It’s finally here!
After many, many late nights our iOS app launched at midnight. You can download it right now!
We launched on desktop only about 9 months ago. Then all you could do was post and follow people. You couldn’t even comment!
People thought we were insane for not going mobile first. Well we had our reasons and if I could do it again, I wouldn’t do it any differently. We’ve built an amazing community here with a solid creative backbone.
And today feels like a birthday or something. Like just grew up a little.
So please go download the app. It is wonderful. We worked very hard on it. And Android users, don’t fret we’re working on it!
And to borrow from @budnitz:
1. Download the Ello app. And rate it if you love it! This will help us get Ello featured in the App store, always a good thing.
Invite the people you love. If they tried Ello long ago, encourage them to take another look. And if you're using the Ello App, you can now find & invite friends using your contact list.
Tell people about Ello on every other social network you use! Post “Download the awesome new Ello App!” or share these images if you think Ello is awesome. You can share posts on Ello to other networks too, just use the share button under any post.
We love you all.
PS. This is just the first version of the app. We have lots of features/improvements queued up, so keep an eye out for updates.
