Thwapr’s share-to-phone functionality is not only innovative, but I believe it’s going to change the way we share and view information. The browser plugin, much like Amazon’s Wish List or the Pinterest Pin-It button, makes it easy to use on your computer. It’s kind of like taking the middleman (email or YouTube) out of the equation. I can’t even count how many times I had a video I wanted to share, but first had to wait the half hour or so for it to upload from my phone to computer to the website, just so I could send it to one or two people. This advance is huge!
Then, the fact that these videos can be uploaded and streamed to any device with video capability is another really great factor. To be able to take a video on my iPhone and not worry that my mom can’t see it on her ancient Razr is really great.
The only thing I’d like for the next iteration is a little better interface. It could be cleaned up a bit.
