[prMac.com] Stamford, United Kingdom - All Square(R), a new social network for golfers, has launched a mobile app enabling golfers to share and compare their golf experiences worldwide. The iPhone app allows golfers to connect with friends, upload photos and videos, post comments and receive instant notifications, all recorded on a personal timeline. The beta launch of the iOS app - at the PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida, January 22-24, 2014 - establishes a new global platform for golfers.
Patrick Rahme, Co-Founder and CEO of All Square said, "All Square connects the power of people's love for golf on one free, accessible and engaging social media platform designed exclusively for golfers. Golfers love talking about the courses they've played, the latest equipment they've purchased and swing tips - and the All Square app enables them to share all of these things instantly with friends, on and off the course, wherever they are in the world."
All Square was recently showcased at the 'Plug and Play Tech Center' in Silicon Valley, California, ahead of the app's launch. The business accelerator specializes in growing tech startups and only select international ventures are invited to join the program, which has previously invested in and supported companies such as Google, PayPal and Dropbox.
All Square is also working closely with global golf course management company Troon(R) Golf on its international development and has been selected by KPMG, the global professional services firm, to join its K-Start program for entrepreneurs. "We are currently testing different features within the app to find out which golfers find most appealing," continued Patrick Rahme. "One such feature is 'Rate my Swing' where you can instantly upload a video of your swing from your iPhone and have your friends comment and rate it. The directory of golf courses on the app, which complements the global interactive course map we have on the website, is also something we believe golfers will enjoy. All Square is designed to be a global platform for course reviews and ranking." The launch of the app will be supported by advertising on Facebook, Twitter and other social media channels.
