Major Milestone for Trend Media's flagship app

Thursday 3rd September 2015 - Kingston, Jamaica: Loop News, the Caribbean's leading news resource, today announced that it has hit a major milestone having reached a whopping 500,000 downloads from the Google Play store since its entry in the market just over a year ago.

Following on from its early successes in Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, Cayman and Curacao, the app, which showcases the best local, regional and international news, was recently launched in several new countries including Haiti, St. Lucia, Suriname, Aruba and Bonaire. To complement the new market launches, Loop released a new and improved version of the app for both Android and iOS users - as well as launching a Windows Phone version for the first time.

Speaking from the company's Kingston, Jamaica headquarters, Trend Media Group CEO, Richie Kelly, said; "Today is a terrific day for Loop, celebrating such an important milestone and reaching so many users across the Caribbean.  As a Caribbean company, born and bred, we are extremely proud to have passed that 500,000th download so soon after launch - a fantastic achievement and testament to our hard working teams across the region."

"That said, this is only the beginning! We're in the process of finalising another major release of our app which will come with many more great new features – further cementing our position as the go-to app for news in the region. With such a huge reception for Loop in such a short period of time, we are now setting our sights on 1 million downloads and 10 more market launches before the year is out. Watch this space," concluded Kelly.

With its cutting-edge product development and unique local news offering, the Loop news app has seen exponential growth, making it the Caribbean's number one news app in just six months.
