LONDON, Oct. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TagLikeMe Corp. ("TagLikeMe" or "the Company") (OTCQB:TAGG, Frankfurt M6C1; WKN A1JZ03) has commenced development of the mobile Windows Surface 8 Tablet App of its social search and sharing platform TagLikeMe.com.
TagLikeMe.com is a new, shared social information network that allows individuals or groups to search, tag (or bookmark) and share all forms of digital content privately or publicly using cloud based technology. Its next-generation search and share technology has powerful features for collaborating search and sharing all online digital content from a single location. TagLikeMe versions are scheduled for release for all major mobile platforms in 2012.
Microsoft announced the introduction of its new Surface Tablet mobile computing device in April 2012. The company expects to release the units to the public in tandem with the introduction of Windows 8 scheduled for October 26, 2012. According to Microsoft, the Surface Tablet will operate on the new Windows 8 operating system.
"Our Windows Surface mobile app development is underway," states Richard Elliot-Square, President and CEO of TagLikeMe Corp. "Since TagLikeMe is very useful for business and professional research, it makes sense for us to pursue the app for Microsoft's new Surface 8 tablet device. It is being widely marketed to businesses and professionals who want to use the Microsoft Office suite of tools and we see TagLikeMe as a logical extension. We will embrace the Windows 8 platform and make use of its features. It could be a significant market for our evolving app platform."
Information provided by Microsoft and comScore Tech Metrix suggest that there are between 750 million and one billion users of Microsoft's Office product. That figure does not account for pirated, trial or unlicensed version of the software. The office and business division generated $6.28 billion in the first quarter of 2012, making it one of Microsoft's largest revenue streams.
Management expects to launch the new Windows 8 Surface Tablet App mobile version of TagLikeMe in Q4 2012. Microsoft has not yet approved this application for sale through its store or system.
