April Product Recap: What’s New and What’s in the Works

 

April’s big news was the announcement of our first Republic Labs project: Maestro. It’s all about being righteous with our members.  Simply put, we’re going to allow you to pay for the cellular data you use and get paid back for data you don’t use.  And that’s only the start…we’ve got other announced lab projects right behind Maestro, each bringing awesome new features to your Republic experience.  That’s a ton of great new stuff and it’s not the end.  Read on below to get updates on other features and services that are in development.
