Have A Phone-tastic Halloween!

It’s a boo-tiful day in the neighborhood! All the ghouls and boys at Myxer headquarters have joined farces for some pre-Halloween fun. While working on the beach tends to make every day officewear feel like casual Friday, today is more of a Freaky Friday as we were challenged to dress our Halloween best for the first annual MYXERween costume luncheon. As we sunk our fangs into some delicious pizza and werewolfed it down, bloody slice by bloody slice, we admired some some of the Myxer team’s creativity. From Bloody Ballerina’s to Bling Bearing Baldness to Infomerial Madness to Mad Rock Stars to BioHazards to a Living Myxer.com Website (and of course the requisite guy in a gorilla suit) we had costume clad employees to suit anyone’s Trick or Treat tastes.

You can help us pick this year’s King or Queen of Halloween by VOTING HERE.

Of course there is still plenty of time to treat yourself by tricking out your phone with some screaming scary stuff to horror-fy your handset. We have monstrous MP3′s, terrifying tones, wicked wallpapers, vicious videos and enough Halloween fun to scare your smartphone silly.

You can start ringing in your Halloween with this chilling Holla-ween beat. Consider it your MYXERween Treat from the Myxer Team!

Myxer Cracks The QR Code

It turns out Da Vinci isn’t the only one who can get a bunch of people worked up about a code. For many years now the Mobile Industry has been excited by the prospect of using barcodes to connect the real world with the virtual world. I know this firsthand as back in 1998/99 I was co-founder of a company called BarPoint.com, and our entire business was built around the concept of entering or scanning a barcode on your phone and instantly getting back product specific search results and comparison shopping information. Can you say “ahead of our time”?

That Was Then, This Is Now

Flash forward to 2010 and the age of the Smartphone. Thanks to the proliferation of cameras in every phone the idea of scanning a barcode from your phone is becoming more and more common. There are now a number of companies and apps cleverly and creatively using barcodes to extend and simplify the process of accessing mobile content and interacting with physical media to trigger actions on your phone. It gives a new meaning to “point and click!” One of the the barcode formats growing in popularity is the QR Code (or “Quick Response” Code), the funny looking box above and below that you are starting to see cropping up in more and more places, from billboards in Times Square, to the backs of business cards.

The QR MyxerCode

A QR code can include an embedded link, and the software that your cameraphone uses to read the code can launch your browser and take you right to that link with a single click. It is EASY and Myxer likes EASY, so we have now added a unique QR Code for virtually every item, Artist and Content Partner on Myxer – over 5 million unique QR Codes! If you are downloading content from Myxer.com you can simply point your scanning ready phone’s camera at the QR Code on any item or artist page and get the link right to the mobile download on your phone. If you have a smartphone you may need to first download a Barcode Scanning app, and if so you can find a few suggested free ones here.

Cut And Paste, Point And Click

If you are an artist or brand with content on Myxer, you can easily “right click” on the code and save your Myxer QR Code as an image you can use on your own site, or even in printed materials to make it easy for your fans to point and click to get right to all your content on Myxer. Even better, not only does every item on Myxer now have a QR Code, but every item and artist also already has a customizable SMS keyword (Text “YourName” to 69937) so between the SMS code and the QR code, any phone can easily get to your content from anywhere you place the codes and SMS instructions. Cool!

Try it now and get a free laugh from the the “Can You Hear Me Now” ringtone by scanning the code below, and if you don’t have a scanning phone just Text “joelhaas 499″ to 69937 or click here.

Myxer’s BoomBox: Girl Power!

Female mobile users unite! In the quest to find out who is the most prolific mobile content consumer between the two sexes, females win by a landslide, according to Myxer’s latest BoomBox report for the month of April. In honor of Mother’s Day, Myxer has taken a deep dive into how female consumption habits compare to males, providing fresh insights on unique data broken down by new users, smartphone concentration, content downloads and wireless carriers.

According to the study, for the month of April women downloaded twice the amount of mobile entertainment content as men, representative of 4.5 million downloads, or 67% of total content downloads, compared to 2.2 million downloads for men. This large disparity in downloads is due to two factors; there are roughly 1.7 times as many females as males downloading content from Myxer on a monthly basis, and each female that visits downloads 17% more content than the average male.

Really interesting stuff! Check out the entire report here.
