Xumii Opens up Social Networking on the iPhone

Single Mobile Social Address Book Lets You Chat With Friends, Share Photos and Get Status Updates Across Different Social Networks and Communities

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - February 26, 2009) - Xumii (, the mobile social address book that makes it easy to stay connected to all of your friends all of the time, has released a free application for the Apple iPhone. Xumii combines iPhone contacts with friends from Facebook, MySpace, imeem, AIM, Yahoo! Messenger, Google Talk, MSN and Flickr. With Xumii, people can see everyone's status in one place and chat and share photos with friends across and between different networks. They can also update their own status once for all their communities.

"We wanted to make it really easy to keep up with your online social life when you're out and about," said Jennifer Zanich, CEO of Xumii. "Until now, there was no easy way to stay connected with friends scattered across different social and IM networks from a mobile phone. You had to launch multiple applications -- one at a time -- or go to multiple mobile websites. And of course, there was no way to communicate or share across services. Xumii changes all of that and lets people just connect with each other regardless of what service or network they are using."

Xumii iPhone lets people:

--  See all their friends from the iPhone, Facebook, MySpace, imeem, AIM,
    Yahoo! Messenger, Google Talk, MSN and Flickr in one place
--  See who's online and available to chat
--  Update their status once for ALL communities, or individually for each
--  See everyone else's status updates in one place
--  Grab a photo from their iPhone, Facebook, MySpace or Flickr account
    and share it with a friend on IM
