Accliptic Technologies Announces Immediate Release of Free MobiLog! Mobile Weblogging Tool
RANCHO CUCAMONGA, California - February 7, 2006 - Accliptic Technologies today announced the immediate release and availability of MobiLog!, a powerful mobile weblogging (“moblogging”) tool for online journalism. The software is available at no cost.
“Weblogging has taken the Internet by storm, providing those with something to say a platform upon which to say it.” said Jeff Campbell, founder and CEO of Accliptic Technologies. “However, many weblogging tools require would-be publishers to submit entries from a computer - which is rather limiting for online journalists on the go. MobiLog! was designed to allow submissions from anywhere.”
While weblogs are very popular (according to Pew/Internet survey results published in 2005, more than 8 million American adults have created weblogs and 32 million read them), it has not traditionally been simple to publish while away from a computer.
By removing the need to be at one’s desk at the time an update is made, MobiLog! makes it easier than ever to provide live, on-location updates from anywhere - from political events, sporting competitions and entertainment venues to your home or while on vacation. Both journalists and hobbyists alike benefit from the ease of remote publishing and immediacy provided by MobiLog!.
The core of the software is its ability to accept submissions from any email-enabled mobile device, such as a cell phone or PDA. Upon submission, published entries are automatically displayed on your web site. Image attachments, such as those taken using a cell phone camera, can be submitted as well.
In order to ensure the security of your site, the software can be configured to only allow submissions originating from specified email addresses, or those that include a predefined password.
With its Atom v1.0 syndication format support, MobiLog! allows your site’s visitors to receive updates on your mobile weblog’s content using their news aggregator of choice - even without visiting your site. Aggregators are available for numerous platforms, including many mobile devices.
Like all Accliptic Technologies releases, MobiLog! also offers an unprecedented degree of customization. Site developers can easily modify the appearance of the software by creating and modifying “themes”, integrating it into any existing web site.
Licensing & Availability
MobiLog! is free to download and use, and is available under the popular BSD open source license. True to the spirit of open source, developers are encouraged to contribute to the development of the software and distribute any improvements made.
