A Transformational Community App, "Skopic" Disrupts the Local and Social Space

Skopic keeps local communities real time, engaged and information networked via community sourced, clutter free micro-blog messages. It is a new paradigm to develop, organize and connect local information.

Skopic has created a very unique space for itself and presents very different vision and value than Nextdoor or Yik Yak which have been talked about recently in the media” says Skopic’s Chief Evangelist and Co founder, Murali Pidathala. “Given its potential for sustained user adoption and low internet requirements, Skopic has a great potential for ubiquity” he added.

Ravi Gudapati, who is an Investor and a Co founder said, “Skopic renews the sense of purpose in social apps for local good” He also added, “Skopic app can be extended to other regions within the United States by requesting to open a new community and a new country launch India is expected to happen in a couple months”

Skopic’s initial adopters feel Skopic fills in the big missing use case in popular apps like Facebook groups, Twitter and Yahoo Groups that are overly cluttered, casual, out of context and untimely.

A few initial adopters include communities at Prospect High School, EDS Neighborhood, Santa Clara University, San Jose State University, University of California at Davis and for-cause local groups in SF Bay Area.
