New York, NY / San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 23, 2013

Futureful launched today as a free iPad application in the US App Store. The Helsinki-based startup has spent two years refining its minimalist design interface and patented artificial intelligence technology.

The Futureful app provides personal relevancy while encouraging playful curiosity. The ambient flow of related topics provide a never-ending source of content to explore and interact with. And the more you use it, the better it gets, for everyone. “Futureful makes it fun to surf the web again. Everyone should try it. And this is only the beginning of what Futureful can become,” says Janus Friis.

Futureful was founded by a group of humanists and computer scientists who believe real magic can happen when combining human understanding and machine learning. The team has been quietly working towards their founding dream of helping you discover “what you want before you knew you wanted it”. After bootstrapping the early phases of development, and collaborating with leading university research, the startup joined forces with Janus Friis in early 2012.
