AT&T U-Verse Adds Apps
DALLAS, Jan. 7, 2012 — AT&T* has introduced two U-verse® Enabled apps which give consumers more innovative ways to share and interact with content: Twonky Beam, developed by PacketVideo, and Pix & Flix. Working with experts at AT&T Labs and tapping into our capabilities at the AT&T Foundry®, developers like PacketVideo are able to plug our technology into their apps and services through open APIs made available by AT&T– delivering innovations to customers faster than ever. Through AT&T’s approach to innovation – opening our network to innovators inside and outside the company – we can quickly and efficiently create new ways for customers to interact with their devices and U-verse service. The Twonky Beam app lets you take your favorite compatible video clip from the smallest screen in the home—your smartphone—to the biggest with a swipe of your finger. Quickly and easily send compatible Internet video clips you’re viewing on your mobile device to the U-verse receiver to watch them on your TV screen. With Pix & Flix, created in the AT&T Labs, you can share photos with friends and family on the biggest screen in the home—the TV. The Pix & Flix app allows U-verse TV customers with High Speed Internet to “throw” photos stored on your mobile device to your TV, making it easy to view your images on the big screen quickly. You can also connect to your personal Facebook account and view photos associated with your account on your TV screen. View photos as a single page or in slideshow mode, with customizable view settings. AT&T Inc.
