Press Release: ShoZu Announces New Custom Edition Client for BlackBerry
ShoZu Ltd., the award-winning social media hub, is poised to enhance social networking on BlackBerry® smartphones with the introduction of a new, highly integrated client, available on BlackBerry App World™.
The new ShoZu client takes the ShoZu service on BlackBerry smartphones to a higher level of functionality – beyond just uploading to multiple social networking sites simultaneously. It provides two-way interactivity with a variety of social networking sites mobile users want to interact with on a daily basis through one easy to use interface.
“It's now easier than ever to communicate with your favourite online communities, blogs and social networks from a number of BlackBerry smartphones," said Shozu Chairman and CEO Chris Wade. "Whether you're uploading photos, blogging or using other social media features to keep up with your online social life, Shozu brings together all the information you are sending and receiving from different sites and allows you to manage it and respond broadly from one application."
The new mobile client provides two-way interactivity with a host of social networking sites on BlackBerry smartphones, including the ability to receive updates from multiple sites to one integrated spot directly on the handset, read and reply to comments in real-time, update status, upload images and video, add tags, titles and descriptions before or after uploading, and much more. The mobile client also offers the ability to edit, add, and remove destination sites to/from a user's account, making it even easier to stay connected.
The ShoZu client is available for free on a trial basis on BlackBerry App World (www.blackberry.com/appworld) and allows users to upload up to five photos or videos and use social networking features such as status updates for an indefinite amount of time. A full version of the client, available for $4.99, offers users unlimited use of photo and video uploads.
The service is initially available on all BlackBerry® Curve™, and BlackBerry® Pearl™ series smartphones, as well as the BlackBerry® Bold™ with support for the BlackBerry® Tour™ and BlackBerry® Storm™ smartphones coming soon. A complete, frequently updated, list of supported handset models is available at www.shozu.com and m.shozu.com.
The ShoZu mobile client is part of the ShoZu social media hub service. The ShoZu social media hub service will remain free for both existing and new users through the recent introduction of new ways to access the ShoZu service, including through picture messaging/(MMS), mobile e-mail, desktop e-mail and ShoZu Desktop, based on the Adobe Air platform, that works on both Macs and Windows PCs.
Sounds promising... I'll give the trial a test... but honestly it sounds like they might get my $4.99
