Blaast is for the next billion people to come online. Believing that these people will mainly log on through their mobile phones, this app is designed to make mobile online usage much more user-friendly and efficient. In order to enhance the experience, Blaast attempts to create a faster, smoother overall online experience on mobile phones.

Through a series of unique distribution partnerships, Blaast is working together with mobile network operators. In effect, this creates a unique subscription based app store offering, one which offers developers recurring revenues in addition to huge subscriber bases.

Blaast is funded by the founding engineers of Skype, Veturi Venture Accelerator and top European and Asian angels. Even in stealth-mode Blaast has garnered significant interest across the globe with articles published on GigaOM, The New York Times and Arctic Startup amongst others.
