San Francisco - ZoomMediaPlus today announced the ZoomIt, an app-enabled iPhone/iPod accessory that lets users access and share content from other CE devices without a need for syncing.
The ZoomIt connects to an iPhone or iPod Touch via the bottom connector, and then reads and shares content from an SD (any type or capacity) when inserted in to the card slot of the ZoomIt. It reportedly supports all iPhone SDK 3.0 (or higher) photos, music, videos and documents, including PPT, XLS, DOC and PDF files.
ZoomIt lets users view, listen, transfer and share content via email, Facebook and Flickr, the company said, and is compatible with all iPhone and Touch models and generations.
ZoomMediaPlus said the ZoomIt application will eventually support protected content types, allowing streaming of licensed music, videos and other forms of protected content. When TWICE contacted a company spokeswoman about a timeline for this feature, a response was not received by press time.
Users will be prompted to begin an automatic download of the ZoomIt app from Apple's App Store once they connect the ZoomIt accessory to their iPhone or Touch for the first time. The app can also be downloaded to iTunes and synched to the iPhone or Touch when connected to a computer. With the accessory connected and the SD card inserted, the user can view and stream content directly from the SD card, the company said.
The ZoomIt accessory will be available for shipment in April at a retail of $59.95. The ZoomIt app will be free.
