SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ONVOLO, a social discovery service that connects people nearby safely and instantaneously based on common needs and interests, is now available for download on the App Store and in Google Play. Derived from the Latin verb "Volo," meaning "I want," ONVOLO offers an interactive social platform with endless opportunities for people to interact and find exactly what they are looking for: items for sale, services, housing, activity partners or even a new best friend.
"ONVOLO is the answer to anyone who has ever asked why sites like Craigslist couldn't be safer, more social, instantaneous, and catered to meet their specific needs," said ONVOLO Co-Founder and CEO Haydar Haba. "We've taken social discovery to a whole new level by allowing people to not only post and find anything they need, but also to share hobbies, thoughts, and recommendations in real time based on interests and geo-location."
ONVOLO is transforming the classifieds landscape by offering a social, trusted alternative to other platforms. Member profiles feature a photo and a description, ratings by other members and ONVOLO's unique TrustGuard™ score. A member's TrustGuard™ can be increased by verifying personal information such as an email address, telephone number and social media account(s).
Other unique features of the app include:
- Relevance - ONVOLO uses GPS location, key words and hashtags to connect members based on proximity and common interests.
- Real-time - Instantaneous communication via in-app chat, call or email allows members to connect immediately.
- Personalization - Fully customizable profile allows members to post a picture and a short description, allowing other members to "meet" the person behind each post.
- Discovery - The Explore feature offers endless opportunities to discover people, activities, items and offers nearby even without searching for a specific category need.
Following a 4-week soft launch period, ONVOLO announced its full launch today to New York City and San Francisco residents, with expansion plans for a nationwide launch later this fall.
The app is free for everyone. ONVOLO also plans to introduce an in-app currency called VOLO$ that will allow members the ability to barter or trade within the platform.
