Via.Me Now Available on Android 

Via.Me, the First App to Offer Photo, Video, Audio Filtering and Sharing to Multiple Social Networks, Is Now Available on Android 

SAN FRANCISCO, CA ­ September 4, 2012 ­ RadiumOne today introduced Via.Me for Android, an Android app that makes creating, filtering and sharing pictures, videos, audio notes, across multiple social networks as easy as two clicks. Via.Me is already available as both an iPhone app and destination website.

Since launching earlier this year in March, Via.Me has attracted a large and loyal following. The website, which many have compared to a combination of Tumblr, Pinterest and Instagram, is drawing over 12 million monthly unique visitors, and Via.Me’s iPhone app has attracted over 1 million users.

One reason Via.Me has found its audience is the variety of file types it handles, such as photos, videos and audio clips. ³Our community of users tell us they love being able to upload multiple types of content to their different social profiles,² observed Gurbaksh Chahal, CEO of RadiumOne.

But Via.Me is also the first photo, video and audio platform to provide a seamless user experience across mobile devices and the desktop, an increasing necessity in today’s multi-device world.

According to a recent study from Lopez Research entitled The Future of Mobile Is Right Time Experiences, the ability to create seamless experiences between devices and the desktop is increasingly important. As the report observes, mobile adoption has exceeded 120% in the US, as many individuals carry more than one connected device. These users expect a unified experience across all platforms.

Brands stand to be major beneficiaries of this shift. “Today, brands can build Right Time Experiences that integrate context from mobile devices and social interactions to deliver the right information or ad at the right time,” said Maribel Lopez, Principal and Founder of Lopez Research. “Consumers do business with a brand, not a channel. Advertisers must provide experiences that bridge interactions across mobile, the web and storefronts.”

Via.Me enables brands to connect the dots between different devices. As Keith Belling, Founder & CEO of popchips, explains, “The ability to easily publish content across multiple social platforms and create a consistent experience is a key reason why popchips is using Via.Me to enhance engagement with our audiences across the social landscape.” popchips is not alone: Via.Me has an impressive list of global brands using the platform including Kia Motors, Neiman Marcus, Sony Electronics, Fox Studios, among others.

Via.Me has another major benefit – results. As Chahal puts it, ³Through Via.Me, brands can realize more ROI from their existing social media investments by identifying new audience segments and retargeting on these segments across the Open Web.”

Some of Via.Me for Android standout features for consumers include:

  • Photo Filters – 17 best-in-class photo filters enable users to customize their favorite photos.
  • Multiple File Types – Upload photos, videos, audio and text
  • Real-Time Alerts – Receive instant notifications whenever someone you follow posts on Via.Me.
  • Easy Cross-Posting ­ Via.Me makes it easy to share across the most popular social networks like Facebook and Twitter in just two clicks.
  • Intuitive User Interface ­ The Via.Me app and website have an elegant and intuitive user interface that makes it fun and easy to create, share and discover.
