JuiceCaster coming to India
Are networking sites Facebook or Orkut banned at your workplace computers?
JuiceCaster to your rescue!
If you have a camera and a Windows enabled phone, you will be able to share your videos from your phone itself.
California-based Juice Wireless is all set to offer Indians this flexibility of publishing multimedia content from their phone to any person, group, Web site, or desktop with the help of JuiceCaster.
JuiceCaster is a mobile phone-based social networking site that allows users to capture, share, and publish content instantly, and maintain rich social networking connections including profiles, friends’ lists and personal status – right from mobile phones.
Right now JuiceCaster is available only in the US.
• Works as a platform that integrates various other social networking sites such as MySpace, Facebook and Orkut
• Offers cross-platform content access
• Automatically connects a mobile phone user’s pictures and videos with these Websites
• Users needn’t wait to get access to a PC to upload self-generated videos
• Import contacts from several top sites and desktop contact management systems such as Microsoft Outlook
To avoid abuse of the service, every upload is put through a manual check. “It takes about 3 minutes on an average for the content to go live from the posted time” revealed Nick Desai, chief executive officer of JuiceCaster.
JuiceCaster also offers an interesting feature called Mobile Video Search (MVS) that enables users to search videos by texting keywords to a short code. The search tool then immediately sends a reply with links to the requested content.
JuiceCaster will be available to Indian users in March through select service providers. The company is also planning to add Hindi language to JuiceCaster, which is expected to happen in the third quarter of 2008.
