Social Media Browser Fizzik Enters Public Beta, Adds Amazon Shopping.
Seattle, WA, May 07, 2010 --(PR.com)-- Spry Hive Industries LLC today released its initial beta of Fizzik, a browser built around today's real-time, multimedia and social Web. The company also announced the addition of Amazon Product Search to Fizzik's growing list of supported Web services.
"The release of Fizzik to the public represents a huge milestone for us," said Paul Scarpa, CEO and co-founder of Spry Hive. "By opening up our beta, it allows us to reach a critical group of early adopters who are already redefining the way the rest of us will get news, entertainment, and social content on the Web in the future."
Fizzik will be available as a free download for a limited number of users registering at http://www.fizzik.com.
The addition of Amazon Product Search to the Fizzik toolset allows users to search Amazon.com's extensive database of products directly from the application. This feature extends Fizzik's existing integration with Web services such as Bing Search, Twitter, YouTube and Gmail.
"Fizzik is designed to make the Internet more fun, and for a lot of people that means shopping," said Grant Blahaerath, CTO and co-founder. "Amazon's huge product database and great developer support made it a natural choice for the Fizzik platform."
Fizzik is compatible with most Windows operating systems and integrates with industry-leading Web services. For more information, visit www.fizzik.com/press/ .
Key features of Fizzik Beta Version 0.20:
Scan the Web, Track the News - Fizzik 0.20 leverages the powerful search capabilities of Bing, Amazon.com and Twitter to help you keep up with online news, shop, and enjoy the Real-Time Web. It also displays search results right next to Web content, letting you flip through items rather than toggle back and forth between search results and Web pages.
More Multimedia, Fewer Distractions - Fizzik 0.20 integrates directly with YouTube, allowing you to simply type in a query and immediately start watching your favorite video without distractions. No more reading pages of text descriptions and thumbnails to get the video experience you expect.
Unlock Social & Multimedia Content - Fizzik 0.20 automatically displays the content in your Twitter status updates, and lets you quickly share links using Gmail, Facebook, and Twitter. And unlike many social media clients, Fizzik privately stores all the items that you post so that you can easily locate, enjoy and republish your favorite content.
