A fun app that innovatively adds a social gaming element to mobile photos and videos.
Sunnyvale, CA & New York, NY (PRWEB) May 24, 2011
Phonezoo Communications, Inc. today announced the biggest and most important release yet of Streamzoo – their fast rising application for photo/video sharing. This new version of Streamzoo was unveiled at TechCrunch Disrupt, the leading venue for now technology innovations.
Streamzoo v1.3 includes several improvements to the social experience:
- Follow users and #streams to stay updated with real time feeds
- Engage with others through user to user messaging and direct replies
- Revamped user profiles for better content browsing
Competing in the red-hot mobile photo and video sharing space with other apps such as Instagram, Color, and PicPlz, Streamzoo has differentiated itself by focusing on the #hashtag, social networking, and social gaming. Users can compete on weekly and monthly leaderboards by earning points for content and likes received. With #hashtags, content is organized into #streams, making the app not only fun, but useful.
“The app feels neat and easy to use. I really like it actually. Much better than many of the photo and video sharing apps I have tried the past four years,” says Peter From, an early user and Streamzoo fan. Peter is a photography expert and an avid blogger based in Sweden.
“Despite many apps in this space, Streamzoo offers an unique experience unlike any other,” says Mike Vu, Sr. Product Manager and Designer, “We have built a fun app that innovatively adds a social gaming element to mobile photos and videos.”
This is the first mobile app from Phonezoo Communications Inc., a Silicon Valley startup funded by Tim Draper and several other investors.
This unique application is cross platform, available on iPhone running iOS4 or above and Android running 2.1 and above. Streamzoo is also available on the web at http://www.streamzoo.com.
