Want to celebrate a friend's birthday or comfort a friend who is in need? But don't know what to say aside from"Yay!" or "I'm sorry?" Dollop let's you truly show rather than just tell how you are feeling through adding a tangible element to our everyday texts.
Dollop lets you instantly and remotely send a snappy treat through text or email. You select an emoji of a cup of coffee, donut, or beer and that friend can get the real thing! A friend opens up your gift on their phone, and is able to redeem it for a real, tasty treat near them within seconds. They don’t even need to register for an account to enjoy the gift! It’s a great way to treat your friends and show them who really cares about them with just a couple of clicks. Dollop is for the NYC area exclusively with plenty of places to choose from. The idea is to let you choose something you think your friend might like, and have your friend be able to have some flexibility to redeem it for something that they'll love.

I guess that it's all about convenience really, isn't it?
How about if I introduced you to a social organizational app for iOS that is both meaningful and tangible? Not only does Dollop have the pure convenience of sending a text celebrating a friend's birthday but you can also add a more tangible element by including a real gift to go along with it. Just select an emoji - it could be something as simple as a cup of coffee, a cronut or a beer - send it off to your friend and the recipient gets to redeem it on their iPhone for a real live version from a local store. They don't even have to have a Dollop account. Its really as simple as that!
There are so many reasons to send a friend a redeemable Dollop. It doesn't have to be a birthday or because they are sick. It could be because they have done well in an examination or...
