10 startups to pitch at Indonesia Satellite – interesting list


So what do Gowalla, Foursquare, Yelp and Facebook Place have in common? They have an Achilles heel, internet connection. Without any internet connection, users of these check-in services will be left stranded. In comes Wooz.in with a low-tech solution, RFID. The Social Media extension integrates with radio-frequency, allowing users to create automatic status updates on Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and Gowalla by only tapping the RFID chip. The physical check-in method of Wooz.in???s product provides merchants with greater marketing powers.

The Indonesian list is more exciting than their SG list. The only stand-out in the SG list is Piclyf (love our own).

Wooz.in interest me most of the list for trying to make check-ins easier. But on the other side, you first need to have their RFID device. But I guess that gives them the extra point for taking an extra effort of providing RFID devices.
