Having an app to tell you what other apps to have might seem like the world of smartphones finally deciding to eat its own tail, but it hasn’t stopped investors from putting $4.5m (£2.8m) towards Drippler, a service that does exactly that.
The app aims to improve daily operations on your smartphone, combining a news aggregator that pulls in information on your specific model and operating systems with tips and advice, as well as app and game recommendations based on your personal preferences.
Investors in the firm’s Series A funding round include Titanium Investments, who led the round, iAngels, and TMT Investments, as well as private investors including David Assia, Christian Gaiser and Reuven Agassi.
The app monetises itself through its app recommendations, working with other developers and tech brands to help them reach their target audiences and acquire high-value customers who will provide lifetime value.
The Israel-based startup plans to use the investment funding to develop its technology and data offerings, as well as expanding its workforce at both its Tel Aviv headquarters and its newly opened San Francisco office.
