MEDL Launches Hang W/ - A Live Video Social Media Platform

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., March 20, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MEDL Mobile, Inc. (OTCBB:MEDL) – a pioneer in the creation, development, marketing and monetization of mobile apps – announced today that the patent-pending "Hang w/" live social mobile video platform has been approved for release by Apple and is available for download on the Apple App Store. The long awaited launch of this new app provides MEDL with an important new channel of advertising revenue.

"Hang w/" allows live real-time video to be sent from one phone to many. The goal of the platform is twofold: to become the premier social media network for people around the globe to connect, communicate and share experiences via live streaming broadcasts - and to enable celebrities and public figures to easily monetize their fan bases.

The platform is powerful yet extremely simple. Any user can be a broadcaster and/or a follower. After a follower receives a notification that the broadcaster is live, the follower views a short pre-roll advertisement before watching a live video feed sent directly from th e broadcaster's smartphone camera. The follower is able to chat with the broadcaster and other followers during the broadcast. A post-roll advertisement ends the broadcast.

Users will also be able to send messages directly from the app to Facebook and Twitter as events happen live on Hang w/ - using the power of social media to rapidly grow the platform's user base.

"Streaming live video is definitely the hot category in the social media space," said Andrew Maltin, CEO. "There's nothing quite like being able to watch someone live, comment on the action as it happens, get actual responses from the broadcaster and have a conversation with other viewers. And the fact that it's purely mobile means that Hang w/ is where today's users are - on their phones."

"We've watched as actors, dancers, musicians, models, sports stars, agents and all sorts of personalities have all taken to the platform and begun Hanging With each other," continued Maltin. "And we're thrilled that even more celebrities and millions of new users can now jump onboard."

The company recently filed a patent to protect the Hang w/ technology and associated intellectual property, entitled, "Apparatus and method of streaming media and data to multiple computing devices."

Hang w/ is now available on the Apple App Store: http://bit.ly/hangwapp
