iPhone web, video tools
The public beta of Schmap is due to be released Friday. The company says restaurants, bars and other businesses can quickly create iPhone-specific maps and location information for their existing websites. Users enter their name and location, choose a color scheme, and code is created for use on a website. In addition to the iPhone, Schmap says it plans to include support for other mobile platforms, including Google's Android, BlackBerry, and the Nokia S60.
DIgitalFX says "The Studio" software suite allows users to broadcast and record live content over the internet as a public, private or pay-per-view session. The product can produce video email and supports video chats, podcasts and blogs though helloWorld.com for a monthly subscription fee.
A free preview version of Schmap is available now online. Access to helloWorld is available to Windows 2000, XP and Vista users in various monthly packages ranging from $10-$190, depending on usage.
