5 Startups That Will Rock In 2012 by Jerry Rizzo


Phone Deck

Probably my most anticipated startup.  This mobile app brings your phone to your desktop.  With this app you’ll be able to make calls with just one click, send and receive SMS, organize your contacts, analyze your phone usage and even locate you phone when it slips into the couch cushions.  Sign up for the beta here http://phonedeck.com/.

Tour Wrist

Touring property’s, travel destinations, sporting venues and vehicles has never been so easy. With a simple point of your phone and you can give a grand tour.  Check out travel destinations one minute, hotels and restaurants the next, or even look inside new homes.  With 360 degree viewing technology this app is breakthrough for business owners and marketers.  Check it out and download Tour Wrist today at http://tourwrist.com/



This photo driven navigation app aims to make getting around on foot a cinch.  It’s pimary features include  photo navigation, turn by turn directions and full maps.  Each direction accompanies a photo, so you can be assured you are in the right place at the right time. You can demo the app at http://lumatic.com  (Limited to San Fran and NYC)


I gave this mobile app praise earlier in the month and I’ll gladly do it again.  This comprehensive university campus guide is going to save freshman lives and keep the student body on point.  While OneSchool’s supported schools are limited, expect this startup to rock and roll in 2012.
