Instead of rather dull funding announcements (dull to write, exciting for startups surely), here is a piece of news that might grab your attention.
Rotten WiFi from Lithuania is an app that helps users report the quality of the WiFi in public places. The app developers created this product to give power back to people, whose complaints about the quality of the WiFi often goes unheard. Now their voices can range from “Unreal!” to “Craptastic!”.
Even if you are stuck with no Internet connection whatsoever, you can still add your feedback and even share it on Foursquare, Facebook, Twitter and other channels once you are back in the civilisation.
Founded by Arturas Jonkus, this app does not seem to have a large market in my opinion. It could display location-specific ads along the line of Croatian Zzzzapp! but only if the WiFi is decent, right?
Customer feedback tools are useful though. For example a couple of years ago German Honestly took the feedback gathering to the hotel industry, where the customer feedback is sought after and is essential for hotel operators themselves to monitor and improve quality of services.
The launch of Rotten WiFi seems timely for the Lithuanian Startup conference Login that starts this Thursday, the 10th of April. We all know the value of a decent WiFi at a conference, but who remember one venue where it actually works?
Rotten WiFi app can be downloaded here.
