SpinVox voted “best new service” at World Communication Awards
SpinVox, the Voice-to-Screen messaging service that I looked at back in February, has won the “best new service” award at the World Communication Awards held last night in London.
The service can be used to post voice messages to blogs, including LiveJournal, Vox, TypePad, Blogger, Windows MSN Live Spaces and Moblog.co.uk, and with WordPress and Movable Type with the aid of an email Plugin. The service currently supports four languages: English, Spanish, French and German.
The judges described SpinVox Blog as “truly innovative and capturing the Zeitgeist”. SpinVox fought off strong competition to win the global award sponsored by Microsoft, including entries from Orange Business Services, 3 and Colt Telecom.
SpinVox CEO and co-founder, Christina Domecq, said: “This ‘Best New Service Award’ is a terrific honour. It is recognition of our drive to innovate and lead the market in bridging the gap between wireless and the Internet. We’re anticipating customer and market needs with simple, but smart services that make communicating and sharing experiences easier and more enjoyable. SpinVox Blog essentially allows people to blog instantly, anywhere, without losing the immediacy and emotion that brings the content to life.”
