Forget Text, Use for Video Status Updates!

San Francisco-based web and mobile app company Particle has just unveiled their Android app,  Forget tweets and status updates with boring text.   Using one can record and broadcast 3-second video clips as status updates from their Android handset. Why bother reading about your friend at the coffee shop when you can see them enjoying that white chocolate mocha in video?

According to Particle, the app provides the ability to “socialize your mobile address book” as well as sync to their network. integrates with twitter, Facebok and a handful of other social networking services in addition to their own so users can connect to friends and family without starting all over.  One of the cooler features in for Android is its ‘Mood Ring’  which displays your most recent video status update when someone receives a call from you.  The only catch is both parties have to have Android handsets with installed.
