Omlet – A safe way to connect with friends

MobiSocial is a start-up from the StartX incubator at Stanford University. Their first product, Omlet, is a messaging app that keeps the data in control of the user. Users can share images, text, video, music with anyone using an iOS or Android device.

When data is shared between strangers, contact information is restricted. The company claims on their website that they’ll never monetize or sell user data.  Prior to founding in 2013, the company sustained itself through research grants.

ASUS  announced at the beginning of the year that all of their new ZenFones will come with Omlet chat.  The company’s overall mission is to create social networking experiences where the user is the customer as opposed to the product.
