Skyfire was the first mobile browser to integrate real-time web activity aggregating customized feeds from news, media, Facebook and Twitter. It continues to be the only mobile browser that delivers the PC web to mobile phones at unprecedented speeds. Skyfire is partnering with Web companies to create a host of links available in the Skyfire bookmarks, giving their users easy access to sites they visit frequently – social networks and media-rich sites.
“The MocoSpace brand and its mobile community product fit really well with our vision to bring the richest possible social networking experience to this mobile generation,” said Tracy DeMiroz. “With the explosion of social networking among Skyfire users, we are happy to reach the over 6 million registered users that MocoSpace has. Now with this partnership, in just one click, our users can be engaged with all MocoSpace has to offer.”
MocoSpace empowers anyone with a mobile device to have a full, rich social networking experience on mobile without ever having to use a computer.
“We’re always looking for new opportunities to reach mobile consumers especially if we can make the mobile socializing experience better in the process,” said Justin Siegel, co-founder and CEO of MocoSpace. “It makes a lot of sense for us to partner with a great product company like Skyfire because our interests line up so well. Both companies seek to make the mobile Web experience faster, more accessible and more fun for consumers.”
