ORANGE COUNTY, Calif., Nov. 24, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Ubiquity Broadcasting Corporation has created an ingenious mobile application weaving community and entertainment together. Ubiquity's mobile initiative is entrenched with its own proprietary patent and patent pending technology appropriately named "WEAV". One of the visionaries behind the genius is CEO Chris Carmichael.
WEAV mobile utilizes Ubiquity's Lifestyle Portal patent which was awarded to Ubiquity in September 2009. The patent aims to configure internet-based information tailored to individuals' lifestyles where relevant information is available through a single web-site that meets the specifics of each user's lifestyle. The Lifestyle Portal Patent is the backbone to social media, mobile media, and social networks alike
Ubiquity has partnered with Lightmaker Group, one of the industry leaders in web and mobile development, to help in the development of Ubiquity's WEAV mobile initiative. Jesse Gazaway of Lightmaker said, "WEAV is the next generation now." WEAV mobile truly connects people on the go via mobile devices ubiquitously on any platform. Adrian Barrett CEO of Lightmaker adds, "WEAV mobile is going to change the way people access and use social media."
"Today, we communicate with our family and friends through Facebook, Twitter and YouTube," Carmichael said. "Tomorrow, you'll be able to take your friends with you wherever you want when you want, all on the go, with the mobile media device of your choice." WEAV mobile allows users to access all of their social media outlets at the touch of a button on the iPad, iPhone, and soon to follow on the Droid Pad, Google Pad, Samsung Galaxy Pad, and the Toshiba Folio 100 Pad.
Ubiquity's WEAV mobile pulls from the best content on the web and gives the end user customized media and information based on their preferences and profile, and allows them to "WEAV" with family and friends with ease.
Ubiquity Board Member, Dr. Jeffrey Cole of USC's Annenberg School for the Digital Future said, "Ubiquity has the power to change social media and digital technology forever." Today close to 5 billion people are using mobile technology. Cole goes on to say, "The key transformational change is empowerment, and Ubiquity has created the tools to empower the end user."
WEAV mobile Targets 13-29 year olds, who ambitiously seek to feed their appetite for content over the internet and mobile media devices to share with their family and friends. WEAV is a one stop application that features a uniquely simple and smart proprietary navigation and content management system. WEAV mobile gives the end user access to multiple social media sites and ease of use with the mobile media device of their choice. "WEAV mobile will forever change the way people view social media," adds Connie Jordan co-founder of Ubiquity.
Ubiquity's innovative team continues to create ground breaking technology around their patents, and high quality content for broadcasts over the digital multi-media landscape.
"Ubiquity's patents in social networking, ecommerce, compression, and navigation are central core areas in media, internet, and mobile use that are really going to define the next 20 to 30 years of digital use," added Dr. Jeff Cole.
