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!

Everyone’s at SXSW, but I’m stuck in LA

So it seems like just about everybody in the friggin’ company is in Austin at South by SouthWest now, and I’m stuck in LA with a bunch of tall guys in suits. What gives? Last year at this time, I was backstage with Amy Winehouse and Twitter was making its debut, and this year I’m getting ready for dinner with a lawyer after lunch with investment bankers.  Something has got to give here….

Here’s to hoping you all are having more fun than I am!

New Interactive MyxerTags

Hey, everybody. Long time no see.

We recently updated MyxerTags to be a lot more slick when embedded on your MySpace or other website. On every item’s page, look for the “Sharing is fun” section about halfway down, and grab the HTML code from the box labeled Embed: (or MySpace Embed:).

MyxerTag Embed code

Then just paste it into your web profile or whatever, and you have a really slick widget that shows off the ringtone (or video, etc.).

You can grab the embed code for today’s Myxer’s Pick of the Day here (and on every other item page): http://www.myxertones.com/ringtone:224834/

If you want to see what they look like outside of the Myxer environment, here’s a little demo page Jeff put together to show them off: http://myxer.tumblr.com/

Well, that’s all I wanted to say! Everything’s going great for us here at Myxer, hope the new year is treating you well, too. Let us know.

Verizon Wireless message delivery update

Yea! We just switched over to use a new, more reliable way to send messages to you Verizon Wireless folks. You may still see some delays as we work out the kinks, but it should be much better now. Give it a try when you get a chance and drop us a note if you want to tell us how great it is (or if you have any questions/problems), http://www.myxertones.com/feedback/.

Thanks for your patience. Enjoy!
