The year once again comes to an end.
And what a year it has been for us.
Moby grew and grew. Our APIs are used in over 1300 different applications. We got users and visitors in over 233 different countries (I thought there were only 192, but not according to Google Analytics).
With the holidays coming up (not for us because we’re working on some really cool MobyNow platforms for FC Ajax and the Top Notch label) it is time for our annual Christmas card!
Today we’re releasing the new Moby iPhone app.
(press get overview all features here! Moby iPhone app 2.01 – feature overview and download Moby-iPhone-App-kit)
Last weekend I’ve posted my 20.000th Mobypicture posting. That makes me a Moby addict. An addict for sharing life.
It doesn’t feel like that many, but that’s something all addicts probably say.
With the new Operating System for iPhone and iPad, launching today it will be really easy to post your pictures to the Twitter picture service, right from your photo library.
This was already really simple for posting to Mobypicture straight from the library, but we’re refreshing your memory with a small how-to:
We really like you here at Mobypicture HQ. But your website is very outdated with the not working LaLa and Myspace elements.
That’s why we developed a MobyNow platform for you and your fans.
This means that from now on, all the traffic your Mobypicture postings generate when you post to Twitter, Facebook and YouTube will end up on your own website instead of on Mobypicture.com.
To see how this works: Click on the “Moby.to”-link in your latest tweet!
As an experiment we added Google+ as a posting destination on Mobypicture.
This means that when you post your adventures, using the native Mobypicture apps or any of the over 1200 Moby powered applications (Twittelator, Twitteriffic, Tweetdeck, Twitter for iPhone, Plume for Android, Gravity for Symbian, etc. etc.), your photo, video and audio postings can also be shared in your G+ account!
With all these sharing and picture apps, why should you actually use Moby? A question I get pretty often.
Well there is a lot of reasons, some are obvious, others need a closer look.
Especially for this we’ve made a page in Zendesk explaining our USPs.
Take a look and share this with your friends!
You can share this info directly using the following tiny url – > http://moby.to/why
Our friend Vodafone has kindly asked us to use Mobypicture in their roaming product campaign.
This resulted in a really nice commercial about how you can, now for only € 2 per day, send up to 20 Mobypicture postings from your holiday destination.
This commercial was broadcasted on Dutch Television over the last few weeks and is at the moment visible throughout the country on billboard and other outdoor advertising.
Below you can watch the commercial and see the billboard design.
If you Spot The Moby Campaign, please Moby it using #stmc! (preferably with yourself in the reflection)
And add the link in the comments!!

Thanks Vodafone for this great opportunity!
Shoot and share, now also when you are on your vacation!
This week we will be presenting MobyNow to the Creative Industry.
Together with Tribal/DDB we’ve launched www.feedthecreatives.com.
This platform aggregates all the social media around the Cannes Lions.
We’ve developed some new features and are now capable of filtering certain elements from the shared contextual postings and can present that in different way.
We for instance extract all the YouTube links from the shared social media and have built a Cannes Lions social video feed from this. This shows the in realtime shared videos on YouTube.
Another new feature are the blog streams. We filter the Cannes related blogposts from a big list of advertising blogs, making the content even more specific.
You can of course help feed the Admen. Just sign up for the platform, configure your Twitter client to use Mobypicture and Shoot ‘n Share!
If you want me to present the possibilities for your campaigns or corporate communications/events, just send me a line and we’ll schedule a quick meeting sur la plage!
