Chicago-based tech startup, Evzdrop, has rolled out its mobile application and Web platform that helps users to post or “drop” real-time reviews or other insightful content limited to 140 characters from places they are currently located.
In addition, the company has put in major effort to raise $500,000 from angel investors to support the launch of its new app and expansion to markets across the United States.
Evzdrop mobile app lets users post or drop comments about stadiums, bars, parks, hotels, stores, airports and restaurants – places people visit every day on which they have opinions and emotions they want to share.
The app enables users to upload photos to bring more color and validity to drop content, and allows social content sharing via Facebook (News - Alert) and Twitter to maximize reach and bring more validity to posts.
"We saw an opportunity to use place as a powerful interest graph to unveil insights from strangers or friends that otherwise might not be heard," said David Rush, Evzdrop's cofounder and CEO. "Evzdrop was developed to capture more authentic, real-time feedback that has immediate value to consumers and businesses. One of our primary goals is to bring additional focus and clarity to the overwhelming amount of content created today by focusing on place as the common interest."
Evzdrop's mobile app and Web platform provide a real-time snapshot of a location, complete with user insights ranging from parking advice at a concert to real-time feedback about the security line at the airport.
In addition, the business platform offers access to real-time customer insight, as well as an analytics dashboard that shows key demographic information, conversation volume and sentiment.
Those interested can download the Evzdrop for free from the iTunes App Store. Company officials said the Android (News - Alert) version of the app is under development and will hit the market soon.
