[prMac.com] Berlin, Germany - As of today the new iPhone app Zoobe Cam brings unemotional and non-customizable online communication to an end. The known ways of chatting, texting and getting in touch with your friends do not provide enough possibilities to express ones feelings. Social networks and photo sharing apps enable users to share their impressions through photos but further explanations or even greetings still require boring text. Adding at least some kind of feeling to a message quickly leads to flood of emoticons. Zoobe Cam is on a mission to take this way of communication to a whole new level: Users generate a tiny 3D animation movie which conjures a bright smile on their friend's faces and causes them to sigh rapturously. For even more fun an adorable little animal cartoon character delivers the sender's individual voice message using lip synchronized movements. And since all of this in not enough, the background is fully customizable as well. The app combines the best of all worlds of communication - just like a Swiss Army Knife.
With Zoobe Cam everybody turns into a movie director. How it works? Easy as it can be: In a first step you choose your favorite Zoobe pet. With a swipe of your finger you pick a good-natured bear, a charming cat or a sweet rabbit to star in the animated video. The next move is choosing a background by picking one out of two possibilities. Either you shoot a new picture with your Zoobe Cam or you use an existing one from your own iPhone photo library. Now it's time to add some emotions to your setting. Three basic moods - happy, sorry, cute - are available. The avatar now will move its body matching the intonation of your voice message. Creating and recording your voice message is the last step of directing your very own animated movie. After adding your words, the app will combine the cartoon figure, the message and the background setting to a complete 30 seconds video. Finally it's showtime for your Zoobe character. Just send it via email, text message or post it on Facebook and YouTube.
"Zoobe Cam is a brand new way of communication called Entertainment Messaging," says Lenard F. Krawinkel, founder and CEO of zoobe message entertainment GmbH. "Our mobile and digital life is driven by the joy to exchange and share with others. We wanted that world to be more colorful and emotional - so we created Zoobe. Users now have the opportunity to present themselves in an individual, humorous way and inspire their friends."
