There's an enormous shift in mobile. With 1.6M+ apps, we're fatigued in discovering and downloading apps. Even with the right apps, they don’t communicate with each other, and the way we search and share is encumbered by switching from app to app or mobile web. It's no wonder why people are talking about integrated app platforms, as seen in the runaway success of WeChat in Asia (500M+ daily users).

Ever try to find places, book reservations, and share plans on your phone? On average it takes 5+ apps and an intolerable amount of toggling back and forth between apps to do so.

Vurb connects your apps to bring people, places, and things together. Go out. Find new places to eat. Get movie times. Order an Uber or Lyft. Use Vurb Chat to sync up with your friends - all in one app. Best of all, you don’t have to hop from app to app to do it. Finally your phone works the way it’s supposed to.
