ShoZu, best known as the UK-based developer of an application which allows you to upload to social sites like Flickr, has raised just over £6m ($12m) in Series C funding. SEB Venture Capital led the round, and was joined by previous backers Atlas Venture, Crescendo Ventures and TTP Ventures. In November it launched services allowing users to upload Flickr albums, Facebook pages and personal blogs via picture messaging/MMS simultaneously. Destination options also include Google Picasa, Faces, Buzznet, Kodak EasyShare Gallery, Webshots, Windows Live Spaces,,, Pikeo, and

    Amazing to see ShoZu doing so well. The service is on my list of “top five applications I can’t live without”.

    The audio and video ZuCasts make my hour-long commute to and from work bearable…

    This is so sad… ShoZu is so sad, they already ran out of the last round of funding? Their client-based application strategy is so ridiculously flawed, they must have 20 engineers updating the application as more and more mobile phones are released every day!!

    Hey there,

    Thanks for picking up on the release about our series C funding.

    This really gives ShoZu a huge boost and ensures that our team can always stay ahead of the curve in development and innovation :-) As a matter of fact, a brand new release of ShoZu is just around the corner with some awesome new features and new partners.

    It’s a tough job but somebody’s got to do it ;-) That’s the nature of mobile. If you want easy to use 1-click access to all of your favorite websites then you need a client. Not just for ShoZu but anything else that’s worth having like Gmail, YouTube, Yahoo Go, etc, all of which are awesome apps. Sure you can do the same thing in your mobile web browser, but it is a generally a hideous experience which takes several times longer to accomplish the same task.

    If you don’t mind doing it all via MMS with a few extra clicks then ShoZu also has an MMS gateway which is of course client-free and you can use it with any phone on earth that supports picture/video messaging. So you can take your pick. But 50 million pre-installed handsets can’t be wrong :-)
