[prMac.com] Seoul, Korea, Republic Of - StarCall, the app that gives KPOP fans a chance for personal mobile-to-mobile video encounters with KPOP chart toppers has already skyrocketed into the top 200 free apps in the iTunes App Store.
StarCall's quick rise in popularity is undoubtedly due to the stable of Korean pop-music superstars which have signed on to the SK service. Their official endorsement allows their fans the chance to exchange video calls and have exclusive access to the stars lives behind the scenes. StarCall launched with an already impressive list of over thirty of the most talented and successful KPOP performers and groups, including Super Junior, F(x), BoA, Girls Generation, among others, nor did it stop there. StarCall continues to add KPOP idols, to the delight of fans. IU, an award-winning singer who dominated the digital download charts this year, has just signed on.
StarCall offers fans an up-close and personal way to get to know KPOP's most adored stars. The app is titled after its most exclusive feature - video calling in real time, directly with the stars. Fans that would otherwise never have an opportunity to meet their idols face to face are able to have the next best thing to a personal encounter with the stars they love most. StarCall is not, however, simply a video calling service. It provides fans an all-inclusive way to keep up on the daily lives of KPOP's hottest, with targeted news feeds and interactive, real-time social network integration with Facebook and Twitter. Fans customize their StarCall experience based upon their favorite stars, and gain unprecedented access to their off-stage lifestyles.
StarCall has skyrocketed up the free downloads list in the iTunes App Store. By continuing to sign artists like IU (Good Day, Someday, The Story Only I Didn't Know), it is guaranteed to stay hot and get hotter.
