  23. 23. What The Experts Say<br />“….why is Aloqa important? Because they are building a platform for mobile phones around your location and it shows you favorite hotspots, friends, events, and recommended bargains nearby. But it’s the platform part of this that has me interested so companies can add their own apps in easily which makes this different than, say, Yelp..”<br /> - Robert Scoble (<br />“…the fact that some &quot;no-name&quot; apps beat out brands such as Aloqa beating Yelp on Android suggests that a compelling or engaging app can drive adoption without substantial brand equity or recognition…”<br /><ul><li> Greg Sterling (</li></ul>“… Aloqa automatically displays local listings of your favorite types of restaurants, movies, concerts, shopping, and other points of interest wherever you go. Aloqa is a really cool app that actually works with the iPhone, some Blackberry, Nokia, and Sony Ericsson phones in addition to Android. It’s a cinch to use, and you can customize listings so it shows only the categories you like…”<br /> - Consumer Reports (<br />14<br />Aloqa Confidential and Proprietary<br />
