Zipipop Wins Start-up Competition at Mobile 2.0 Europe

Zipipop, a Helsinki-based startup, has just won an important competition at the Mobile 2.0 Europe event in Barcelona for its newly launched Zipiko service. The competition was for the best Early Stage Start-up; and the prize was an invitation to present at the next Mobile 2.0 event on 3 November in San Francisco – the home of Mobile 2.0.

Zipiko is a quick and effortless way to see what your friends are planning to do. You can also invite them to join you: whether it’s a local cafe, your own place for drinks, lunch or whatever you fancy – even just to hang out wherever, whenever.

The main page shows your friends plans and intentions for the near future and you can join them in just a few clicks.

Usability is a key ingredient of Zipipop's success and the winning simplicity of the Zipiko's interface was the result of extensive paper-prototyping and lessons-learned from the development of a Facebook application called 'Going for One?'.

Zipiko unites various aspects of Twitter, Meetup and SMS to create a simple way to organize spontaneous get-togethers.
