Goodbye, TextTheMob!

UIS recently accepted an offer from Poll Everywhere to purchase the assets of TextTheMob and move existing members into their system. Beginning Oct. 12, 2012 TextTheMob users will have a new home at PollEverywhere. This decision was based on our company’s evolving priorities and interests, and the fact that our core business model is heading in a different direction. We have been proud to serve TextTheMob subscribers for the past several years!

As stated in an email sent by Urban Interactive Studio CEO, Chris Haller, to current Text the Mob members today,

It only made sense to put members in what we think are the most experienced and capable hands in the business. We think they’ll be happy with Poll Everywhere’s phenomenal tech support and a ton of great features.

TextTheMob.com was one of Urban Interactive Studio’s first apps, and while we’re excited about the sale, we’re also a bit sentimental to see it go.
