Flixwagon Teams with Verizon Wireless to Offer First Android Application Combining Live Mobile Video Sharing with GPS Navigation
Tel Aviv, Israel (May 18, 2011) – Flixwagon, the leading interactive live mobile video broadcast and social networking platform, today announced that the Android version of its ‘Geo-Edition’ namesake application is available for download at the Verizon Wireless V CAST App Store. The Flixwagon ‘Geo Edition’ solution for 3G and 4G Android devices is the first application to combine the power of live mobile video sharing and GPS navigation.
Verizon Wireless customers with Android devices can now stream live video directly from their smartphones and share it in real time using social networks (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, etc.), text messages or email with one simple click. Paired with Verizon’s Navigator® users can view a map with shared videos, each represented by a colored pin, and select a location of interest. Tapping on the “Navigate” button will activate it and guide the user towards the selected destination utilizing the recorded video Geo-Tagging without needing an address or directions.
“With Flixwagon Geo Edition, Verizon Wireless customers now have the power to easily stream live mobile video and share it in real-time with their social circles” said Arie Offner, Chairman at Flixwagon. “The market for sharing live mobile video continues to grow exponentially and now with the capability for users to easily travel to recommended places, leveraging video geo-tagging and integrated GPS navigation, we feel that the value of mobile video sharing will only continue significant growth.”
Flixwagon offers users a variety of features for both personal and business use, including two way real-time interaction between Facebook viewers and the broadcaster, a paint feature for live drawing on top of captured videos, and broadcast notifications to groups, such as friends and family.
This announcement reinforces Flixwagon’s strategy to work with telecom carriers and other brands to deliver live mobile video solutions. Last week Flixwagon announced a partnership with Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL), India’s number one telecom service provider.
Verizon Wireless customers owning an Android device can download Flixwagon through Verizon Wireless’ mobile application storefront at no charge here. This free version of Flixwagon supports advertisements.
