FunMobility Launches MyShowTM — Industry’s First User-Generated Mobile Slideshow Application
LAS VEGAS, NV–( EMWNews – March 31, 2008) – Live from the largest wireless show in the
world, CTIA WIRELESS 2008, FunMobility announced the launch of MyShow™
— the industry’s first user-generated mobile slideshow publishing
“MyShow transforms every mobile user into a social media publisher with a
few easy clicks,” said FunMobility CEO Adam Lavine. “MyShow reinforces
FunMobility’s leadership in the mobile user-generated content space,
letting people share their lives anytime, anywhere.”
According to M:Metrics, the two major barriers to camera phone use are
difficulties in “getting pictures off the camera phone” and cost. With more
carriers introducing flat-rate pricing plans, and handsets with richer
capabilities, mobile data usage depends on the end user experience, and
rich-media publishing applications like MyShow.
“MyShow is about expressing yourself wherever you are. As a new father, I
can use MyShow to share my baby’s first steps instantly with my family all
over the world. I can assemble a slideshow from my phone with mobile
photos, send it to my family, and embed it into my favorite social networks
on the web using a widget. MyShow is a seamless bridge between the web and
mobile worlds where we live in today,” said Skot Leach, FunMobility’s Vice
President of Products.
MyShow provides end-to-end integration between the mobile device and the
web, allowing users to browse, create, and share their social “life stream”
from anywhere, at any time. MyShow includes the ability to automatically
compose slideshows around pictures stored in camera phones. Mobile users
can also personalize their slideshows with text and background music. With
the MyShow companion website, users can upload photos to create slideshows
right from their computer. Web users can embed the companion MyShow widget
and broadcast their slideshows on their favorite social networks such as
Facebook or MySpace. Users can also rate and comment on slideshows created
by other users.
MyShow on mobile and web is scheduled to debut on the first U.S. carrier by
April 30, 2008.
