here’s a sneak peek at Spreaker…

 

Here’s a sneak peek at another new app before it goes into the App Store. Spreaker, which is a very streamlined app that does for audio what Twitter does for text and YouTube does for video — makes it extremely easy to share content across social networks.

With Spreaker, you can broadcast live radio right from your mobile.  Anyone can create content and broadcast it instantly to one’s Facebook page, or listen later as a podcast. In addition to being a cool app, Spreaker also boasts a robust backend website that allows you to do much more interesting and fun things, like adding studio sound effects and background music to your productions.

An adhoc version of the app for iPhone is available for download from TestFlight here and it’ll be in the App Store next week, and on Android immediately thereafter.

Promo video here – have a look.

 

 

This will be the next big thing, watch out facebook and twitter…there’s a new sheriff in town.

 

 

Proporta’s USB TurboCharger 5000 wins a Recombu award…

Last night Proporta was lucky enough to be invited to the first annual Recombu awards ceremony in London as the USB TurboCharger 5000 was nominated in the “Best Mobile Accessory” catagory. Overall there were 13 awards up for grabs, with prize winners being the likes of Samsung Galaxy SII (Best Smartphone),  BBC iPlayer (Best Mobile App) and Facebook (Best Social Networking App). Other nominees for the Best Mobile Accessory included Orange’s Sound Charge T-Shirt, the Wacom Bamboo Stylus and the Griffin Beacon, but the winner was (drumroll please), the Proporta USB TurboCharger 5000. Thank you very much Recombu!

Proporta USB TurboCharger 5000 - Recombu Award 2011

This ridiculously handy product allows you to recharge your mobile devices on the move again and again. It features one Mini USB input port and two USB output ports. This allows the option of charging two devices simultaneously. Simply plug any USB/micro USB powered gadget (including your Apple iPad, iPhone 4/3G S/ 3G, Apple iPod, BlackBerry, most digital cameras, GPS units and mobile phones) into the USB TurboCharger’s standard USB port and it’ll keep even the most power hungry devices juiced up and ready to go.

HP TouchPad reduced to only $99

HP announced a massive discount on its TouchPad last week reducing the device down to $99.

As word hit the streets, sales of the tablet sky rocketed with some stores in New York and other major cities completely selling out of these items due to the very low price and high demand.

LCF and Proporta featured on Metro Online

A few months ago we announced that we had worked with London College of Fashion asking  students there to design some cases that could be used in day to day life.

Metro was part of the judging panel to choose three winners, who may see their creations included in Proporta’s future product range.

Queen Elizabeth’s iPad 2…

Here at Proporta we got quite excited when we heard through the grapevine the the Queen now has her very own iPad 2. Naturally, our thoughts wandered to how she’s going to protect it and we decided with a custom-designed Proporta pouch. So, design guru Graham set to work on designing something for HRH,  something classy that reflects her personality and the things she loves. Here’s what he’s come up with.

The pouch is made from purple leather, with the Queen’s emblem embossed onto the front and tag, and a corgi-print lining. Please note: we will not be producing any of these pouches. This picture and blog post are purely for fun.
