|Apple Places Tukaiz App PixyMe in Its “What’s Hot” Lineup|
PixyMe Gains Overwhelming Popularity in First Thirty Days on the Market
Franklin Park, IL, February 16, 2010 – Tukaiz, a leading provider of results-driven marketing communications services, rocked the social networking application category with its creation PixyMe™, introduced less than 30 days ago. In this short timeframe, PixyMe was chosen by Apple to be listed in Apple’s “What’s Hot” section; and also continues to rank in the top 25 of the “Top 100 Paid Social Networking Apps” in the App Store.
PixyMe’s popularity is due to the fact it is the first postcard messaging application of its kind that uses true-to-life image personalization technology to create and send personalized postcard via email, text message, Facebook or an actual printed postcard through the mail. Users are enjoying the ability to connect with family, friends, and other social networks with attention-getting images that actually integrate the name or short phrase into an object within the photograph, making it appear as if it were photographed that way, such as a name written in leaves on a sidewalk or as fireworks in the sky.
“PixyMe is a natural extension of the innovative marketing production services Tukaiz is known for,” said Frank Defino, Jr., vice-president and managing director of Tukaiz. “We recognize that as mobile phones are fast becoming the primary Internet device they offer an innovative way to drive interactive and print applications. We are confident that people’s fascination with the PixyMe app will pave the way for more innovation in this area and are thrilled to have reached such notable heights within our first month of launching the PixyMe application.”
