CAMPBELL, CA and TORONTO, ON, July 16, 2014 /CNW/ - Sprylogics International Corp. ("Sprylogics" or the "Company") (TSXV: SPY), a technology provider of local mobile search and messaging solutions for consumers and businesses, announced that iHookup Social, Inc. (OTCQB: HKUP), a mobile application positioned at the intersection of dating, social media and location based connections, has signed an agreement to integrate the Company's Poynt-Enabled SDK into its mobile Apps for smartphone users.

"We are excited about our Poynt local search integration with iHookUp Social, bringing the best local search data to its users," says Marvin Igelman, CEO of Sprylogics. "These new local search features will help make iHookup unique and further enhance the user experience with the ability to search, invite a friend or plan to meet for a coffee or at a restaurant nearby -all without leaving the app."
"By far the most significant enhancement to our new version of iHookup Social is the integration of the Poynt location based search technology," said Robert Rositano, CEO, iHookup Social. "With the addition of the Poynt local search technology, we will soon be delivering search and discovery of "LOCAL" places, hot spots and events from within the app, encouraging our users to venture outside the virtual realm and connect based on a local venue of their mutual choosing. We don't believe that in the vast world of online dating that this has ever been done quite like this."
