After working with my friend Arun over these past few months–advising him on his new mobile app Pixora (both personally, and as a blogger)–I was so thrilled to help plan, and host his launch party last week. Arun originally came to me with this idea for a highly curated, visual content sharing app (now Pixora) a couple of years ago when I was living in Upstate New York. (He’s always ahead of the curve.) I wasn’t so sure about that first version he showed me and remember giving him my two cents. Turns out, now a couple of years later, Arun took my thoughts seriously and we toasted to the launch with some local SF bloggers last Monday!
So what is Pixora? It’s a highly curated app connected to awesome content. You can browse across various categories: fashion, beauty, home, lifestyle etc., follow your favorite bloggers, and ultimately find unique inspiration. From a blogger’s standpoint, I appreciate that Pixora sends traffic back to CITNB, and from a personal standpoint, I love that every photo is backed with great content. I could go on, and there are many exciting things in the pipeline (shopping and search are coming soon!), however you might just want to click over and learn more about Pixora in this video that we made recently here and download it in the Apple App store here to discover more yourself.
I’ve really loved learning more about the mobile space over these past few months which has made me realize how important my own (CITNB) mobile experience is. (Working on fixing this at the moment!) Also, as a blogger, how important it is to have your content accessible within mobile apps like Pixora. So for those of you who are not in Pixora but would like your content to be included you can email the team at: [email protected]
And a note about this space: I highly recommend Cookhouse if you’re in need of an SF event space. It’s stunning, intimate, you can bring in your own catering and set it up in any way you want–a private dinner / cocktail hour you name it.
And just out of curiosity, while I have you and am chatting about mobile–do you read your favorite blogs on the web or browse them via your phone?
