AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Piddas21, a mobile app startup and subsidiary of Fortune Global 500 Quanta Computer (TPE:2382), today launched its inaugural mobile application, Piddas21 RemotePlay ahead of SXSW. The initial launch will be on Google Play for Android devices with iOS (iPhone, iPad and iTouch) and Windows 8 versions being released in the coming weeks. RemotePlay becomes the first app to enable spontaneous peer-to-peer streaming and sharing of videos, photos, music and documents across multiple mobile platforms – giving people a new way to share their favorite content and enhancing face-to-face interaction.
“People have an inherent desire to share their interests and ideas with others, and have as much fun as possible in the process. However, current applications lack the ability to truly foster meaningful social interactions,” said Piddas21 CEO and Founder, Dr. Joe Lin. “RemotePlay removes the anti-social nature of today’s technology use by eliminating the divide between virtual social networking and real-world, real-time sharing.”
RemotePlay not only allows friends, family, acquaintances and colleagues to share content across devices, it also allows them to see what applications and devices other users are using, giving them more context to consider before sending content or choosing how to interact – enabling the same interactivity as approaching someone in-person based on what book they are reading. Additionally, once users are done sharing their content across RemotePlay it disappears from the recipient’s device, reducing storage use and allowing the sender to maintain control of the video, picture, music or document they are sharing.
