Tagged Makes Major Mobile Moves With New Mobile WebsiteEnhanced iPhone and Android Apps; Mobile Usage Jumps Over 700% (April 13, 2011)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/13/11 -- Tagged, the leading social network for meeting new people, today unveiled their mobile website and significant enhancements to both their Android and iPhone apps. As the company rolls out offerings for almost any mobile device, Tagged has also revealed that mobile usage has skyrocketed over 700% since December, already accounting for more than 10% of Tagged's overall daily active users.
Tagged serves over 100 million registered members in 220 countries around the world. In late 2010 the company embarked on a significant plan to better serve their members on-the-go. Those strategic efforts were validated today as Tagged revealed a staggering 700% growth in mobile usage since December. The company further extended its mobile efforts with the triple-header announcement of newly enhanced iPhone and Android Apps and the Tagged mobile website. Together Tagged now enables almost any mobile device, from iPhone to Android, Nokia to Blackberry, to conveniently access Tagged's core functionality from just about anywhere.
"Mobile is a major priority for us," said Tagged's CEO Greg Tseng. "Seeing the rapid growth in our mobile traffic, even before launching our new mobile site, it's clear that members are craving robust mobile offerings to meet and interact with new people. We are ready for a future where many members access Tagged first and possibly exclusively through mobile. Today's news is still just the beginning of our mobile story."
Tagged's New Mobile website enables members to access:
- Browse -- Find new and interesting people
- Friends -- Connect with your existing friends
- Messages -- Start conversations with new and existing connections
- Profile -- View personal profile
- MeetMe -- Play Tagged's most popular dating match game
While the first versions of Tagged's mobile website allows users of most mobile handsets to access core features on the go, the concurrent release of Tagged's Android App 2.0 and iPhone App 5.1 represents significant milestones for users of Apple and Android handsets. With this release, Android users can now enjoy the same full-feature set as iPhone users, including the ability to play Pets, the popular member trading game and to buy Tagged Gold from their device. Other enhancements include improved interfaces as well as added privacy settings.
Tagged's Android App is available now in the Android Marketplace. Tagged's iPhone App 5.1 is available in the App Store. The company's mobile website can be visited by going to m.tagged.com
