SpinVox and Ping.fm team up!

Any long-term MIR reader will know about SpinVox, the market leader in voice to text services. When he isn’t starring in our weekly video show, our very own James Whatley serves as SpinVox’s “Social Media Strategist” which should explain why SpinVox has wholly embraced social media in the last year or so, culminating in today’s release of ping.fm integration.

For those of you not familiar with Ping.fm, it’s a simple looking website with a powerful backend that integrates dozens of blogging, status and social websites such as Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Blogger.com etc etc. In a single click you can push a short status update to all your profiles.

Personally, I love Ping.fm. Enough that when I first found out about it I setup an unofficial SMS interface for it so users can send Ping.fm a text message to update their statuses (more info on this here) but now, thanks to SpinVox, we don’t even need to tap out a message, simply call a number and, as their marketing message says, Speak Freely! SpinVox will convert your voice to text and Ping.fm will push that text to all of your profiles, optionally with a link to the original sound file.

It’s brilliant stuff but don’t take my word for it, sign up for ping.fm and give it a try for free at http://ping.fm/spinvox/

  1. I like Spinvox and use it a lot but they do seem to have a certain weakness for making big announcements amidst much fanfare only for nothing to happen later on.

    What ever happened to that Skype deal that was announced ages ago.
