FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Nov. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MEDL Mobile, Inc. (OTCBB:MEDL) – a custom developer and incubator of mobile applications – announced today that total reach of the Hang w/ platform via Twitter has exceeded 900,000,000 and is on track to quickly pass 1,000,000,000. The platform expects to pass the 1 billion mark as early as December 1, 2013.
The "Hang w/" app connects people through live streaming video and simultaneous chat - allowing thousands of users to simultaneously "Hang with" their favorite people in real time.
Twitter functionality has been deeply integrated into the application using the Twitter API. Users of the Hang w/ app can automatically invite their Twitter followers to the application at the time of broadcast. A link is posted to the user's Twitter stream - which takes followers directly to either the iTunes Store or the Android Marketplace depending upon the device of the user who clicks the link.
"It's always been part of our growth strategy to work with talent who themselves have massive Twitter followings," said Andrew Maltin, MEDL Mobile CEO. "Hang With users like 50 Cent, Timbaland, Kaskade and Terrell Owens are able to reach millions of potential users with each tweet."
"Many of our broadcasters are successfully using Twitter to pre-promote their activity on Hang With," said Dave Swartz, MEDL President and Chief Creative Officer. "For instance, 50 Cent tweeted to his fans that he'd be sharing new music for the first time that night - which drove a spike in new users and created the most attended live Hang With broadcast to that date."
"We will continue to bring more Twitter super users to Hang With," added Maltin. "And we'll keep adding new functionality to make it easier for all of our users to share their Hang With content on Twitter and other social media such as Facebook and Instagram."
The Hang w/ platform has attracted musicians, athletes and celebrity broadcasters since launch, having signed up more than 80 celebrities and athletes including 50 Cent, Timbaland, Kaskade, Lucy Hale, Ali Landry, Paula Abdul, Shaun T, Terrell Owens, Cheech and Chong, Jessica Sanchez and Jamie Kennedy.
