TWiST 565: Ahryun Moon, founder of EtchApp & the return of “Ask Jason”!

Hi everyone,

Producer Jacqui here. A special two-parter for you. First up is Ahryun Moon, founder of EtchApp, a company that crushed the LAUNCH Hackathon and went onto product success, with their recent launch — and feature — in the Apple store. EtchApp is a multi-tasking replacement keyboard for devices so you can send messages and access services without switching — and just might be, as Jason predicts, THE killer Watch app. And it’s the return of #AskJason! Fans toss questions on a range of topics … from the Jobs Act to new avenues for startups to raise money, to why half of a college marketing class just doesn’t like Jason. Brace yourselves!
