Help us build a smarter phone

Cover is the fastest way to get to the right apps at the right time. TechCrunch named it "One of the Best Apps of 2013."

We think despite being amazing little computers, our smartphones could be smarter, simpler, and more personal. They can learn who we are and adapt to our needs and context. We want to make that happen.

We're building the world's best Android team

We believe in the amazing potential of Android. Quite literally, we couldn’t have built Cover on any other mobile platform. Android’s open nature allows anyone to rethink how a phone should behave, and its thriving ecosystem makes us believe that it will soon become the phone of choice for several billion people. We’re not just an Android-first company — we’re an Android-only company. All of us used to be passionate iPhone users, and we’re humbled by the opportunity to bring an iOS-level of design, polish, and craftsmanship to the world’s biggest mobile platform.
