The annual month of mustaches has a new mobile twist this year -- an app, Movember Mobile, that lets you track your growth progress. The app is connected to Mo Space, the Movember social network, which serves as a hub for raising funds and connecting wither other Movember participants.
A sweet new feature of the app this year is that if you document your growth using the Mo Tracker, you can export a time-lapse image or GIF once your 'stache is complete. You can share your facial hair masterpiece on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or LinkedIn, or with your followers within Mo Space, called Mo Bros and Sistas.
