How was Whakoom born?
A brief history
Many years ago…
It all started when Sergio left his native Madrid to live in Barcelona. He missed going to his friends' houses and gossip about their weekly comic buys, as well as being able to recommend the comics that he was reading. That is why he began to develop his own app that allowed him to keep this experience alive.
Without a lot of money, but with plenty of enthusiasm, Sergio, Silvia and Enrique decided to turn this idea into reality and launch Whakoom, creating a collaborative app that now has more than 100,000 users who have added more than a million comics.
And what name do we give it?
There a lot of great sound effects, but Whakoom is the one used by The Hulk when he hits with both hands to create a sonic boom, and we want to hit hard! It was also one of the few onomatopoeia domain names that weren't already grabbed, so there's that. :)
