In a world filled with multi-tasking, continuous side-hustling, and all around attempting to manage your life, everyone has their own way of keeping track of what they want to accomplish. From Evernote to Asana, each platform and offering has their own unique set of features that make it appealing. However, today a new contender, WeDo, is entering the ring and focusing on a collaborative approach to clearing your to-do list.
Today, the WeDo iOS app is officially shedding the beta tag and releasing to the public. Led by Spencer Shulem and Raad Mobrem, WeDo focuses on chatting with others and completing tasks. More specifically it allows users to track and complete tasks, get relevant reminders, and create and organize spaces for different groups of people. Currently, WeDo is only available on iOS, and does not have a web version available.
“Our goal is to enable our users to get more done as efficiently as possible and based on our customers’ feedback so far, WeDo has helped them increase their productivity immensely,” said Shulem.
According to the company, since launching the beta in May WeDo received more than 18,000 signups and their superusers return to the app up-to 28 times each day.
“Customers have shared how much the communication function is helping them collaborate,” adds Mobrem. “Our superusers include families, roommates and wedding parties who are using the product to manage their tasks together.”
Prior to working on WeDo, Mobrem founded and then later sold his company Lettuce to Intuit for $30 million. At that time he sought out a new problem to solve, which led him to a conversation with an investor that introduced him to now 21-year-old Shulem. “Within minutes of meeting Spencer, I knew he was different,” says Mobrem.
Between Shulem’s to-do list concept and Mobrem’s entrepreneurial background, the duo went to work and brought the concept to life.
Earlier in the year the company raised $900K in an angel round led by Telegraph Hill Capital. They plan to launch an Android version of the app in the future.
