Thrutu – Changing the Conversation…Today!

March 3, 2011

We’re proud to announce the launch of our client Thrutu, a free mobile app that brings new digital sharing capabilities into the phone call. For the first time, users can share location, contacts, photos and more – all with a single button – without having to leave the phone call and navigate through an assortment of apps.  It’s a breakout app that’s so simple and fun that it leaves you wondering why your app phone couldn’t do this before now?

We began working with this Sequoia-backed team two months ago when they were still in stealth mode and known as Calistoga.

You’ll now find the Thrutu team in downtown Palo Alto, ground zero for exciting developments in mobile in Silicon Valley.  Congratulations to the Thrutu team, and in particular Liz Rice, VP, Simon Williams, SVP, and Chris Mairs, CTO.  Onward!

Thrutu is available beginning today on the Android Market.  Xconomy.com says, “Thrutu Reinvents the Phone Call”.  Read more about it here… http://bit.ly/h6sYoL

    I agree Thrutu is absolutely awesome – but it is by no means new.

    An Australian company Bullant (where I was CEO), built and sold an identical app to Vodafone UK in 2004. The company was funded as uiActive (now xumii). We filed a patent application in Australia and PCT. I then left the company and it seems the patent app has lapsed.

    You can read the full details on a blog post I just published:

    I hope the Thrutu guys succeed – it’s an awesome app and, as you say, it really is a game-changer.

    Thank you for your comment. We shared with our client Thrutu, but may have contacted them directly as well.
