Company Summary

As highlighted in the accompanying demo video, Yosot’s Mobile Engagement Platform overcomes the limitations of small screens, costly data plans, and primitive, cartoony animation to profoundly change the way mobile users interact with each other, with games and other apps on their mobile devices, with the brands they choose to engage with, and with other organizations or causes that they wish to support or advocate.
