The Award Winning Community Based SMS Service hiogi Brings a Human Touch to Mobile Search


hiogi is the world´s first web 2.0 knowledge community that answers any mobile ad hoc question for free. After entering the German market in March 2007 hiogi now launched their English site under www.hiogi.com.The young start up closes the gap between mobile questions and answers on the web. Yesterday the German ISP and Internet Association honored the innovative company with the "eco internet award" for best mobile service.

Berlin, Germany, June 20, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Mobile search has been a hassle in the past with millions of inappropriate search results bothering busy mobile phone users. The only alternative were expensive text-a-question services. Compared to machine-based search algorithms or boring call-center agents hiogi is much more personal. All answers are based on the wisdom of the crowds and the hiogi community will always find the right answer – whether it is the hottest insider tip or simply the best personal advice.

Bjoern Behrendt, hiogis CEO said, “People will increasingly use their mobile phones as a source of information. However they want quick and precise answers and appreciate the help and advice of others - without having to surf through thousands of search results or forum posts on the internet. “

Questions can be sent for free by any registered hiogi member using Twitter SMS (Send d hiogi YourQuestion to +44 7624801423), mobile.hiogi.com, iphone.hiogi.com or by sending an email with a PDA to ask@hiogi.com including the mobile phone number and the question in the subject line. Two hiogis will immediately grab the question and will look for an answer during an exciting 8 minute battle. A third hiogi will confirm the best answer, which will be sent back to the questioner within minutes. The questioner can even give instant feedback to the answerer of the last question while still traveling by texting d hiogi + ~ or - and a comment back to the twitter number. Depending on the difficulty of the question the hiogis will gain 2 to 5 ogi-coins for a good answer, with every ogi-coin improving the personal ranking and resembling one more chance of winning exciting prices at the end of the months.
