Bubble Motion launches NextGen voice-blogging platform, Bubbly 1.5

Mobile audio social networking pioneer Bubble Motion has launched the next generation of its popular voice-blogging platform, Bubbly 1.5. The new version integrates social and interactive features, further enhancing the largest and fastest growing voice-blogging service connecting mobile communities through voice.

Bubbly, a voice-blogging phone service where people share voice updates with friends, family, fans and followers instantly via SMS alerts, has been described as a voice-based Twitter.

New in Bubbly allows listeners to vote on popular content, provide feedback to Bubblers and identify popular content and top bloggers. It facilitates interactive dialogs by letting listeners respond to voice-bloggers by sending a recorded voice reply. It lets audiences forward compelling, funny, or inspiring blog updates to other interested parties.

“Rapid product iteration and innovation in the mobile space has lagged behind that of the Internet for too long,” explained Tom Clayton, CEO of Bubble Motion. “We’re breaking the typical long product release cycles and upgrades inherent in the mobile industry and evolve Bubbly at a true Internet-pace. This new set of social networking features in Bubbly closes the gap in empowering the huge populations of people who prefer their mobile phones over the Internet to build communities through the power of voice.”

Bubble Motion will be rolling out integrated Bubbly features this year through partnerships with the largest operators in Japan, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines.

Bubble Motion is pioneering voice messaging and social communication for mobile phones. Bubble Motion’s products include BubbleTalk, an asynchronous person-to-person voice messaging service (also known as VoiceSMS), BubbleCast, an integrated text and audio content broadcasting service, and now Bubbly, a voice-blogging phone service where share voice updates with friends, family, fans and followers. Bubbly is like Twitter with a voice and is bringing social networking to mobile phones.
