Mobile Couple App Between Hits 5 Million Downloads, Releases Version 2.0 As Part Of Global Expansion Strategy
South Korea, 20 December 2013 – Leading mobile couple application, Between, today announced that it has crossed the 5 million global downloads milestone. This announcement comes together with the launch of Between 2.0, the first major update since its official release in March 2012, as the company continues its push into the global market.
South Korea is currently Between’s strongest market, with 60% of downloads coming from the country. Japan and China both hold 10% of Between’s global downloads while Southeast Asia and the US hold 7% and 5% respectively.
Weather Update – Be it a married couple living together or a couple going through a long-distance relationship, Between’s new weather update feature will bring couples closer together when they are physically apart by helping them understand the weather they are experiencing respectively.
More Visual User Interface – Between 2.0 employs a highly visual user interface design that is more appealing to users. Couples will be able to enjoy and recall more of their favourite memories better as there is greater emphasis on photos and how they are displayed and organised.
“The new features in Between 2.0 will continue to help couples communicate better with each other, especially with all the digital noise around. Together with the new update, Between has also undergone a rebranding, with its new app icon and logo, to position it better for the global audience,” said Park.
