OnSwipe, The App Alternative, Just Opened Its Public Beta To Anyone With A Blog


OnSwipe, a breakout TechStars NYC company, is helping publishers side-step Apple and create app-like mobile experiences, developer-free.

Today at 2 PM, it is opening its beta to anyone with a blog. “We’ve had interest from tens of thousands of publishers asking when they’ll be able to use OnSwipe,” says Jason Baptiste, the startup’s founder and CEO.

His goal is to have an audience of 1 million+ readers across the mobile publisher network by the end of the summer.

OnSwipe launched last month with partners such as Hearst and The Wall Street Journal. It closed a $5 million Series A from Yuri Milner, Lerer Ventures, Betaworks, and SV Angel.
