SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ — T-Mobile (UK) Ltd and iSkoot, a leading provider of mobile Web services, today announce that they are trialling iSkoot Notifier, a free social media application that allows customers in the United Kingdom to simplify their mobile social networking with a single app.
iSkoot Notifier makes it easy for T-Mobile UK customers to stay fully connected to popular social media sites, including FacebookÂ®, MySpace(TM), and TwitterÂ®. Notifier also provides access to over 50 customer-selected feeds in news, sports and entertainment. Customers can easily view and manage their social networks and news alerts through live feeds and real-time notifications.
“We know that our customers want to use social networking,” said Matthew Dove, Head of Prepaid Products. “Notifier works on low end devices, which means we can get it to the widest number of customers, not just smartphone users.”
When customers sign in to Notifier, they can easily view friends’ activity, news feeds, status updates and new photos. Customers can directly post new status messages and tweets, send comments and messages, and receive updates from their preferred news sources through a single stream on their mobile phone in real time.
“We know from speaking to carriers throughout Europe that one of the most sought after capabilities on any handset is the ability to stay plugged in to social media,” said Mark Jacobstein, CEO of iSkoot. “Because our solutions do the heavy lifting in the cloud and deliver communications to a single platform, service providers can bring social networking and news feeds to almost any mobile device they offer regardless of the technology.”
Notifier is based on iSkoot’s popular Kalaida(TM) Mobile Web Services Platform, which powers social media for subscribers of leading U.S. carriers. For more information on iSkoot services and solutions visit: http://www.iskoot.com/.
