Shozu iPhone Apps

September 1, 2008 by admin · Leave a Comment 

LONDON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — ShoZu today announced a new edition of its free social media aggregator for iPhone and iPod touch, available immediately on the Apple App Store. This enhanced version further simplifies photo uploading, blogging and other mobile interaction with more than 50 Web 2.0 sites such as Facebook, Flickr, Google Blogger, Picasa Web Albums and Twitter.

Enhancements include the ability to take and upload high-resolution pictures from within the application, add geo-tags to any photo if desired, make text-only posts to blogging sites, and use ShoZu in five languages. ShoZu has also added new reliability features to ensure smoother photo uploads, easier addition of new Internet destinations, and faster application speed overall.

“This new release extends our mobile social media gateway to iPhone users in four new languages and adds some of the top feature requests we have received since our iPhone edition was launched,” said Mark Bole, ShoZu CEO. “Now it’s easier than ever to communicate with your favourite online communities, blogs and social networks from the iPhone or iPod touch, whether you’re uploading photos, blogging or using other social media features to keep up with your online social life on the go.”

The core ShoZu application for iPhone enables users to quickly and easily upload any photo captured with the device’s built-in camera or saved to the iPhone photo library to their choice of over 50 online communities from a single interface, eliminating the need to navigate to each site separately or manage a different iPhone application for each service. Pictures can be transmitted to any number of supported sites simultaneously with a tap, saving time by eliminating multiple consecutive uploads.

In addition, on many leading sites, ShoZu allows users to change their social network status, have friends’ photostreams and status changes sent to the iPhone, and read and reply to comments posted on their content — all from the ShoZu application.

The newest edition adds key capabilities and improvements including:

* Text-only posts to blogging sites from Google Blogger to Vox, Wordpress, Typepad and more. Photo blog uploads are still supported.
* Geo-tagging for any photo upload, allowing photos to automatically appear on maps in sites like Flickr and Picasa Web Albums. Users can now add geo-tags - even when using non-GPS iPhone/iPod touch devices - simply by tapping “Add geo-tag for current location” on the same ShoZu screen where they add titles, descriptions and tags.
* High-resolution (1600×1200) photo capture and upload, for users who want crisper images than the 640×480 resolution provided from the iPhone album. High-res photos can now be taken and uploaded directly from within the ShoZu application.
* Faster startup and new ease-of-use features, including an easy way to tell how many photos are still waiting to upload.
* Easier retrieval of new content feeds, including friends’ Flickr or Facebook photostreams, Facebook status updates, Facebook event listings, and more.
* Automatic time stamps by time zone, including Daylight Savings Time where applicable.
* Localized versions in French, German, Italian and Spanish, in addition to the original English-only release.

ShoZu for iPhone is available as a free download from Apple’s App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/

10 Million Downloads from iPhone 3g App Store

July 12, 2008 by admin · Leave a Comment 

Apple today announced that iPhone™ and iPod touch users have already downloaded more than 10 million applications from its groundbreaking new App Store since its launch late last week. Developers have created a wide array of innovative mobile applications ranging from games to location-based social networking to medical applications to enterprise productivity tools. Users can wirelessly download applications directly onto their iPhone or iPod touch and start using them immediately. More than 800 native applications are now available on the App Store, with more than 200 offered for free and more than 90 percent priced at less than $10.

“The App Store is a grand slam, with a staggering 10 million applications downloaded in just three days,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “Developers have created some extraordinary applications, and the App Store can wirelessly deliver them to every iPhone and iPod touch user instantly.”

Many of these amazing new applications take advantage of iPhone’s large display, Multi-Touch™ user interface, fast hardware-accelerated 3D graphics, built-in accelerometer and location-based technology to bring far more powerful applications to the mobile arena than ever before.

The App Store on iPhone works over cellular networks and Wi-Fi, which means it is accessible from just about anywhere, so users can purchase and download applications wirelessly and start using them instantly. Applications are free or charged to the user’s iTunes account and the App Store notifies the user when updates are available for their apps. The App Store is also available in iTunes (www.itunes.com) running on a Mac or PC, which syncs applications to the iPhone or iPod touch using a USB cable.
