TriOut launched in late 2009 as a mobile app to help people explore their communities. Last year we were approached by NC State University to help create a version of TriOut for use by their community; the students and alumni of NCSU. The NC State app is called OnCampus and launched at the beginning of this school year.
The response has been great. Students love having their own community app and we love working with the university. However, since TriOut is a small bootstrapped company, it’s a pretty big undertaking. We don’t have the resources to keep the TriOut app supported and running.
On December 1st we’ll be shutting down the TriOut application and website so that we can focus on the OnCampus project. I’ll be sharing a tool to export all your check in data and photos in a few weeks. There are plenty of great applications to let you share your check ins and photos; Foursquare and Instagram are our favorites if you haven’t tried them out.
Thanks to all of our friends and supporters for helping us build something great. We wouldn’t have been here without you.
