PacketVideo announced today the release of myTwonky (beta), Twonky Video app and Twonky Music app.
Here is what they said:
The suite of free products provides easy access to your existing library of music, photos and videos – as well as new content from the Web – whenever, wherever on your smartphone, PC or Mac.
myTwonky is a user-customized Web portal that searches the Internet for new content based on your personal video, photo and music preferences – eliminating the need to comb the Internet one website at a time for new, relevant content.
Simply tell myTwonky what topics you are most interested in (e.g., Lady Gaga or the San Francisco Giants) and you’ll instantly receive a running stream of related videos, side-by-side with videos, music and photos from your existing library of media content.
Once you create a free Twonky account, you can begin creating specific video channels and bookmarking your favorite content for easy playback.
Select streaming radio stations by genre and view your own music library in the same location.
Integrate your Facebook, Flickr and other social media networks with myTwonky for easy access to multimedia stored within those networks. You can also share content found using myTwonky directly with your social networks.
When coupled with the Twonky Music app and Twonky Video app, myTwonky gives you the ability to access both online and personal content anytime.
Preferences set within your myTwonky account translate to your Twonky Music and Twonky Video apps, eliminating the need to reset your personal settings for each platform.
