Users of the mobango.com site for publishing, converting and sharing user-generated content for mobile phones, now have access to 1Gbyte of memory for their “Wap locker”.
The extra storage will make it easier for users to store and share their favourite videos, images, ringtones, games and software.
The tenfold increase in the amount of storage available to users is part of the ongoing Web 2.0 development of the site, designed to improve user experience for mobile users around the world.
“More and more mobile user-generated content is being created and shared everyday, said Mobango CEO Fabio Pezzotti. “As phone technology and memory allocation advances, we’re also seeing an increase in the sophistication and size of the files being uploaded to the Mobango site, with mobile videos proving particularly popular,” he said.
The Web 2.0 version of the site has also seen the introduction of social networking tools, including internal messaging groups that enable users to find and manage friends and create private groups.
The site currently has over a thousand groups created by networks of friends that want to share their mobile files privately. This feature allows members to choose what they want to share and with whom.
The trend towards mobile broadband and flat rates for data downloads is fuelling the growth of such sites.
Mobango has one million registered users.
