Add a ‘Send To Phone’ button to your site

Here is a easy way to mobilize the content on your site or blog by adding a ‘Send to Phone’ button under any image, video, or music file. A good example of this is how http://www.box.net lets users with music or pictures in their online storage accounts send their content straight to their phones. Using the Myxer API you can send a url to Myxer with a phone number and we will send it to that phone – Cool!

This is a static example but realistically you’d want to script this to dynamically appear next to any content on your site – images, music, or videos.

Here is the breakdown of the url example above:

http://www.myxertones.com/magic/?(Trailing slash is important)

u=http%3A//farm4.static.flickr.com/32
49/2300911576_1eebd26c5a.jpg

u=url-encoded url of content (required) – This can be the url to a music file, picture, or video.

&t=Elephant

t=display name (required) – This will be used as the display name for the content.

That’s it, one link and you are set! Let us know how it goes, I can’t wait to see where they’ll start showing up. Have Fun!
