An iOS version of Thread will launch early this summer, in either May or June, the company said. Though the app is free, the company hopes to generate revenue through customized dashboard panels and premium feature upgrades.

Sprezzat is looking to incorporate other social networks into the app such as LinkedIn, Instagram, Evernote, Spotify and Pinterest, and also link it to a user's Google Calendar, so the app could deliver alerts before events in a fashion similar to Google Now's personal assistant tool.

The company is currently promoting the app at South by Southwest Interactive in Austin, Texas.
