Maply is a crowdsourced mobile map app for finding and sharing what’s happening nearby. It was created by four University of Missouri undergraduates and was awarded the Technical Merit Award at the 2015–2016 annual RJI student competition.
Since that time, the Maply team was selected for the Startup Spotlight at SXSW 2017, has expanded its coverage to more than 20 cities or campuses across the country, and moved its operations to Austin, Texas.
Jeff Orr, co-founder and CEO, recently took time to provide a Maply update here:
