Helios and Matheson Analytics and Zone Technologies Announce Availability of RedZone Map to Android Users and Exciting New Features

New Android Launch Majorly Expands Availability of RedZone Map as Zone Technologies Prepares RedZone Map for International Rollout

Miami and New YorkDecember 14, 2016– Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. (NASDAQ: HMNY) and its subsidiary Zone Technologies, Inc. (“Zone”) announced today that their RedZone Map app, with expanded proprietary technology achieved through the two companies’ recent merger, now available in the Google Play Store. Loaded with unique innovations, both Android and iOS users will experience a dramatically improved version allowing users to be more aware of their surroundings, and, with the added benefit of social empowerment, work together to make their communities safer.

HMNY’s predictive analytics capabilities have taken RedZone Map to new heights.  With RedZone Map previously ranking among the top five in U.S. navigation apps in the Apple App store right behind Google Maps and Waze, and with the Android launch set to majorly expand the app’s availability to mobile users, Zone expects the popularity of its app to continue growing rapidly. Having been further developed to help navigators and travelers avoid high crime areas, RedZone Map is the only navigation app for mobile devices that displays a safer and riskier route, leaving the choice to the user, with this function currently available across the U.S. and soon slated for international rollout.

The free app’s improved architecture includes:

  • New live crime data with beacons pinpointing crimes committed in the past 48 hours
  • New verbal warning system cautioning five miles in advance of “red zones” while navigating
  • New crowdsourcing technology allowing the user to drop pins for crimes as well as expanded traffic and road hazards
  • New easy pinch “A to B” technology now using dynamic pins incorporating reverse geocoding so that from any location, you can pinch and drop a green pin anywhere in the world for your start location and a red pin for your destination and the system displays distance and drive time. When enabled, sitting in your home in New York City, all you have to do is drop a green pin in Los Angeles and a red pin in San Francisco and you get your safer and riskier route.

“It is amazing that 2016-Q2 sales show that over 86% of the world’s mobile devices have Android operating systems, according to both Gartner and IDC,” said Ted Farnsworth, CEO of Zone and Chairman of the Board of HMNY. “We have been inundated with requests from Android users since our initial launch on iOS, and it is exciting that we will now be able to provide these Android users with the most technically sophisticated navigation and real time crime data app available.”

“We’ve worked hard to expand RedZone Map and it has been truly rewarding”, said Pat Krishnan, HMNY’s CEO. “The Android launch will enable the app to reach many more users, and, with data covering many countries around the world coming close behind, just knowing that our advanced analytics expertise facilitated the achievement of these goals, is very gratifying.”
