Academy Award(C) Winner Marlee Matlin and MEDL Mobile Update Top-Downloaded ASL Educational App

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Aug. 26, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MEDL Mobile, Inc. (OTCQB:MEDL) – a pioneer in the creation, development, marketing and monetization of mobile apps – and Academy Award©-winning deaf actress, Marlee Matlin – announced today the release of a new feature-packed update for the "Marlee Signs" American Sign Language app.

"Marlee Signs" teaches American Sign Language fundamentals using video lessons by Marlee Matlin herself. To date, more than 150,000 users have downloaded the app. The user base is not only active on the app, but has been reaching out to Marlee and to MEDL on Twitter and other social media with requests for feature enhancements.

"It's deeply rewarding to see many people learning Sign Language with my app," stated Marlee. "I've always been dedicated to helping others learn ASL, so when the fans ask for updates, I'm happy use that feedback to make their learning experience even better."

The latest update brings the ability to loop lesson videos, enlarge them, and flip them for left-handed learners. Users can now enjoy the app on both the iPhone and the iPad. And the biggest update is the ability to create "Sign Language e-Cards" that can be shared via Facebook and Twitter.

"Users have been asking for a way to teach ASL to their friends," said Dave Swartz, Co-Founder and CCO. "And the e-Cards use social media to let them share the words and phrases they've learned so their friends can also learn and join them." Swartz continued, "We've seen from other MEDL apps that as much as ten percent of an app's posts to Facebook will spur an additional download of the application. A lot of sharing means a lot of new users."

Other features of the app include the ability type any word to watch Marlee sign it back, and the option to break down lessons to their individual videos for learning at your own pace. The app comes with one free lesson pack in the App Store, with five additional lessons available at $3.99 each.
