Opinionaided Announces Version 3.1 and $4.3 Million in Funding
New York, NY, August 11, 2011 – Opinionaided has announced the release of version 3.1 of its mobile application as it simultaneously announces receiving $4.3 million in funding. The Q&A startup is attracting plenty of attention from advice-driven mobile app users and investors alike.
Opinionaided’s free iOS app, developed by DOOR3, allows users to get advice and opinions on the fly. Within the app, users can input a question, determine a category (i.e. relationships, politics) and submit it for other Opinionaided users to answer. After a question is posted, fellow Opinionaided users can comment on the question and the app will calculate the percentage of users that responded positively or negatively.
Version 3.1 introduces improvements in performance, friend searching and user interface as well as new functionalities such as searching online for images relating to questions, sending questions to phone contacts via SMS and referring public questions to a friend via Facebook to name just a few. As of June 2011, the app is seeing an average of 73 responses per questions and users spend nearly 3 hours per month using it.
The startup has also announced receipt of $4.3 million in funding led by SoftBank Capital and BlueRun Ventures with General Catalyst, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Mark Wachen, Jonah Goodhart, Karl Jacob, ENIAC Ventures and Vince Monical also participating. This newest round of funding brings the company’s total funding to $5.3 million.
