One of Europe’s most innovative LBS start-ups and winner of the Navteq LBS challenge 2009 is Hamburg-based skobbler. At Mobile Monday Berlin, co-founder Philipp Kandal introduced skobbler’s lifestyle navigation software for mobile phones: „Skobbler combines an Internet community with a free mobile phone navigation system. We’re offering the total package of LBS: After checking out what is going on around you now and choosing your location, skobbler guides you there via vehicle or pedestrian navigation.“
Skobbler works both with targeted local search advertisement and couponing. The startup results from a management buy-out of Europe’s no.1 PND provider Navigon and has now more than 25.000 registered users.
Stay tuned - there’s a lot more to come from Mobile Monday Berlin!
