Taking a Look at mywaves: A YouTube/iTunes on Your Mobile?
This week I attended presentation on new mobile technology at SF New Tech Meetup, organized by Myles Weissleder and Joel Sacks. There were several mobile technology starts-up presenting: ComVu, mywaves, Pinger, Zypsy, and Veeker. You can read a full description here. It was a very interesting event with very interesting companies presenting with VCs and other mobile tech companies in the audience.
But this post will focus on mywaves, a very interesting company bringing video sharing to mobile phones, letting folks transform video podcasts/mobile videos into mobile video channels with sharing and editing capabilities.
What is mywaves
mywaves is a very young company with a public launch in December last year, yet has a very mature and well-developed interface and with over 17,000 channels of content.
While this is a young market and the mobile market is not quite “Mobile 2.0″ despite the buzz, it is interesting to imagine how fast mobile viral videos could spread compared to web videos. People have their phones on them all time.
There are still kinks to work out for sure. When signing-up, I encountered some strange issues and I still have difficulty getting my Blackberry Pearl 8100 working with mywaves properly. However, mywaves looks an ambitious company and one to look out for.
