Getfugu Introduces New Mobile Ticketing Feature for Consumers to Attend Concerts, Sporting or Theatre Events(March 05, 2010)
WEST HOLLYWOOD, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/05/10 -- Getfugu, Inc. (http://www.getfugu.com/) (OTCBB: GFGU), the next generation mobile search tool, announced today that the Company has added a new feature for its popular mobile search tool called "Get Tickets."
Getfugu users can search and purchase tickets directly on their mobile phone by simply saying the name of the event into their phone. For example, a user could ask for events like Lakers (by saying "Lakers Tickets") or concerts (by saying "Bon Jovi tickets"). Getfugu's Get Tickets application will provide dates, times, specify the venue and even tell the consumer how many tickets are available for purchase.
"This is the first in a long line of new services we are bringing to Getfugu. The objective is to put information about these events in the hands of the consumer and give them a chance to attend," said Rich Jenkins, Getfugu co-founder and business development executive. "Currently purchasing a ticket on a mobile phone is a painful process. First, a user would need to perform a Google search for a website for the venue and search for event or calendar for a schedule. Then after finding the number for the box office, call and inquire about available tickets. Who would want to pursue such a laborious process?"
Getfugu is already available on several major platforms, including iPhone, BlackBerry, J2ME and Android. Getfugu is a revolutionary new mobile search tool that is designed to work agnostically on the majority of the world's leading phone platforms. The key consumer services: 'See It,' 'Say It' and 'Get It' integrate the phones' core technologies into a single easy-to-use tool. Consumers simply point their phone's camera at a logo (or photo) or speak the brand into the microphone to reach content.
The Getfugu application is available for free download at http://www.getfugu.com.
Getfugu, Inc.'s revolutionary "See It, Say It, Get It" technology is the first carrier agnostic, platform agnostic mobile search platform. Getfugu will change the way people access the web with their mobile phones. It is designed to facilitate and encourage users by integrating the mobile phone's core strengths -- image, voice and location recognition -- into a single customizable application. Additionally, Getfugu offers the only mobile ecommerce platform available worldwide today. The Getfugu platform will soon be available for 97% of the mobile phones available (over 3.3 billion handsets) worldwide.
