NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- (Marketwired) -- 06/19/13 -- Yappn Corp. (OTCBB: YPPN) ("Yappn or the "Company") is pleased to announce that its development platform, Yappn (www.yappn.com), an upcoming online multi-lingual social community where people can meet, chat, engage and consume media in almost 70 languages, set to fully launch in Summer 2013, has begun to share components of its beta program with a select group of commercial clients and prospects.

Yappn is built on four (4) key pillars; Meet, Chat, Engage and Consume in almost any language. Unlike traditional social media systems Yappn offers a truly global experience allowing users to communicate across social and language barriers instantly.

Yappn has already begun to engage a number of commercial programs that it expects will be announced in the next few weeks. These key revenue centric opportunities are the backbone of the Company's long term success plans. Clients include professional and amateur sports organizations, entertainment companies, studios, agencies, broadcasters, major brand groups, conference and trade show organizers and other key market groups who want to globalize social activities and user engagement.

The Yappn beta program will allow users to test and provide feedback on Yappn's unique social structure which provides:

GLOBAL COMMUNITY

Yappn provides companies, brands, organizations and consumers with the ability to start and maintain topical discussion groups in almost any language. Individually, a user sees the Yappn experience in their language and communicates to others in that language, allowing every user to have a native experience in their individual language. This revolutionary technology provides instant globalization.

PRIVATE GROUPS / EVENTS

Individuals, groups, enterprises and events that want a secure place to have a single language or globalized discussion can use Yappn to host their online engagement programs.

INTERACTIVE AND EMBEDDED TOOL SETS

In addition to the Yappn platform (www.yappn.com) creators of discussion boards will be able to embed their Yappn boards in multiple online locations, including other major social media, web and mobile applications.

GAMIFICATION

Yappn offers unique social game events, tools and experiences that will increase user engagement. Trophy rooms provide a way to earn special badges for exclusive experiences within the Yappn community and Yappn Coins can be earned and redeemed for in-community activities.

Yappn has begun to survey users that signed up for the beta program as it qualifies participants for its commercial programs and consumer beta program. Interested parties can sign up for Yappn at www.yappn.com. Qualified first stage beta users will be invited to the closed beta program with an open beta to follow.

On June 13, 2013, Yappn announced that it was launching a global event and broadcast platform for trade shows, meetings and conferences and that a new video would be made available by June 19, 2013 showcasing that program. To view this video, please visit www.yappn.com.
