YourVersion Launches Real-Time Discovery Engine at the TechCrunch50 Conference

Posted by YourVersion on September 14th, 2009.

We launched our real-time discovery engine today at the TechCrunch50 ConferenceYourVersion provides the best way to discover new, relevant content tailored to your interests and makes it easy to bookmark and share that content. In addition to our website, we also launched the YourVersion iPhone App. Selected as one of the top start-ups from a pool of over 1,000 applicants, we showcased our new product in the TechCrunch50 DemoPit to over 1,500 people.

Although the Web offers an increasing wealth of information, consumers do not yet have a good solution for discovering new, personally relevant content on an ongoing basis. Search engines help users with one-off searches but are not optimized for recurring real-time discovery on a particular topic. Existing alternatives for discovery do not provide a good user experience because they suffer from information overload and do not allow enough personalization.

YourVersion is more personalized, easier to use, and provides more relevant results with less user effort. As one YourVersion user commented after using the product, “I didn’t really understand the difference between discovery and search, but now I do, and it’s powerful.”

YourVersion CEO Dan Olsen noted, “Twitter has made everyone aware of the power of real-time. Beyond real-time communication, real-time discovery also represents a large market opportunity. As users increasingly face information overload on the Web, demand for products like YourVersion that filter and prioritize information in a personalized way will skyrocket. YourVersion’s unique approach to combining real-time, relevance, discovery, and personalization make it the leader in the emerging real-time discovery space.”

YourVersion’s discovery engine is better than other products because it:
• allows the highest degree of content personalization with the freedom to type in any interest
• combines relevance with recency to deliver the best results tailored for the user
• aggregates content across News, Blogs, Twitter, Webpages, Videos, and Products
• has an innovative, easy-to-use user interface for users to browse recommended content
• integrates bookmarking and sharing via email, Facebook, and Twitter
• delivers increasingly better results as more people use it by harnessing collective intelligence
• offers an iPhone App and a mobile website to view recommended content on the go
• provides a Firefox toolbar that simplifies sharing and bookmarking as users browse the web
