London, Nov 17, 2008 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) --
Trutap, the popular mobile social network, today announced the roll-out of it's next generation application. In addition to a stylish new design, the new version gives users live updates from all their friends, wherever they are, providing a compelling mobile social networking experience.

The new application, which anyone can download for free, blends intuitive design with a range of interactive features that make finding and keeping in touch with friends really easy. Key features include: a personal newsfeed, 'who's online', status & location, extended profile, searchable user directory, private messaging, email, SMS, blogging, photo-sharing and mobile IM.

Trutap recently announced that it is partnering with leading content providers to deliver daily news and entertainment to its user base. Coupled with the fact that Trutap now offers the most comprehensive range of IM services available on mobile, the company aims to set the standard for mobile social networks.

Trutap is targeted at mid-to-high-range mobile phones that make up 85% of the market. It has a high penetration in countries, such as India and Indonesia, where the iPhone and Blackberry are still considered luxury handsets. The new version will be rolled out to over 450 mobile phones by the end of 2008 and many more early in 2009.

Doug Richard, Trutap CEO, said:"The new version of Trutap raises the bar for mobile social networking. We're giving users a real-time updates from their friends, wherever they are and we're doing it in an application that's fast and visually stunning. We're aiming to provide our users with one of the best user experiences on a mobile social network and for many of our users who can't afford fancy phones, this new version gives them everything they need. I like to call it 'the iPhone for everyone else'".
