Personal Sharing Reinvented

Sharing is broken today. To share today, we have to get our friends to join some social network, share according to the rules of that network, while giving up ownership of our data. Why can’t we just share anything we want with any group of friends, directly from our phones to theirs, without worrying about creepy ads? Omlet is an open platform, being rolled out on mobile devices, that makes personal sharing simple, pure, and easy.
