Smartphone app turns any TV into a Social Media Jukebox
April 29, 2014 --
HOUSTON, April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ --Tech startup Hurl Development, LLC today announced plans to make advanced screen customization features for its YouTube Jukebox app, Hurl, available to the general public. The smartphone app allows multiple users to "hurl" viral videos to nearby TV screens using GPS. The screen customization features that were previously exclusive to bars and restaurants enable additional functionality like explicit content controls and in-house promotions for use at public or private gatherings.
The move to make these features available for everyone follows heavy feedback provided by users during a recent survey conducted by the company. With the added level ofcustomization, users have turned Hurl into everything from a fun way to let guests DJ their favorite music videos at house parties to an educational tool used inside classrooms and lecture halls, alike. Some users turn their Hurl screens into digital billboards that local businesses pay to hurl their commercials on during rush hour in high-traffic locations.
The development team behind Hurl expects this change to inspire even more diverse uses for the app and widen its rapidly growing fan base.
Advanced screen features will be accessible from the bottom of the Screen Quick Launch Page at http://app.hurl.net .
Hurl is a social media platform that transforms web enabled TV screens into internet video jukeboxes that multiple users control with the Hurl smartphone app.
Viewers interact with each other's clips while they play on the big screen via real-time, on-screen popups that show DJ names, viewer likes or dislikes and live comments. Users of the Hurl smartphone app can even "skip vote" videos, which instantly stops playback and launches the next clip in the queue.
The Hurl experience is targeted at public and private spaces but previously required a licensed subscription for commercial use. Advanced features enable access to Hurl's In-house Promotions System and Admin Control Panel (explicit content controls, queue limits, etc). For more information, please visit http://www.hurl.net.
