What is the history and popularity of the app?

Sell Simply was founded by Chris Teso in May of 2010. The team is still small but the site has grown to include many unique items offered up for sale by the user community. The creators wanted to build a website that allows users to quickly and easily offer up almost anything for sale online. The result is one of the simplest online marketplaces available. Users can post new items using their Twitter accounts and receive notifications when items they are searching for become available.
