EP:020 – The Cotton Club Podcast

This past week Keith Crawford, Luke Irvin, and I sat down with the CEO of Footfeed, Dennis Mink to discuss their brilliant iphone application. Footfeed is a new mobile geo location check-in aggregator network that brings together many web services so users can checkin to many networks simultaneously. Built from the ground up as a stand alone check-in service, Footfeed integrates APIs from Brightkite, Foursquare, Gowalla, Facebook (and soon Twitter, Google Latitude and Whrrl).

Footfeed features an advanced location matching algorithm that matches locations across different services so that users can check-in to multiple services with one click. Using the Footfeed mobile check-in app, users can have their location matched across the different networks connected to their account and check-in to all networks simultaneously. Footfeed also offers an API to developers and companies interested in adding multi check-in capabilities to their apps.

Footfeed was co-founded by Dennis Mink and Benjamin Floering and incorporated in January 2010. Dennis brings 12 years of experience in marketing and product development, having built two successful digital marketing agencies in Los Angeles. Ben Floering, who worked with IBM and AMD, is a senior software engineer and core code contributor to the Rails code base. In addition, Val Ornoy, a serial entrepreneur who most recently led business development in location-based services for Motorola, and a 14 year veteran in the mobile and tech space, heads up business development.

Have you tried Footfeed yet? If so, what are your thoughts??
