NEW YORK, March 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- LiveProfile, the blazing fast and free mobile messenger and social platform that helps friends stay connected in real time, today announced that it has reached the millionth user milestone. With the announcement of this milestone the company is launching its BlackBerry application, rounding out the company's trifecta of cross-platform smartphone messaging apps now available for all of the "big three" smartphone platforms.

"We've seen tremendous viral adoption of our Android and iPhone apps, adding 35,000-40,000 new users per day," said LiveProfile co-founder and CEO Phil Karl. "We expect this launch on the BlackBerry platform to double our growth very quickly. The more users using our service the more valuable it becomes for all."

LiveProfile finally unites users of Android, BlackBerry, and iPhone devices to provide a ubiquitous mobile messaging service that combines the ease and convenience of a real-time mobile messenger with profiles, pictures, videos, status updates and more.

According to comScore Inc.'s January report, BlackBerry maker RIM held more than 30 percent market share among smartphone platforms for US subscribers ages 13+. Google, RIM and Apple together command more than 86 percent of the market, with almost 70 percent of mobile subscribers using their devices to send text messages.

LiveProfile offers a cheaper, faster and more reliable alternative to text messaging allowing users to communicate with lightning-fast message delivery and confidence, indicating when messages are delivered, read, and even when the recipient is typing a response, making it feel closer to a live conversation. And, where text messaging charges can quickly rack up, LiveProfile is free—even for international use—making it easier on the wallet, too.

Karl says the rapid viral adoption of LiveProfile is a clear indication of the need for an unifying real-time smartphone messenger. The service has grown to more than 1,000,000 users in just 5 months, with 75 percent of all users logging in weekly. The service now transmits more than 3000 messages per minute.
