What? Thimble is a one-of-a-kind app on the iTunes Store that will directly help and bring the community together in a member’s time of need.
Thimble can be used for lost or stolen items, from power tools and bikes to missing pets and even people. This app helps users recover their lost and/or stolen items and is a tool for users who have found something and want to find the rightful owner.
Within the app the user can create a post, share posts via their social media, look at the map view to see crime hotspots, see rewards offered and instantly message other users.
But the best thing about the app is the algorithm that will search Gumtree and Trading Post for your item, and alert you if it thinks it's found a suitable match.
Who? The app is owned by SixtyOneSixty Apps Pty Ltd, which was founded by Ryan Spencer.
The company’s tech team includes app developer Stuart Kidd.
Quotation? “I wanted to design a platform to help the community recover their lost and stolen items,” Ryan Spencer said.
Thimble launched in December 2016 and is ranked #8 in BNiQ Startups List.
