MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 06/30/14 -- Apptigo International, Inc. (OTCBB: APPG) (OTCQB: APPG), a non-conforming, highly creative agency and mobile app developer, today announced that the Company's highly anticipated new mobile, interactive dating app, SCORE, is now available worldwide for free download from the Apple® App Store.
The first mobile app in Apptigo's fast expanding app-in-development portfolio, SCORE is the ultimate interactive dating game that allows people to determine their compatibility through answering entertaining and engaging questions. Whether seeking instant gratification or eager anticipation plays, players can choose to invite anyone to play by:
- entering a queue that shows other active players who want to "SCORE" in their area, and they can send invites or be invited through the queue;
- using the interactive map that shows pins of all the people who are available to play in a specific geographic region (ideal for connecting singles at a bar, restaurant, event or party); and
- inviting friends through email, phone number or social media contact lists.
SCORE launches with over 800 questions to start, in 16 different categories. From "True or False" to "Have You Ever...," the categories span all areas of interest while keeping it highly entertaining. Once a play is fully completed, users generate a percentage-based SCORE derived from how many questions they answered the same way. Moments after receiving this SCORE and a witty response tied to what the percentage was, users are treated to a five second viewing of the other's profile picture, which then fades to a screen giving them options to Chat, SCORE Again, Save the SCORE or Quit. SCORE players may also elect to materially enhance their gaming experience through a number of in-app upgrades available.
Casey Cordes, Apptigo Co-Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "After nearly a year in development, SCORE offers singles a totally unique and highly entertaining online dating experience unlike any other. We are thrilled to be moving Apptigo from a development stage company to a revenue generating enterprise with the release of SCORE, and in the near future, look forward to introducing a number of new cutting edge mobile apps that dare to challenge the status quo."
As more people meet online and through dating apps, they are also obliterating the stigma once associated with it. In a study conducted by the Pew Research Internet Project, researchers found that one in ten Americans have used an online dating site or mobile dating app themselves; and many people now know someone else who uses online dating or who has found a spouse or long-term partner via online dating. Moreover, 7% of Smartphone apps users (representing 3% of all adults) say they have used a dating app on their mobile phone.
SCORE has been designed exclusively for use on smart mobile devices and for the multitudes of hyper-social people who wield them. The app is currently available for free download in the Apple App Store and will be available for Android users in the near future. To download SCORE now, simply go to: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/score-match-maker/id667799278?mt=8.

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today.
