WhosHere In Top Five Percent of iPhone Apps

San Mateo, CA - July 02, 2009 - According to metrics released by Admob, Inc., WhosHere is in the top 5% of all free apps that run across the Admob network. A little over 100 applications have more than 100,000 users a month in a review of over 2,300 free iPhone apps that run on the Admob network.

The Admob report states "5 percent of applications had more than 100,000 active users in May 2009"1 WhosHere uses Admob, among others, to provide ads to WhosHere users. Just under 90 percent of WhosHere users were presented Admob ads in May.

WhosHere has substantially more than 100,000 users per month. The extremely popular iPhone application is also in the top-20 of all Social Networking apps on Apple's iTunes App Store. And, last Thursday, WhosHere users sent a record 1.6 million text and image messages in a 24 hour period. WhosHere is used by people in over 150 countries.

According to Stephen Smith, co-founder and COO, "It is no surprise to find WhosHere in such elite company. By focusing on the iPhone and its native capabilities, WhosHere creates an extremely compelling user experience in that you can meet and chat with thousands of new people, post pictures, send pictures similar to MMS and have all the text messaging you want. Frankly, it is an experience that cannot be duplicated by SMS or Web-based applications."

WhosHere is a social proximity application that enables users to meet friends, potential dates or network through an exceptionally simple interface. WhosHere will show you matches that are near you or anywhere in the world based on your answers to a few questions about yourself and who you are interested in meeting. It takes the chance out of the chance encounter. When you find someone you want to talk with, you can send unlimited, free text and image messages to them; all within the WhosHere application

WhosHere runs on Apple's iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3G S and iPod touch and is available for free download on the iTunes App Store. Users of WhosHere can find online help at WhosHere.net/support.html and on YouTube (http://YouTube.com/WhosHerebyMyRete).
