New York (PRWEB) September 20, 2012
Moment.me, a company that offers the most complete and personalized view of an experience in real time, today launched its mobile app in the Apple App Store and opened its web platform in public BETA at http://www.moment.me. Moment.me allows users to discover and contribute to an ever-evolving collection of other people’s photos, videos and tweets from mutually shared experiences.
Moment.me helps users save time and effort from manually organizing photos, videos and tweets, while providing them with the flexibility and convenience to use their favorite social networks to share their experiences. Moment.me’s proprietary smart-matching technology aggregates and associates photos, videos and tweets from various social networks and automatically organizes them according to Moments – i.e., specific events or experiences. Users can then easily discover and contribute to these Moments via the web platform or mobile app. Unique to the mobile app is a location-based mechanism that allows users to discover and contribute to Moments emerging around them in real time.
In conjunction with the mobile app launch, Moment.me will partner with SingTel, title sponsor of the 2012 Formula 1™ Singapore Grand Prix to present its first real-time moments on large screens at the Paddock Suite. These Moments illustrate how brands all over the globe can leverage this platform as an effective marketing tool to capture various points-of-view and showcase the experience as it happens to friends around the world.
“People want to see more points-of-view from their experiences and love to share because in essence, we’re social creatures,” said Ronny Elkayam, CEO and Co-Founder of Moment.me. “When we share photos, what we really intend to share are experiences, but traditional photo sharing only captures one piece of a larger puzzle. Moment.me’s mission is to enhance shared experiences with context, social connection and real-time viewing to become a window to the world’s trending moments.”
Added Mr. Elkayam, “The mobile app will transform the way people experience popular events all over the world like the Singtel Formula 1™ Singapore Grand Prix, as well as concerts, parties and political rallies by providing simultaneous multiple perspectives of the dozens, hundreds and even thousands of others in the crowd who are tweeting, taking pictures and shooting videos. It will also allow users to find personally relevant, interesting and trending moments materializing nearby, bringing an element of social discovery to the app and a new way for marketers to connect with fans and followers.”
“At Singtel, we have a constant finger on the pulse of emerging consumer technologies and understand how mobile broadband, smart phones and tablets continue to transform the way people connect with each other and the world around them,” said Mr. Loo Cheng Chuan, Head of Local L!fe, Group Digital L!fe at SingTel. “We are interested in finding a platform that could automatically fetch, match and present multiple points-of-view of this exciting event in real time. Our partnership with Moment.me will provide Formula 1™ enthusiasts a new way to view the experience that was never possible before.”
Anyone with a valid Facebook, Google+ or Twitter account can join Moment.me at http://www.moment.me and download the mobile app for free in the Apple App Store. Users can continue to use their favorite photo-sharing platforms including Facebook, Instagram, Picasa, Flickr and Google+ and share their moments through their social networks or email.
Launched in 2012, Moment.me offers the most complete and personalized view of an experience in real time. The company’s smart-matching technology, called HintMachine, is the only tool that collects multiple points of view from different people and platforms and turns out of context digital assets into meaningful moments. Moment.me’s mission is to bring together a complete set of digitally captured moments including photos, videos and tweets that make up an experience and present them in an ever-evolving collection.
