(OTCQB:QUNI), today announced the release of an update to its iOS application, as work on the roadmap to EXLEY 2.0 continues. The new release includes a news flash feature, which is engineered to offer push notifications for breaking stories, as well as performance enhancements, with improved speed that will be most noticeable to frequent "power users."
"We are always seeking ways to improve the user experience and our team is excited to make these improvements available ahead of our 2.0 release, which is expected to include additional features designed to transform the way consumers engage with online content," said Tino Dietrich, CEO of EXLEY Media. "EXLEY's latest statistics reveal that we are engaging tens of thousands of users with our celebrity content curation and social media marketing. I believe many are becoming quickly addicted to EXLEY's content and envision a continual migration from more traditional lifestyle and entertainment portals."
