Pageonce: economic downturn winner?

Pageonce‘s CEO Guy Goldstein was on my WorkFastTV show this morning (the recording will be up on Monday, but I did a separate video with him afterward on Kyte.tv so you can get a sense of what his app does) and while we were talking he was reporting that he’s seeing a ton of usage BECAUSE of the downturn.

What does his app do? It’s an iPhone app (next week they are shipping on Blackberry too) that lets you watch all sorts of personal information. I call it a personal information dashboard.

Stocks. Bank accounts. Travel info. Restaurant info. And more.

You can see when your bills are due, what your account balances are, and more. All from your iPhone (it’s one of the top 10 productivity iPhone applications).

This is a three-month-old startup that shipped on the iPhone and already has 200,000+ users.

Seems to me this app, along with others from Mint and Billpay could be major winners as we pay closer attention to our finances.

What are other examples of apps that you are seeing winning in this economy?

  1. Um, no. Sorry but this ain’t for me.

    Web 2.0 is about to crash Robert. And you want me to centralize ALL my personal information with some unknown 2.0 startup?

    So what happens to all that information when they go under?

  3. The desktop version of Pageonce is considerably older than 3 months. The adaptation for iPhone is only three months old. It is a very useful service, and you only have to set up as much tracking as you want. There is not much danger in having them track your airline miles, for example.

  5. Informaton Cards (www.informationcard.net) offer a more secure, decentralized method for organizing our online “identities.” There is no central database of our information. Information to and from merchants is encrypted. Our information remains on our own computer/device. Worth a look. Parity (www.parity.com) issued a press release last week about “CardPress” that lets web sites create / issue information cards for free.
