Asia’s Top 50 Apps at Accelerate 2010: The top 10
Pitched as a real-time, cross-border social market place, Flutterscape lets users not only share cool product discoveries from Japan but also enables purchases from abroad. The way it works is that Japan-based users can sell an item discovered locally on Flutterscape by submitting pictures, the price, a description etc. People outside Japan can then buy it on the site (i.e. this karaoke machine). The seller purchases the item for the buyer at the local store, sends it to the Flutterscape logistics center, which ships it to the customer and also takes care of the billing and payment.
Zopim is a web-based live chat application for businesses that shows up as a customizable chat widget on your website (no pop-ups). The main selling point of the service is its simplicity, as copying and pasting a few lines of code into the website is enough. Zopim features multi-agent-chat, multi-language and multi-platform support (for all browsers, various IM clients and smartphones). A core element is the Zopim dashboard, from where you can chat with multiple customers, monitor them live as they surf (location, repeat visitors, history, etc.) and analyze browsing patterns.
CEO Aria Rajasa isn’t a big fan of the comparison, but I’ll make it anyway: Gantibaju is basically Indonesia’s hyper-localized answer to t-shirt design service Threadless. The main idea is to empower local designers to get in touch with Indonesian customers who can buy selected t-shirts directly through the site. Rajasa says Gantibaju currently receives close to 1,000 design ideas monthly. More info on this startup can be found here.
Sekai Camera (Japan)
TechCrunch50 superstar Tonchidot has made it to the Accelerate Top 10 with Sekai Camera, its free augmented reality application. Sekai Camera has gone a long way since 2008, and is now available for iPhone, Android, iPad, and on the web. Tonchidot also introduced an API (dubbed OpenAir) and just launched its app platform that makes it possible to deploy augmented reality-powered social games and other apps within the Sekai Camera ecosystem. More info on Sekai Camera can be found in my previous blog post.

With around 40 million users, mig33 is one of the biggest mobile social networks in Asia (even though it’s available globally, it’s particularly strong in India and Indonesia).

TwitCasting Live (Japan)
If you ever wanted to stream live video and tweet about it at the same time, then TwitCasting is the right app for you. As its name suggests, the free iPhone app (main app/Viewer) is tightly integrated into Twitter. It splits the phone screen in half: on the top, you broadcast live video. On the bottom half, you can post updates to Twitter, view your timeline or access other websites.
Every time you start a recording, you can send out an automatic tweet to your followers who just need to click on a link to start viewing the broadcast on their PC (TwitCasting’s website), the iPhone or iPad. We covered TwitCasting in March.
ShowNearby is a location-based listings app that runs on the iPhone, Blackberry, Android, and the web. Currently available for Singapore only, the app displays the nearest places of interest, for example ATMs, restaurants, convenience stores etc.
Stictok (South Korea)
Stictok is a Facebook app that lets you find new friends based on virtual stickers that contain profiles your existing friends have created. Stictok compares the interests users listed up in these stickers and makes recommendations to befriend other users based on that. The company behind the app, Seoul-based moglue, is currently working on a great-looking interactive ebook building platform called “Active StoryTeller”.
