ABOUT RECOMMEND

Recommend is the first app that enables you to find the best advice from friends and experts you trust, save your own relevant experiences and share them with your network.

  • It’s a memory tool to recall quality tips for yourself and your network.
  • It’s an influence tool for experts and taste makers.
  • It’s a solution that personalizes advice and focuses on the quality of your network’s relationships and trust instead of crowdsourcing from strangers.

Unveiled as an alpha version at LeWeb in December 2012, Recommend was selected as a runner up for best start-up and officially launched its beta in November 2013. Since then it has been a finalist at 4YFN Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, selected at The Next Web’s Boost initiative, and has been featured as “Best New Apps” on Apple’s App store.
