Belysio makes a splash in the media

September 9, 2008

Belysio is making a big splash this week. In our home country Poland we’re the talk of the day after some great newspaper articles, tv and radio broadcasts. This morning we were featured in a breakfast show on national television. A few throusand people registered afterwards (sorry to all people that suffered from a slower website as a consequence).

Recently, we’ve also scored a few beautiful reviews. The blurbs we liked most are:

The site integrates the best of social networking with modern cellular technology to make it possible for you to have an all inclusive experience. […] It takes social networking to whole new levels.

(Killer Startups)

[…] An avant-garde social mapping service that changes the way people use mobile phones to stay in touch with their friends. Belysio de-virtualizes social networking between friends and allows life encounter of people in the real world.


It gives your mobile phone a smart address book, multi-messaging, e-mail and the location awareness all combined.

(MoMB – Museum of Modern Betas)

[…] A simple concept but […] powerful social networking experiences […].


Man hat also nicht 10 oder mehr Clients downzuloaden und muss alle einzeln Bedienen respektive Nutzen. Belysio kombiniert das ganze zu einem. […] Habe den Client downgeloadet. Einfache Installation – hat alles reibungslos funktioniert.

[Translation: So you don’t have to download 10 or more clients anymore, and you don’t have to handle them all anymore to make use of them. Belysio combines it all in one. […] I have downloaded the client. Simple installation – it all worked flawlessly.]

(Mobile Moblog)

[…] Die Applikation für das Handy [kommt] mit einer äußert schicken und leicht zu bedienenden Oberfläche daher. […] Die Standortanalyse über meinen Provider war überraschend genau. […] Belysios Ansatz einer mobilen, integrierten Kommunikationszentrale mit Statusupdates und ortsabhängiger Komponente ist gut. Die mobile Applikation macht einen vielversprechenden und stabilen Eindruck und bietet angesichts geringer Trafficansprüche auch für Benutzer ohne Datenflatrate zahlreiche Anwendungsszenarien.

[Translation: The mobile application comes with an extremely chic and light interface. […] The location analysis was suprisingly precise. […] Belysio’s approach of an integrated communications exchange with status updates is all right. The mobile application makes a promising and stabile impression, and – taking the light traffic requirements in consideration – it obviously offers numerous usage scenarios for people who don’t have a bundle with a flat data rate.]


And, if you read German, don’t miss the excellent interview that Mobile Zeitgeist‘s Heike Scholz had with Belysio co-founder Andreas Bauer!
