Ex-MapQuest executive's new startup launches app

Closely founder and CEO Perry Evans, formerly of MapQuest, is pictured in his office in Denver on Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2012, as software developers work on his latest software "Perch." The new smartphone app is letting small business owners quickly scan competitors’ Facebook and Twitter updates, Yelp reviews and ratings, and online deals, without necessarily having to “like” or “follow” their competitors online. The Denver-based startup Closely officially launched its Perch app Wednesday. (AP Photo/Ed Andrieski)
