Following our interview with location-based mobile company Geodelic, it put out a release today announcing a $3.5 million funding round and an app for the upcoming HTC MyTouch 3G (a.k.a. “G2”). The funding, led by Clearstone and Shasta Ventures, appears to be the public disclosure of an earlier round.
The app, customized for the G2, will be known as “Sherpa” and will have many of the features we profiled in last week’s post. Covering the news today, TechCrunch echoed our sentiments that the application’s passive or automatic features will minimize typing, and boost its appeal and market penetration.
