Social Networking App Integrates Skyhook for Improved Location

BOSTON, MA - September 17, 2009 - Skyhook Wireless®, provider of the patented Wi-Fi Positioning System (WPS) and the hybrid positioning system XPS, today announced a partnership with mmatcher, a social networking service available today in the Android Market.

mmatcher connects people with the same interests, buyers with sellers, and people who need services with people who offer services. For example, mmatcher can hook up two people who want to play tennis, business people attendingconferences on similar topics, or someone repairing appliances with people who need this service.  mmatcher will use Skyhook to determine precise user location, allowing users to better connect with people in their neighborhoods.

"The purpose of mmatcher is to match up people nearby who have common interests," said Robert Farazin, developer of mmatcher.  "By including Skyhook technology, we can ensure that our users get the most accurate location and the best use out of the Android app, developed by Tridens."

"mmatcher connects users with the people and services around them," said Kate Imbach, director of marketing at Skyhook Wireless. "This app showcases how quality location can make apps much more useful and relevant to users' needs."

mmatcher can be downloaded for free today in the Android Marketplace.  Find out more at http://mmatcher.com
