Student Entrepreneurs Release Mobile App

in Navigation (E)

[] Provo, Utah - Giraffon, a company composed of 4 young Brigham Young University students, created their first iPhone app, "GoTo", and launched it in the Appstore. Founder and CEO Russell Ochoa, 22, a sophomore studying communications, created Giraffon with help of James Lambert, 21, a sophomore studying computer science. They got together to fulfill their dreams of creating successful iPhone apps. Together they started working with GoTo and eventually added more people to their small team.

"We want to create iPhone apps that everyone would want to have in their phone," Russell said. "We think that GoTo is a great start to eventually have Giraffon in everyone's mobile."

GoTo is an application that lets people find any business or location with an iPhone without doing any typing. In under three taps, you can find the closest location of your final destination. All the categories are displayed in an easy to use interface. This functionality works all over the world as long as there is Internet access.

The app does not only help people do local searches but it also includes a compass and gives them a weather report of their actual standing location. With its unique interface - search categories presented as a geared clock to display - GoTo will attract the eye of any mobile user. Not only does it have an attractive look but it is very useful as well.

The company has had great success since they started in February. Because of their focus on detail and professionalism, many local businesses have contacted them to develop iPhone apps. Currently they are working on an iPhone app game that they say will be a huge success in the appstore. They don't want to release any of the specs of the game yet as they are still working on it. They say it will be a big surprise for everyone.

Device Requirements:
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 4.0 or later
* 3.1 MB

Pricing and Availability:
