Shuffle Celebrates First Year with Users in 35 Countries and 70 Percent Month-over-Month Organic Growth
Mobile Privacy Beginning to Resonate with Over 450 Million Smartphone Users in North America and Western Europe
CALGARY, Alberta – May 2, 2016 – Shuffle Ventures, the developer of smart mobile communications apps that enable individuals to connect with the world while protecting their personal privacy, is marking its one-year anniversary with 70% percent month-over-month organic growth across 35 countries. Launched in the U.S. and Canadian App Stores in May 2015, Shuffle adds a much-needed layer of privacy to smartphones, enabling mobile users to create multiple phone numbers and email aliases to eliminate the need to share private contact details online.
“When we launched Shuffle a year ago, we knew privacy would be an important differentiator, but now it’s more relevant than ever, with hundreds of millions of mobile users now reliant on what has become their only phone number,” said Craig Collet, Founder and CEO of Shuffle Ventures. “Our overt approach and deep focus on mobile privacy have contributed to the exciting recent growth we’ve seen, and we’re just getting started. Soon we’ll be unveiling a proprietary feature set that empowers users to manage both incoming and outgoing calls with increased control and privacy, an industry-first.”
Consumers and business users alike are increasingly embracing ‘smart’ mobile communication solutions to enhance productivity and inject some much needed organization and privacy into their super-connected lives. Instead of posting their private mobile numbers to the web or sharing them publicly with everyone, Shuffle users can instantly set up virtual phone numbers that work with any iOS mobile device for private and secure calls and messaging. Shuffle provides “A Number For Every Occasion™”, and in the not-so-distant future, it’s anticipated that many smartphone users will have at least one alternative mobile number with which to connect.
With Shuffle, a single device can now have a separate number for personal contacts, business contacts, classified ads, online dating, a home business, a private line and so much more. Shuffle is the ‘smart’, easy and affordable way to inject much needed organization, simplicity and privacy into day-to-day communications.
Shuffle provides local phone numbers, high-quality LTE and Wi-Fi calling, voicemail, SMS, picture messaging and email all in one service, making it a complete communications solution. With plans starting at just $1.99/month, the company provides flexible, affordable, transparent pricing that gives users 100% visibility into where their money is going. And customers can save even more money, since all texts and picture messaging with other Shuffle users are free.
