Two-year-old startup enters the mobile space with its first native mobile product to address growth of mobile users. Also announces strong revenue and growth numbers, as well as plans to double staff.

StackSocial announced the launch of its free iPhone app and is on an eight-figure annualized revenue run-rate.

StackSocial, the leading platform to discover and buy trending technology products, signaled its entry into the mobile space with the release of its free iPhone app on the Apple iTunes App Store today, allowing faster on-the-go access for its rapidly growing mobile userbase. The Southern California startup also announced that its revenue grew over 250% in 2013 and is on an eight-figure annualized run-rate. The size and revenue earned on the company’s native commerce platform more than doubled over the past year, with top publishers grossing seven-figures in sales.

Today, StackSocial launches its native iOS app, giving tech early adopters convenient and exclusive access to discover and purchase the latest gadgets, award-winning software, category-leading games, and disruptive web products directly through the app from hundreds of hand-picked brands and successful indie makers. The application offers fast performance, one-touch purchase capability, and a streamlined browsing experience for on-the-go access to innovative products at the steep discount prices on which the company has built its reputation.

"We’re thrilled that all iPhone users can now browse and shop our extensive catalog of the most coveted technology products," said StackSocial founder and CEO Josh Payne. "Technology and innovation are in our DNA and, as we’re all aware, mobile is at the forefront of those movements. With over a third of our existing traffic coming from mobile phones and tablets, this is just the beginning of our mobile strategy. Our users can expect native iPad and Android versions coming this year, as well."

Since launching in 2011, StackSocial has offered both a direct-to-consumers marketplace, as well as an integrated commerce platform for web publishers. In 2013, StackSocial’s membership base exceeded 600,000, and its publisher network reach grew to over 50 million monthly tech enthusiasts. The network consists of dozens of media partners, including AOL, Gizmodo, Lifehacker, Kotaku, CNET, TheNextWeb, 9to5Mac, and IGN, who are demonstrating the power of content and commerce done right. Already a profitable startup, the Venice, CA–based company is looking to rapidly expand in 2014. With 20 employees, it expects to double in size this year.
