Kinoma Play, the Best Way to Find, Play and Share Media, Now Available for Nokia S60

The "Social Media Browser" That Connects People to Their Favorite Media Is Now Available for the Largest Installed Base of Smartphones in the World

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - September 15, 2009) - Today Kinoma announced that its flagship product, Kinoma Play, is now available for Nokia S60, the world's dominant smartphone platform. Nokia S60 users can now enjoy the best way to find, play and share media in a beautiful, fast, easy-to-use application.

Kinoma Play lets users find media fast by browsing the extensive built-in Kinoma Guide app or searching leading media sites including YouTube, Flickr and SHOUTcast. It allows them to play media in all popular formats including Windows Media, MPEG-4/H.264 and iTunes AAC. Finally, Kinoma Play users can easily share what they're enjoying using Twitter, Facebook, Last.fm and more.

"Kinoma Play connects your media and your social networks with a power and simplicity unavailable in any other S60 application," said Peter Hoddie, CEO of Kinoma. "It's not just that Kinoma Play does more -- it's how naturally and intuitively everything works together. Nokia users have been asking us for Kinoma Play since its release on Windows Mobile, and today we're proud to announce that their 'killer app' has arrived."

"Nokia's goal is to provide the best media experience possible on mobile, so we're thrilled that Kinoma Play is now available for Nokia S60 phones," said Purnima Kochikar, VP, Forum Nokia and Developer Communities, at Nokia. "It's exciting and fun for consumers who want to play and share the world's best entertainment content, and indispensable for business users who need constant access to the latest business and financial news. Innovators like Kinoma show that the only limit to Nokia platforms is their imagination."

Setting a New Standard for S60 Applications, and for Mobile Media

As a next-generation media player, Kinoma Play is peerless. It makes standalone single-media players obsolete, enabling effortless command over music, video, podcasts, audiobooks, Internet radio and photos. Whether playing media from the phone, web sites or social networks, Kinoma Play makes the experience fast, fun and easy.

In addition to playing personal media, Kinoma Play puts the "best of the web" in the palm of your hand with quick, easy access to content including millions of hours of on-demand and live video, more than 30,000 radio stations, tens of thousands of audio and video podcasts and millions of photo albums.

Connecting Content and People Like Nothing Else Can

With deep support for major social networks including Twitter and Facebook, Kinoma Play makes sharing media as natural as playing it. Share photos and links to your favorite music and YouTube videos in seconds. Use the built-in Last.fm app to "scrobble" your personal playlist and learn more about favorite artists, then use Kinoma Play's unmatched YouTube app to watch their music videos.

Exclusive cross-social sharing allows users to share everything with everybody in a way that would be clumsy or impossible with other applications -- for example, users can share YouTube videos on Facebook, share Facebook photos on Twitter, share podcast episodes via SMS and more.
