NEW YORK, NEW YORK and SAN MATEO, CALIFORNIA and TORONTO, CANADA--(Marketwire - April 13, 2011) - Intertainment Media Inc. ("Intertainment" or the "Company")(TSX VENTURE:INT)(OTCBB:ITMTF)(FRANKFURT:I4T) announces that its most recent desktop app KNCTR® (pronounced "Connector") – www.knctr.com a key program of Intertainment's wholly owned division itiBiti (www.itibiti.com) has its biggest week over week of unique installations bringing the total amount of unique users in North America to over 175,000 in only its third week.
With over 75,000 new unique users this week, a new high mark for week over week growth has been set and active users are continuing to spend an average of over 13 minutes per day on the application watching video, interacting with their social medias and making FREE phone calls on the advertising supported platform.
KNCTR® is the next generation of social communications applications that allows users to aggregate their social media(s) and voice services into one location on their desktop. Unlike Skype, the telephone feature on KNCTR® is completely free to the consumer allowing FREE local and long distance calls to mobile phones and land lines. KNCTR® is a premium advertising model that allows for branded sponsorship, pre-roll and display advertising opportunities for brands and service providers alike.
With the projected impact that tablets will have on the personal computing space, with over 50 million units to be sold within the next two years in North America alone, KNCTR® is positioned to enhance the functionality and usability of these devices by allowing them to become a fully functioning phone unit.
"We are seeing a really great story here with KNCTR®, its week over week growth pattern continues to exceed expectations." said Brad Parry, CMO Intertainment Media Inc., "We're thrilled with the continued level of engagement that the application is delivering to our audiences."
