CAMPBELL, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/14 -- iHookup Social, Inc. (OTCQB: TFERD), a mobile application positioned at the intersection of dating, social media and location based connections, is pleased to announce that the Company's paid version of its popular iHookup Social app has achieved for the first time, a Top 10 ranking in the Apple App Store (US) in the Social Networking category.

It should be noted, the iHookup Social app entered the Top 10 ranking for paid apps at the #9 position for the first time on May 10, 2014. Additionally, the Company's free app currently ranks higher than certain social media and online dating luminaries like eHarmony, Grindr and Keek.

"I am as excited by the context of our success in the App Store as I am by the ranking itself," stated Robert Rositano, CEO, iHookup Social. "While we are thrilled at the continued increase in our downloads and use of the app, to see our ascension displayed at times by rankings ahead of leading brands which have been at this a long, long time is most affirming."

"And while the rankings are not permanent and fluctuate daily, subject to many marketplace factors, it is clear we are earning traction," added Rositano. "We look forward to providing an updated user total and perhaps some user metrics that will give our investors a more granular view of our user acquisition strategies and our integrated strategy to deliver Social Commerce to Brands, Advertisers and Venues in the near future."
