Ello, the ad-free social networking service that launched in March 2014, is planning to support the Windows Phone platform with an app, in addition to plans for Android and iOS apps. This news comes via a email sent to a Windows Central reader who asked Ello if they had plans to make a Windows Phone app.
The email stated, in part:
"We are working on Ello mobile apps for iPhones, Androids, AND Window's Phones! :) We'll send out a newsletter when each is released so that you know when they are available to use. Once the app is out, Ello should run more smoothly on mobile devices."
Ello has said it will never run ads or sell data from its users. It's manifesto on this subject stated:
"We believe a social network can be a tool for empowerment. Not a tool to deceive, coerce and manipulate — but a place to connect, create and celebrate life. You are not a product."
Ello is currently an invitation-only service but there's no word on its current user numbers. It has received $5.5 million in venture capital investments and also generates revenues through sales of t-shirts.
Thanks to Rene for the tip!
