Flirtomatic, one of the most popular social mobile services used by young adults, enables a whole new audience to enjoy the power of mobile flirting with today’s launch of its free Android application available at the Android Marketplace. The Android debut coincides with Flirtomatic’s next stage of Facebook integration, which introduces the “Like” buttons on user profiles.
Since Flirtomatic launched its iPhone and iPod Touch app in January this year, the handset has become the largest single source of inflow of new users. Now, the launch of the Android application will allow a new set of users to take all of 20 seconds to set up a profile and start flirting, chatting and having fun online. Along with the Android release, Flirtomatic this summer will also be available as a Blackberry application and at the Ovi Store.
Flirtomatic has also integrated a “Like” button into profiles across the web service, allowing its 2 million users to “Like” their favorite profiles and publish them on their Facebook profile. Flirtomatic is already integrated with Facebook Connect.
“Over the last two years, people have become increasingly familiar with mobile applications and we’re seeing rapidly rising volumes of users coming through app stores,” said Mark Curtis, CEO of Flirtomatic. “With this in mind, it makes sense for Flirtomatic to be as widely available as possible. By launching applications across the different major platforms, along with being available on the web, we’re doing just that.”
