Social media on the move

Founder: Doug Richard, David Whitewood
Website: www.trutap.com

Former Dragons’ Den panellist Doug obviously has a reputation for spotting a potential money-spinner, so we’ve got high hopes for his latest offering. Trutap is a mobile phone application which allows users to access instant messaging, photo sharing and social networking sites such as Facebook while on the move. Doug describes it as ‘your social life in the palm of your hand’. Despite still being in beta mode the service is already available in more than 200 countries.
