In his talk at Mobile Monday Berlin, Aloqa’s co-founder Johannes Martens shares his experience on what went wrong in the last ten years of LBS: „From a technical perspective it’s location pull vs. push; local search vs. discovery. We’re trying to end up with real serendipity discovering things we would have never thought about. Instead of static content we want dynamic content, simply because life is dynamic.“ Aloqa’s cross-platform application has an open API and is for free! The service provides context-specific recommendations with dynamic data based on a channel concept – users can create the channels they like. And by the way, the Munich-based startup is still looking for content partners and publishers interested in publishing their content in Aloqa’s system...

Starting today, Tiburon-TV will be publishing a new Monday series „The Top 5“. We picked the five most promising German Startups to kick off this new weekly series: Plista, barcoo, Twidox, Yoose and hiogi. Berlin-based startup plista.com, co-founded by Dominik Matyka, offers a personalized Internet user-experience and helps you discover new relevant content. It works on every channel as well as cross-domain as an item independent browser extension. Plista’s CIO Andreas Richter presented the startup at the Plugg Conference’s Startups Rally. Another startup from Germany’s dynamic capital city is barcoo.com, co-founded by Benjamin Thym. Barcoo’s mission is to offer transparency to consumers during shopping: The product’s 1D-barcode can be scanned with the barcoo application on one’s mobile and the consumer gets test ratings, local price comparisons and recommendations as well as ecological information on the scanned product. Wiesbaden-based startup twidox.com is a free online library of documents that allows users and organizations to upload, share and manage their documents with direct access to any documents that can be found. The company focuses on large organizations within the European market and cooperates with Amazon, the United Nations and Creative Commons. Twidox has won third place of the best start-ups at this year’s Nonick conference in Bilbao and has been selected for the elevator pitch at next09. Yoose.com will be launching very soon its mobile coupon platform in Berlin with a very localized offering for Berlin-based retailers. „As soon as we have the first returns out of that launch, then we’ll take it quickly to other German cities and later on we’ll go international“, says founder and CEO Christian Geissendoerfer and adds „we’ll look into Asian countries since they are very open to new technology.“ The German startup teamed up with Aloqa and presented its service at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February. Question & answer portal hiogi.com offers high-quality mobile answers for all mobile questions. All questions via the mobile portals or wireless email are free. To learn more about the startup, please watch hiogi's pitch from Le Mobile 2.0 as well as a mini video with hiogi’s co-founder and CEO Björn Behrendt. Please note that in next Monday's "The Top 5" we will be presenting "The 5 Most Promising Swiss Startups"
