Blast SMS From ClearSMS

Next Story

Zimbabwe Mobile Network Expansion

clearsms.jpgIf you have a legit reason to send out bulk SMS messages, there are a few tools you can use. One new one is ClearSMS, which will allow you to promote a new product, send out announcements to your friends and of course collaborate with employees.

This service from ClearSMS is a Web-bases SMS system, and because you do need to sign up this means that we shouldn’t have to worry too much about spammers using to fill our handsets with useless messages. We’ll have to play with this a bit, and see what we can do about opting out, and how well it works. But anything that allows groups to stay in contact with a simple app like sounds pretty good.

    This how Apples hype marketing strategy works: first forbid certain features as long as you can… then allow it.. and BAMM… another hyped feature..

      Hehehehehe… so true !

    • Glenton Samuels

    I agree with Melvin.

    And that is why we do NOT develop applications for iPhone …

    They do not care about their customers, they just wanna do as much money as possible.

    • Laurentiu @

      … well I guess “make money” would be correct in English :)

  • Christopher @ Free Web Site

    As much as I love Apple (and I do), I think the way they’ve limited access to the iPhone is pretty sneaky. The app store is great but making it a violation of the Digital Millennium Act to access the built in video camera, that’s crap.

    You said “Mobile CDN launched the first live streaming application approved by Apple” – ustream has had their official app up for longer than a couple of weeks, so I’d say Ustream was first…

  • Barret JM

    @davide lee king

    Orb had the first official application called Orb Live that streamed live content months ago.

    1. Orb Live was approved in July 2008 and connects to your home network and PC but this new Mobile CDN deal means that Orb is now available to the masses with no need to set up your PC at home. Cool…really cool.. great move for Orb.

    2. had their application approved in January and streamed CNN, Fox, PBS and other content for the Inauguration with loots of hoopla. Many have questioned if had permission to use the Inaug. content and I don’t think they did (as I have never see any professional content since) and this ended up being a cheap publicity stunt.

    I think this NBA application is the first approved live iPhone streaming application. It is obviously approved by Apple and more importantly approved by the publisher.

    Having streamed NBA live to the iPhone I think we shall now see the floodgates open for live on the iPhone. Live streaming on the iPhone approved by Apple…now that is the real story.

    @david lee. Ustream only works over WiFi.

    So this is the first “mobile” live streaming application on the iPhone. If you have WiFi why would you watch Tv on your iPhone and not you laptop?

    Convenience maybe. I guess?

  • Farren

    Kudos to Orb for getting into this market with mobile cdn. Orb have been a bit dorment for a while but this is cool. Seems like a mobile cdn is going to be a real opportunity. I asked all the big CDNs last year why they were not going after mobile but no intelligent answers. Will the mobile wave be like the cdn market all over again?

  • david lee king

    Barrett JM – iTunes App Store says Nov 08 for Orb, Feb 09 for Orb premium (release dates). And Ustream was Jan 09 …

    I thought Leena meant Orb was new – my bad! Otherwise, I’m still waiting for an official livestreaming video app… not just watching, but actual making…

    • julialuc

      @ david lee king: Orb applied for its “OrbLive” App in September 2008 and got approved on November 4th 2008. I do not know what Orb premium is. We have “OrbLive” and “OrbLive Free”, which is basically the same App with limited content for people to try out Orb. We also now have “Live Events”, which is a generic App showing “CDN” streaming capabilities. It’s free in the App Store as well, it’s the same technology that was used for the “ All-Star LIVE” App last weekend. “Live Events” currently shows live Webcams (or other feeds) for people to see how it works.

    Flycast has supported live streaming of audio on edge, 3g and wifi for months. I use it all the time.

  • DanDar

    @amd Eh! Keep up dude. We are talking live video not audio only…

  • thewolf

    What about Slingplayer? Live events can’t trump control of YOUR TV.

  • airmanchairman

    A lot of you guys do not really know what you are talking about, not having the actual hands-on experience of the topic you are wading into completely blindly.

    I have been streaming my from Sky Satellite Digi-Box and my analogue TV channels (BBC, ITV, Channels 4 & 5) LIVE to my iPhone 3G using Orb Live on my iPhone and Orb Streaming server on my Windows XP Media Centre Edition Dell PC since before Xmas 08.

    I use a Hauppauge WinTV capture card to connect between my Sky DigiBox, my TV aerial and my Media Server PC, and have been enjoying hours of uninterrupted Wi-Fi streaming via my 22Mbps broadband connection at work, on the bus, and while shopping. I can also see my WebCam in real time and monitor the security of my house while I’m out.

    An ingenious Sky Controller add-on box with accompanying software allows me to control channels, schedule, start and stop live recordings. Who needs Sling Player?

    Resistance is futile, join the Jobs Objective-C Collective!!!!

    This is cool.

    Live iPhone streaming at last:)

  • CasinosInCalifornia

    a good strategy for Apple.

  • Glenton Samuels

    There is so many things that annoy me about the iPhone but it’s also great at the same. It’s a love hate relationship.

  • iPhone Apps

    Anything I would say here was already said by Melvin in the second comment. This is just more of Apple being Apple. They have been doing this for years, and I see no reason why they would stop.
