KillerStartups Weekly Roundup

#nocapes. Doesn’t matter if you’re a first time founder or a celebrity entrepreneur – No capes! Don’t make us say it again. We can’t bear to see you brought down from the big stage.

 

 

Far better, superheroes, to fill your startup utility belt at KillerStartups this week with backups of your cloud files, a tool to dispose of awkward introductions, and the magical ability to connect to free WiFi networks anywhere with ease (and, yes, Edna Mode, you are invited to design our suits anytime).

Killer Startups

  • The days of ordering in out of sheer laziness, resigned to eating unhealthy food, are going away. Munchery is a food delivery service the likes of which we haven’t seen before.
  • Bumblegram. Is a messenger service with a fun and practical addition about to give WhatsApp a run for its money?
  • We’ve moved our services and data into the clouds happily, but somehow forgot to bring the habit of creating backups along. Phew, Revert is looking out for us.
  • Using misleading photos for your profile on a dating app… Good luck with that. For all the more honest romantics out there that can take a current picture, there’s 7heaven.

 

Living the Startup Life

  • Please allow me to introduce myself, an app of generosity and grace. Favour, you little devil – making introductions simple and natural.
  • Your average city guide doesn’t speak to the needs of digital nomads, who care a lot about things like internet quality and co-working spaces. Smart thinking, Nomad List, to help this segment of the workforce find the info they need.
  • Will we go on taking selfies until the end of time or are we going to start having some real fun with photos? Have a look at the WePose app.

 

Startup Tips & Trends

  • Understandable if you’re hung up on finding a perfect brand name – one that isn’t taken, too similar to others, too literal… you know the list of common offenses. Good news: Brandroot can help you push off the starting block.
  • Connect to free WiFi before you arrive, without bothering to enter passwords. Oh, yes, it can be done.
  • Visually engaging content that’s easily shareable. The good people at Buffer realized that relevant images lift views from the basement to the penthouse in now time, so they created a tool, Pablo, to help produce more appealing social media quickly.
