New Updates Make SquareHub the First App Parents Should Install on New Smartphones and Tablets This Holiday Season

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - December 18, 2013) - SquareHub™, the private social network designed exclusively for families, is now available for Apple® iOS7 smartphones and tablets via the Apple App Store™. In addition, a new version for Android™ devices which now includes the new Family Sharing feature is also available today via Google Play™ and the Amazon® AppStore for Android™. SquareHub should be the first app parents install on the new smartphones or tablets for their tweens and teens this holiday season to keep everyone in the family connected.

SquareHub for iOS7 version of Apple smartphones and tablets

"SquareHub for iOS 7 introduces many subtle, yet elegant UI changes, such as borderless buttons, translucent bars, and leverages more of the screen to view messages, pictures, to-do's, maps for checking in, and lists of family activities," said Dave Cotter CEO and co-founder of SquareHub. "Our unique use of color backgrounds makes the app appealing to all ages, and our increased font size makes it more readable for younger kids and adults."

Family Sharing now available on Android smartphones and tablets

SquareHub has now released its Family Sharing feature on Android devices. Family Sharing has been incredibly popular on the recently-released Apple iOS version. With Family Sharing, families can now share SquareHub moments, photos and activities with extended family and friends without adding them to their own SquareHub network. Everyone in the family's SquareHub can continue the conversation in the app, while selected friends and family participate via email. It's a great way to share special SquareHub moments with grandparents, organize a neighborhood block party, share a photo with close family friends, send invites to a birthday party, or verify location details for a carpool all while maintaining complete privacy for all the other details in your family's SquareHub network.

First app parents should install on new devices

International Data Corporation® (IDC) estimates that one billion smartphones and tablets will be sold by the end 2013. For kids, tweens and teens, these devices will make up 5 out of the top 10 most wished for gifts this holiday season. In light of recent news and concerns about the lack of privacy and safety for kids participating in social networks, SquareHub is the first app parents should install on their kid's new Apple or Android smartphones or tablets.

SquareHub allows families to privately send messages, share photos, coordinate schedules and give location information easily through their mobile devices. Whether it's families with young kids starting to explore technology, those with mobile tweens and teens constantly connected via their phones, blended families coordinating plans or families sharing across multiple locations, SquareHub brings them all together.
