Perfect for sharing ideas and making plans, this new group messenger enables users to propose expiring invitations. Based in San Francisco, startup Bobber is a "collaborative social planning application" that will become available to beta testers soon.

The Bobber app allows users to connect faster and easier over every day plans. Instead of posing questions in existing group chats where the details could be easily lost, the group messenger lets users post invitations that will disappear after 48 hours. It also helps friends make their plans a reality, with a goal of solving the issue of "not being able to connect with those who are available right now." This will come in especially handy for people who are sick of flakiness and ready to put plans into action.
