Mobyko Launches Next Generation Mobile AJAX Gallery

Mobyko Has Launched Its Web 2.0 Online Photo, Video and Text Galleries, Allowing Customers to Manage Social Media

Mobyko has announced the launch of its web 2.0 online photo, video and text galleries, providing a revolutionary way for mobile users to manage their social media. The galleries provide a desktop application experience on the web. The exceptional implementation and depth of functionality provides a seamless user experience. The galleries feature AJAX to provide the smooth transitions and special effects that have traditionally only been available in flash applications. Mobyko users are able to store, manage and share their mobile content for free.

Photos and videos pop up when individual thumbnails are clicked. Users can move and organize their photos, videos and texts into different albums with a simple drag and drop mechanism. Furthermore, photo slideshows are generated on the fly. The user-friendly interface means that captions, comments and dates can all be changed with just a few key strokes.

"By pushing Javascript and the browser to the absolute limit, we have created a unique and seamless user experience that we like to think sets a new benchmark in web app design," said Mobyko CEO Julian Saunders.

The new Mobyko galleries rely on cutting edge AJAX and Javascript technologies. Mobyko's developers utilised John Resig's fantastic jQuery Javascript library (www.jquery.com) to provide smooth transitions, animations and user interfaces. jQuery also handles AJAX requests ensuring what appears on the screen is mirrored in the database backend.

this sounds good. however, the utilization of a well known Ajax library can hardly be described as "Mobile Ajax", even though it is used in a mobile environment. it has not been said which browsers the application will be working in, WebKit-based ones (Nokia S60, iPhone, Android) will probably work, all the rest probably won't.

here it would have been interesting to point out the fallback-mechanism if there is one.
