Period of involvement: 2010 - 2011
When "Fweebi!" climbed to the top of the Greek iTunes charts in 2011 and stayed there for a week, it was a clear signal that small indie startups had arrived in a big way in Greece. While its functionality was limited in some ways, the app turned its native look and feel into an advantage, giving users lightning-quick access to coupons and offers that they themselves would be interested it, and not pushing it on them like spam. Turns out people were very interested in learning about offers, if you serve them up the right way.
