MeetMe, Inc. (NYSE MKT: MEET), the public market leader for social discovery, announced today that its mobile app, Charm, is now ranked the number 41 app in the Social category of the Google Play Store. Charm, a video-based app for meeting new people that has been described as “
where Tinder meets Vine,” was launched in the fourth quarter of last year as part of MeetMe’s
standalone app strategy.
“We have now begun to promote Charm on Android to our MeetMe user base,” said Geoff Cook, CEO of MeetMe. “We are excited to see the cross-promotional power of MeetMe in driving multiple Android apps into the Top 50 Social rankings in just the last two weeks. Even before the Android cross-promotion began, Charm users had made over 100,000 matches and sent more than 700,000 messages. Android is the more popular platform on MeetMe, so we expect this week's cross-promotion to drive significant activity to Charm.”
Charm, as well as MeetMe’s new people discovery app
Choosy, has been permanently integrated into the main menu of the Android MeetMe app, which the company believes helps to drive MeetMe’s nearly 800,000 daily mobile users and all new users to these standalone apps.
Charm is available for download
in the iTunes Store and
in the Google Play Store. Rankings in the Social category can be monitored on services such as
