CTIA: Whrrl is spinning

SAN FRANCISCO — I just ran into Jeff Holden, the co-founder of Pelago, which launched its new mobile application today called Whrrl.

The service allows you and your friends to share information on your favorite restaurants. I wrote about the company in this story.

By the way, I mentioned the company in Monday’s story as one of those attending CTIA. Turns out there is another company based in Washington (in Gig Harbor) called Perlego, not to be confused by Pelago. It is here, too.

Here are a couple of screenshots of the Whrrl service that went live today.

This is what the homescreen looks like on the mobile phone:
