Pumba is this amazing new way of calling people. We have figured our a way to add contacts to your iPhone home screen like an application. You can then tap on a contact icon to give your friend a call.
This new piece of technology allows you to have beautiful looking thumbnails on your iPhone home screen. You don't have to reduce you near and dear ones to a name on a list. They can have a special place on you iPhone home screen. Calling them now is just a tap away.

The project during the stealth development mode was called Pumba and every body really liked it so it stuck. You can also check out our learning around naming a product.
Shubham Goel is a hard core products guy. He has a B.Tech and Masters degree in Mechanical Engineering from IIT Kanpur, India. For his thesis he worked with General Motors on optimizing the steering system. He has worked on India’s first Nano satellite JUGNU and also helped develop a gadget for the Indian railways.

He pretends to be a master photographer and skater by carrying around the respective equipments.
I just felt inspired by all the amazing things that were happening in this space and wanted to be a part of it. Nothing less, nothing more.
