With the advent of smartphones and Cloud services, it’s now easier than ever to keep up to date with events within the world. Whether these are very localised events like receiving a text message from a family member or global events such as receiving an alert from a 24/7 news feed, or anywhere in between – there is always something happening.
While it’s now very easy to be notified, it’s also getting harder to not be notified, or at least to control how you are notified. So, we want people to be connected, but still empowered to define how they are connected (no one wants to see a football score alert pop up while they’re watching the game with a few seconds lag) – and to what extent external influences have over their lives.
We want to achieve this vision by developing a platform that unifies applications which generate notifications with the services that consume them. Snarl then acts as a central hub, concentrating incoming notifications and transmitting them to you how and when you decide to receive them.
We also want you to be secure: in a world of cloud-based information, we feel managing these notifications from a hub that you run on your home PC protects you more than sending them across the Internet to an anonymous hosting company.
Consider Snarl a blank canvas: we can’t wait to see what you do with it…
