Work on the app was begun in 2015 by Goode and his West Virginia College buddies, Jonathan Ohliger, who heads the venture, and former Mountaineers linebacker Grant Wiley. Goode described how his app VEEPIO can help users purchase products and find information on people or places.
“Veepio is a mobile technology that is easily integrated by any IOS, any android system that currently stands in the store right now,” he told FOX Business’ Stuart Varney on “Varney & Co. “You can do anything, you can look up information. If you see something you are unfamiliar with, you can click on it, you can find out anything about it.”
Goode played college football at West Virginia University with Wiley and graduated with a degree in industrial engineering. The app gives users the ability to purchase items with a single touch.
“It makes any media interactive. … If you see something in public and it has our technology capabilities, you can click on it with a picture and a video,” Goode said. “So if you’re watching a highlight of the Super Bowl and you’re watching your favorite play … you can click on a jersey and you can buy it right then and there.”
