Glassboard 2.0 →

In case you’re not familiar with Glassboard, here’s the deal: what Pair is to the bedroom, and Path is to the rec room, Glassboard is to the board room. (Hence “board” in the name. “Glass” refers to your phone’s screen.)

This is the first explanation of the name that I’ve seen. The name always struck me as invoking exactly the wrong mental connections (glass = open, where GlassBoard’s major selling point = privacy). The new app UI seems quite nice from my initial exploration – very Path/Facebook/Sparrow-inspired.
