of the biggest names in the technology space have enjoyed greater worldwide success after presenting at the Interactive Festival. We were well received by the public, capital sources and the biggest of the big guys in technology. I firmly believe that eDoorways is moving in the right direction and will soon prove its true value to our real supporters."

With the Interactive portion of the SXSW event coming to a close, the company gets the day off as the Music and Media portion of the event is set to start Wednesday. This gives eDoorways the opportunity to showcase its platform yet again, to a different but very innovative group of social media enthusiasts.

"We can't wait to get back to the booth come Wednesday," stated Ann Collins, eDoorways Social Media Consultant and Solve Project Manager. "We have a lot to show as our iPhone® application has been a hit amongst attendees and our sneak peek releases of v2.5 have really helped users, old and new, to get even more excited about the platform's potential -- and the power they will possess when using the platform."

eDoorways decided to release its Beta v2.5 in smaller pieces over the course of SXSW in order to clearly show the added functionality of this version. The v2.5 sneak peek began with the addition of saved chats and conversation histories. Over the next few days the company will release its Facebook integration which will allow Facebook users to sign up and login to eDoorways using a single click. Profile information will pre-populate relevant fields with information from their Facebook account. Once logged in, eDoorways users will have the ability to invite their Facebook friends to eDoorways and see mutual acquaintances of the people they interact with, on eDoorways.

"The Facebook integration is an innovative way to not only invite more social networking savvy users into eDoorways, but to demonstrate the future capabilities and direction of our platform," stated Ann Collins. "Think of it as social media with no bounderies... 'doorways' allowing fluid communication across various people networks. The possibilities could be endless."

People close to the company indicate that other functionality to be released this week in the v2.5 seek peek include basic media exchange and text message notification.

The company closed out the Interactive Festival with a social event worthy of the SXSW and Austin entertainment heritage. Produced by Brand Ur Band (B.U.B.) and co-sponsored by SoNu Beverages, the party which packed a The Parish venue, offered a roster of exciting performances from several popular bands including L.A.X and Eyes Burn Electric.
