NFC Jewelry for Kids? Hello, baubleApp.com

I’m thinking this could be a terrific year for Holiday gifts with NFC (“near field communication”).

The folks who build and update me, “My Santa Talk” are contentAI studios, owned by zyntroPICS inc.

zyntroPICS inc. just launched a new imprint, baubleApp.com – Where “real world jewels, toys and products are released with mobile companion apps.”

What does it look and feel like?

How about (my dear friend) the Toothfairy, has a special necklace made that when tapped by an NFC phone, leads to a fresh and shiny daily voice message from the Toothfairy herself!

I know, I know, most will wonder whether there will be a Santa NFC product with a companion app?

I think the elves has best get to work on that.

[Technically, baubleApp doesn’t launch until May 8th, so, consider this a sneak peek; but, their site is still under construction until then]

Santa is Now In the CHROME Web Store

Depending on which side of the World you’re on, for many, it’s summertime.  It’s hot.

But, the MY SANTA TALK app receives daily traffic from kids around the World.

As contentAI studios are expanding their delivery network, we’ve now added the GOOGLE CHROME STORE to our release pattern and we’ve added MY SANTA TALK here:

 While this is only a release of the Holiday 2011 App; it is also where you’ll find the updated MY SANTA TALK during it’s Q4 release later this year.

What’s included in the next version?

That’s a surprise.

 

 

11 Days Before X-Mas. . .We’re In Amazon’s App Store…

Cutting it a bit close this year, but, our MySantaTalk Android app (thanks @appsgeyser) passed validation and made it into Amazon’s App Store:  http://www.amazon.com/contentAI-studios-My-Santa-Talk/dp/B006M5F2YG/

Passing validation for Kindle is a second step…not sure we’ll make it this year???

So, get your chat with Santa on…almost anywhere!

Moments Away from 2011 New Launch – Chat with Santa…

It’s been a long year.

But, seeing MySantaTalk move from Beta to it’s Version 1.0 is really exciting.

We are in the process of validating some native app versions and fine tuning the mobile web version.

One more day. . .

Nice timing on the GigaOM story about “interactive fiction” — http://gigaom.com/2011/12/07/interactive-ebooks-take-on-fiction-novels/ — Go figure, Santa reading GigaOM?

Have a wonderful Holiday Season.

The Holidays are Almost Here…Santa’s Getting Ready to Chat. . .

While we left last year’s story and chat available throughout the Year (yes, I enjoy chatting in July), the ALL NEW “MYSANTATALK” is about to be launched in November 2011 in time for the Holiday Season.

New story.
New chat.
New pictures.

And, we’ll also be on some new mobile platforms this year.

OK, Santa’s going back to his RegEx Elves to put on the finishing touches.

Santa Chat for Holidays 2011 — Where to find Santa?

The 2009 MySantaTalk was available on Instant Messaging.

The 2010 MySantaTalk was available on mobile web.

The all new 2011 MySantaTalk is being entirely rebuilt and redesigned and will feature more bells, whistles and AI tools than it’s predessors…and, it will be available in many more channels. . .mobile web, Android, Windows 7/XP (AppUP), Meego and maybe, just maybe, we’ll even do a native iOS version.  NOOK/color is also a strong possibility.

Announcement will be made, including Links, no later than October.

Stay tuned. . .

An All New Chat with Santa for 2011 – Now in Progress

It’s make-over time for MySantaTalk.

We’ve just scheduled the work to commence in July for an all new version of the application, delivered to more mobile sets and through more channels, for the 2011 Holidays.

The current version will be taken offline during the first week of July.

New features?

Many, including a few surprises.
