One of the biggest apps creating buzz around the Silicon Valley is the private mobile social network for couples, called Pair, which has secured funding from SV Angel and David Morin, founder of Path.  But Pair could very well be a clone or copy of South Korean app, Between, which launched in February 2011 and before Pair.

At the GMIC GStartup Pitch Competition, Between won the 2nd prize at the Early Stage group of start-ups.

The five founders of Between started working together in June 2008 and met at Seoul National University, one of Korea’s top universities. The team worked on many different products, including eBooks, but finally pivoted to Between in June last year. Now armed with US$1 Million in seed funding from Southbank and a team of 15, Between is ready to go global.
