What is the history and popularity of the app?

Mobli is a team of about 25 employees out of New York. Its CEO is Moshiko Hogeg who came up with the idea sitting in the nosebleed seats at a concert. He thought it'd be cool if someone who had a smartphone recording the event from a better vantage point could share their content with him. And so, Mobli was born. Mobli's been reviewed on such publications as PCMag, VentureBeat and Mashable. It touts a 4.5+ star rating on the AppStore. Interestingly, Mobli has added Leonardo DiCaprio as an investor and adviser. The future looks bright for this ingenious and innovative start up.

What are the differences to other apps?

Mobli is unique from other photo-sharing software applications in that it harnesses the power of smartphones in a more advanced way. It allows people to document events and experiences and bring that content and media to those who are excited to see them. Any content that is uploaded can be tagged and then it is visible to those users who are following those particular tagged items. It's a great way to see how the life of someone else is going, what they are experiencing and connecting to and experiencing events from another place via the Mobli platform.
