MENLO PARK, Calif., Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Serial entrepreneur and founder of Hipscan, Verizon Wireless EVO, and SpinnerMail - Bobby Marhamat today announced the launch of jabberly (www.jabberly.com), a user-based app designed to connect people around the country and help them share information instantaneously. The application enables consumers to use their mobile device to ask questions about a location and get real-time answers from others already checked in to the location – no matter where they are in the country. Users that have special insights or offers about the location can also add them into the user-based offer repository. All actions users take on the site allow them to earn jabberCRED, which translates into real money to be used at jabberly-featured merchant destinations. The app is available for download free of charge on iTunes at iphone.jabberly.com. An Android version is slated to be announced soon as well.
jabberly provides an interactive, consumer-sourced platform, enabling customers to exchange inside information about their favorite vendors, locations, and attractions in real-time both onsite and remotely. Membership is not required, but users who sign up to become jabberly members can comment and participate on the site as well as accumulate jabberCRED for exchanging inside tips and recommendations, like how long the line is at a taco truck, or how busy the new nightclub is. Members can use jabberCRED as a virtual currency to receive exclusive real money vouchers, which they can redeem at their favorite merchants.
Key Features Include:
- Instant feedback: Consumers can login anytime and receive real-time information from peers about venues, events, and promotions.
- P2P and Geo-location: Top-notch technology enables users to share and pinpoint locations in real time.
- Extend Network: Users can create a new social layer in their life and grow their friend network.
"The idea for jabberly came about when I was having trouble getting to a networking event in San Francisco, and found myself frantically searching for information on the event to determine if it was worth the trouble and expense of coordinating transportation," said Bobby Marhamat, Founder and CEO of jabberly. "jabberly provides a simple and practical solution to getting information about events in real-time, and it lets users share information on a social level about a hangout, shop or meet up."
jabberly is positioned to take hold of the social media market in a way few other apps have the potential to. As a sign of solidarity, five of San Francisco's most swanky and popular bars have partnered with jabberly to offer a glass of free beer to customers who download the app and redeem the special offer this August 29th from 5pm-8pm. Visit freebeer.jabberly.com for more details on this special pre-launch promotion, and get out to Per Diem, Alibi, Taverna Aventine, Lucky Strike, and/or Northstar to enjoy your free glass of beer this August 29th, 2012.
