FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., May 6, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MEDL Mobile, Inc. (OTCBB:MEDL) – a pioneer in the creation, development, marketing and monetization of mobile apps – announced today that famed music producer, Timbaland, has made a financial investment in HangWith, Inc.
The "Hang w/" app has already reached the top 30 on Apple's App Store with more than 100,000 downloads and 2,000,000 user sessions since launching in March. It enables live, real-time video to be sent from one phone to many. Anyone with an iPhone - and soon Android - device can connect instantly to hundreds, thousands, even millions of fans via 3-minute live-streaming video broadcasts.
Timbaland's impressive body of work has been recognized across the music industry, having won the People's Choice Awards, BET Hip Hop Awards, multiple Teen Choice Awards and multiple Grammy Awards - where he has been nominated more than a dozen times. The Super Producer's artistic collaborators include Jay Z, Justin Timberlake, Beyonce, Nelly Furtado, Snoop Dogg, Madonna and Missy Elliott. He plans to use the live-streaming platform to bring fans behind the scenes and into the music world.
"I've seen the power of social media and how a simple tweet or Instagram pic can bring awareness to an album," said Timbaland. "I think Hang With takes things to the next level. I believe the entertainment industry will line up behind this application and I intend to be at the head of the line."
Hang w/ looks to be a perfect fit for the Super Producer whose work is at the top of popular culture and social media. His most recent track with Jay Z, Open Letter, reached 1,000,000 listens in less than a week. His work with Justin Timberlake, The 2020 Experience, is the fastest-selling album worldwide in iTunes history.
"Timbaland brings real star power to a platform custom built for celebrity," said Andrew Maltin, MEDL Mobile CEO. "This relationship will open up new doors for Hang With - and for our users."
"Timbaland lives in a world that very few people will ever glimpse," said Dave Swartz, MEDL Mobile President. "He's the perfect partner to showcase the power of this new social media - and this is just the beginning."
Hang w/ is now available on the Apple App Store. www.hangwith.me/tmbpr
