Batelco introduces mobile backup app
App integrates social networking sites and backs up mobile data
Bahrain's Batelco has launched Socialbox, a mobile application that offers users mobile backup and integration of social media platforms.
Socialbox allows mobile users to back-up and retrieve contacts and calendar entries on different devices. The app syncs, restores and transfers the user's contacts from their mobile to the WAP site, from which they can be retrieved in the event of data loss.
The "Social Streams" service allows users to update their status, upload photos and post comments on all their favourite social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin simultaneously, via their mobile handset.
The apps also has a "Friend Finder" service that allows users to find friends who are in the same area and also subscribe to the service.
