HENDERSON, Nev., June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Rarus Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: RARS) ("Rarus") announced today that it has moved quickly to incorporate improvements into its Zngle iPhone App and has submitted version 1.1 of the App to Apple. Additionally, Zngle has now broadened its range of potential clients by also joining the Android Marketplace. The two Smart Phone Giants control 90% of the US Smartphone Market according to CNET (http://news.cnet.com/8301-1023_3-57429192-93/android-reclaims-61-percent-of-all-u.s-smartphone-sales).
Zngle released its first iPhone App on June 1, 2012 in the Apple iTunes Store and has now submitted version 1.1 with added features and improvements. Zngle has been very diligent in getting member feedback and is already developing version 1.2 with more new and improved features. The Android App will have the same functionality and UI design as Zngle's iPhone version 1.2 and is expected to be available in the Android Marketplace in 2 to 3 weeks.
"We are excited to explore the new opportunities presented in developing and distributing of our platform in the Android Market Place. Our technology and applications were built with the intention of being offered on multiple platforms and our new relationship with the Android Market Place and member feedback makes us confident we can capitalize on the millions of Android users out there," commented Manfred Ruf, CEO of Rarus. Ruf added, "Today we also successfully closed a private placement which raised US$500,000 through the sale of 5,000,000 restricted common shares at $0.10 per share to qualified, non-related investors. This private placement will help us further develop and market Zngle.com and its new mobile phone apps. We're very pleased with the market acceptance of the Zngle.com business concept, as evidenced by the success of this major private placement. Funds raised will be used for installment payments for our Zngle license and marketing initiatives which we believe will speed our launch into the dynamic and fast-growing market for mobile phone apps."
