With New Events Features, Blupe Announces First Android and Updated iOS Apps to Connect Local People and Communities Through Shared Interests

Blupe iOS 1.2 Launches in App Store With Event Capabilities; Blupe Android 1.0 Available Later in April

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 9, 2015) - Blupe, the company that is dramatically improving the way people make friends, today launched Blupe 1.2 on iOS, with Blupe 1.0 on Android launching later this month. Both apps include Blupe Event capabilities. Event functionality enables anyone to discover nearby events, share with their groups and then attend events together.

The unique Events feature is one more way Blupe bridges the gap between online and offline life, and helps instantly connect anyone with new friends in their local community. Events also expands on Blupe's central message of bringing people together, as it inspires groups to build upon the connections they make within the app by planning, creating, and joining events. Coupled with Blupe's instant connective capabilities, Events allows users to create an event, or a hundred events, no matter the circumstance: whether planning in advance for a trip to a music festival or ongoing half-marathon training, or just a last minute happy hour this afternoon. Easy, fast, and all on your clock.

"By bringing Blupe to Android and adding Events, we are greatly enhancing our users' ability to connect," said Sic Zhang, Blupe CEO and Founder. "Along with the expanded base of Android owners, Event features further encourage our users to go out, have fun and socialize with like minded people near them."

Whether you like comic books or sci-fi, ballroom dancing or politics, reading mysteries or cooking, Blupe offers anyone a genuine connection to local people and communities who have the same passions and interests. In a casual and comfortable setting, Blupe allows users to explore and discover new things, events and people, and then engage with what they love to do.

Blupe was developed by a team of experienced social discovery experts, who have helped bring hundreds of millions of people together on Momo, one of China's leading mobile social networking platforms.

Blupe is available today for free download in the Apple App store and available later in April in the Google Play Store.
