TagLikeMe To Be Available On Three Major Mobile Platforms By End Of Q4 Reaching A Potential 1.6 Billion Smartphone/Tablet Users Worldwide
LONDON, Oct. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TagLikeMe Corp. ("TagLikeMe" or "the Company") (OTCQB:TAGG), a social media development company, says the company has planned the release of its mobile apps for three of the major mobile platforms by Q4 2012.
The release of the new apps will incorporate all of the major functions of TagLikeMe's social search and share online capabilities in a sleek, new, compact and highly efficient social mobile interface with the potential to reach an enormous audience across all of the major platforms including iOS, Android, and Windows 8 systems.
Richard Elliot-Square, President of TagLikeMe Corp. states, "Our release of apps for the entire slate of mobile platforms in Q4 is a major step towards putting TagLikeMe on every device and in the hands of virtually anyone who wants to search and share with a social interest. According to current market data, there are over 1.6 billion mobile users who are accessing information at an incredible rate. We want to engage that audience and rapidly become the most useful and used app across all platforms."
The importance of the new mobile apps cannot be understated. The iPhone has now sold over 210 million units since the original iPhone launched in 2007, as well as 25 million iPads in just 14 months. Additionally, Android devices have taken over a large share of the market with over 300 million Android devices now in use throughout the world, as well as 12 million tablets, giving it a top spot on tablet devices as well.
Planned introductions for the TagLikeMe mobile apps include major enhancements that are most useful for TagLikeMe.com users. These include the ability to better manage tags (or bookmarks) and place them into projects; the ability to place projects into folders; more user controlled settings for search and tagging, and the ability to operate seamlessly between the iPad and a local desktop or notebook continuing on the same TagLikeMe projects.
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.
Google's Android platform is designed primarily for smartphones and tablets, however the open and customizable nature of the operating system allows it to be used on other electronics, including laptops and netbooks, smartbooks, ebook readers, and smart TVs (Google TV). It is considered the fastest growing mobile platform in the world used by more than 300 million devices.
TagLikeMe Corp. expects to roll-out individual versions of TagLikeMe for mobile platforms over the next 90 days, kicking off with the first introduction on the Apple's iOS platform followed by the Google Android and Windows 8 after its introduction.
