With the explosion of smartphones in the last couple of years, the app market has grown significantly. Today you can use an app for anything from streaming your life live through Flixwagon to tweeting and even making dinner reservations. In fact, according to recent findings made by Chetan Sharma Consulting, we should expect to see mobile data revenue to grow up to 22% in 2011 up to $67 billion.
There’s no denying that connected devices are becoming the norm in our everyday lives. That is why we weren’t surprised to find that by 2015, the app market is expected to reach $38 billion.
We’re finding that a great portion of this market is focused on location-based applications. A recent article by Om Malik explains how important the future of geo-location is in making social connections and enhancing the mobile experience for users. Additionally, the ability to share other information such as updates, pictures and video adds to the social experience.
Flixwagon is taking the idea of geo-location one step further by providing users with the ability to live stream recorded videos to their social networks while sharing information about the location of where the video was shot. With the click of a button, users are always “sharing ready” and can broadcast live streaming video to their Twitter followers, Facebook friends, website, blogs and YouTube in real time. The Flixwagon app enhances social sharing through the ability to connect with people on various platforms, even with those who do not have the Flixwagon app. Additionally, enabling the chat feature allows users to speak to those with whom they are broadcasting to.
Mobile apps are changing the way we live our lives and at Flixwagon, we make it possible for anyone, anywhere to visually express and socialize their experiences, interests, and adventures, in video, Live!
