There’s an old saying about tying a ribbon around your finger to remind you of important events, it was only a matter of time until technology stepped in and made an improvement upon the original. Ribbon is a new iOS app that incorporates social opportunities into your calendar. It displays your Facebook friends on a TimeMap and organizes them into “Big Cities.” But the most exciting thing this app does is shed light on business meeting and social opportunities they might have missed.
Founder and CEO Tony Alfaro said the app is all about future plans and being able to coordinate those plans with others.
“Ribbon provides significant value to users in exchange for sharing future travel and event plans. Whether planning to visit New York or London, a music festival, sporting event or car race, users can update their Ribbon and uncover social and business meeting opportunities that would not have otherwise existed. We envision Ribbon becoming an exciting and engaging utility that people will use and embrace as a part of their daily lives, whether at home or on the road,” Alfaro said in a statement.
The company just closed on a $2 million from several investors in a Series A round and seems to be gaining success. Fueled, a mobile design and development firm in New York City, designed and developed the app. Ribbon can be downloaded from the Apple App Store.
