Jotly, the Ultimate App for Sharing Everything with Everyone (Psych!)


Wouldn't it be great if there was an app that broke down all the barriers between you and the world? Haven't you been waiting for mobile, social software that lets you share not just companies and restaurants, but everything (including ice cube ratings) with everyone? Now that app is here.

It's called Jotly, and it doesn't actually exist, except in the funnier-than-you-think-it-can-be video above. Take a look. I think you'll enjoy how the video manages to send up nearly every startup cliche in just two minutes.

Its creator, Alex Cornell, said to look out for "the color blue, rounded corners, SoLoMo, ratings, points, free iPads, ridiculous name (complete with random adverbing via "ly"), overpromising, private beta, giant buttons, "friction-less" sign up, no clear purpose, and of course a promo video."
