Webaroo morphs into SMSGupshup..to move office to India

Webaroo has decided to morph into it’s portfolio product, SMSGupshup – the site now redirects to smsgupshup’s site.

Webaroo started an application that will enable users to search and browse web pages without an Internet connection. Its use is especially targeted towards laptops and mobile devices.

Timelines:

  • Released a beta version of their software in the second week of April 2006 for use to the general public.
  • Launched smsgupshup in April of 2007,
  • Raised $11mn funding (July 2008), realized that webaroo’s sitedownloader is not working and it seems they have decided to kill the sitedownloader and focus all energy on SMSGupshup.

Also, we have learnt that webaroo is moving the entire team to India – those who aren’t moving over are moving on.
