Rally Up

Rally Up

Update: Rally Up was acquired by AOL in August, 2010. 

Rally Up is an iPhone app / social network for your real friends.  You can download it free for the iPhone (or iPad, or iPod Touch) here. It’s like foursquare, but for people you actually know (not just your facebook or twitter friends.) Rally Up was launched by the same team who built 12seconds, in Santa Cruz, CA.

The app launched in March 2010, and had a great reception in the press, and thousands of downloads in the first week.  Coverage came in from technology and Mac-focused publications including Techcrunch, Mashable, ReadWriteWeb, VentureBeat, Cult of Mac, TUAW, PC Mag and more.

In August of 2010, Rally Up was acquired by AOL.  Techcrunch broke the story, which also made it onto Techmeme.  Mazel Tov to the Rally Up team!
