Company / App Name: Volley.
What does it do?
Volley presents a stream of articles sent from your friends. You can send them an article by copying-and-pasting a url or by using our bookmarklet from the browser. You can also subscribe to get articles automatically from authors.
Why do we need it?
We realized that we read dozens of articles online each day but we didn’t have a dedicated app to share and discuss those articles with our friends.
Who is it for?
Anyone who likes to read thoughtful articles on the web
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
Article sharing tools are currently overly algorithmic and impersonal (Prismatic, Zite) or overwhelming and unfocused (Twitter, Facebook, Flipboard).
Volley is the first app with a laser focus on getting article sharing right for mobile.
New designs and group article sharing to help replace e-mail lists.
