SANTA MONICA, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 8, 2014) - Rowl (, the new way to discover what's happening across a variety of categories including music, sports, comedy, and nearby hangouts, has announced the official launch of its new mobile service. The free iOS app allows users to create their own events and hangouts with their friends as well as follow their favorite artists and celebrities to see when they will be making appearances nearby. Rowl is helping users discover where the action is and what their friends are up to. Never miss an event again!

To support the launch, Rowl has partnered with Grammy-nominated country music star, Hunter Hayes, 22, whose most successful single, "Wanted," has sold over 3.5 million copies, making him the youngest male act to ever top the Billboard Hot Country Songs. Hayes' fans can now follow his Rowl profile to receive timely updates on his upcoming tour along with special perks and promotions.

"Rowl cuts through the noise of native messaging apps, social networking apps, and location-based apps to piece together what friends are doing and where they will be," said Rowl Co-Founder and CEO, Fred E. Tannous. "Rowl allows users to create their own events and even stores their interests to follow them wherever they go. Users can also organize their own events (i.e. BBQs, game nights, etc.) and notify friends in the area automatically via the app."

"Artists, celebrities and other influencers are often challenged with effectively reaching their audience through traditional online means," commented Bill Glaser, Co-Founder and President of Rowl. "Often times, social media updates from bands, DJs, comedians, etc. get lost between Facebook posts, snaps, tweets and endless ads. Fans find out about events when tickets are already sold out or, even worse, when it's already passed. We are solving this problem by providing them with automatic notifications of when their favorite influencer is coming to town so they so they can have a chance to purchase tickets -- or maybe win some!"
