Wirkle is working in building a social networking tool for the mobile phone user community. The company has been around since more than two years & has Varun Khurana (IIT Delhi), Sunil Goyal (IIT Delhi) & Lomesh Dutta (Delhi College of Engineering) as the principal founding members. Headquartered in Santa Clara, CA, Wirkle has a small (around 20 at the time of writing this) but smart team of engineers right here in Gurgaon.

LinkNSurf (http://www.linknsurf.com) is Wirkle’s flagship product. Currently in beta, it allows the user to share & track blogs, photos & other useful content right on the mobile phone. The idea here is very simple – Wirkle’s server gets content (blogs, photos, emails etc) from sources on the web through a variety of protocols & then transform this information into a format that is suitable for viewing on the mobile phone. The application is ready to be tried on a variety of phones. You can find out more about this service on the FAQ page of the service.

Besides LinkNSurf, Wirkle also offers software development services to its clients. Having used J2EE as the platform for LinkNSurf, their areas of strength in technology include Client/Server core java development & J2ME. More elaborate list of Technologies that Wirkle’s team has experience on can be found here.
