Support for Windows Mobile

In addition to the Symbian clients, we've got a new client for Windows Mobile, too. It is not yet as well-polished as the Symbian version, but we still hope that you find it usable!

Due to the large difference between Windows Mobile phones, we can't guarantee that it works on every device, but we've had success with at least these devices:
  • Samsung SGH-i780
  • HTC Touch Diamond
  • HTC Touch Pro
  • Sony-Ericsson XPERIA X1
It may work on other Windows Mobile 6 devices too, so if you're feeling adventurous you may want to give it a shot anyway. Please let us know about your experiences!

New Symbian Clients

Today we released new versions of the mobile clients for Symbian. The main new features are:
  • Much improved video quality on many S60 3rd ed phones
  • It is now Symbian Signed on S60 3rd ed, so you won't have any problems with "Certificate error" when installing it
  • GPS-based geotagging built in, without having to manually sign and install separate components
  • Network based positioning on many S60 3rd ed phones, no GPS required
  • Assorted UI details and bug fixes
  • Auto updating, so you won't have to manually fetch new versions later on (we've got a lot of new things planned for you!)
Since the earlier versions weren't Symbian Signed, the new signed version can't bring over your settings from the previous version, but later updates will work just fine.

Stay tuned for more...

Campbell&Friends at Web2.0 Berlin

Me, Pouria and Tom are heading over to Berlin for the Web2.0 Expo together with Polopoly. While in Berlin we´re gonna meet up with the always inspiring Phil Campbell ( Phil will team up with Christian Payne (aka Documentally ) to cover all cool things that are cooking during the week. Hopefully they will get a Wi-Fi connection during the whole time at the venue.

Both guys are from England and are very active social media guys and do a lot of video and videoblogging. You can see some of their stuff over on their rezpondr sites ( and and those will be updating over the coming days - most of the live stuff will be shot and done using Bambuser!

We´re really looking forward to meet Phil and Christian in real life! Expect some great interviews, great folks and some cutting edge tech-terms you´ve never heard before!

For you all of you who are in Berlin, visit us at the Polopoly stand or catch us in the hall. If we´re nearby a bar, come have a beer with us and chat about anything you like!

Scheduled downtime tomorrow evening

To be able to give all of our beloved users an even better experience of our service, we´re taking Bambuser through some major changes over the coming time.

As one of the first things we are moving our new and shiny servers to a bigger and more cosy crib. We need to do this a bit earlier than planned, and we will therefore have to keep the service off-line between Wednesday 4:30 pm (CET) and Thursday 8 am (CET). We´re sorry for any inconvenience.

All the best
