A month after announcing it secured seed funding from a local investor, Kansas City-based prediction startup Knoda today released its first application for the iPhone. Users can make predictions about any future event—the result of an MLB game or the name of a celebrity couple’s baby—in a friendly, competitive environment where other users weigh in on whether it will be right or wrong. Once the event has passed, users vote and through that crowdsourcing Knoda determines who was right, recording it toward a user’s record. “We can’t wait to see people’s predictions and how the community responds,” co-founder Kyle Rogers said in a press release. “We are proud of this first release and look forward to learning from user feedback so we can iterate and improve the product quickly.” — Source: Knoda
