Cellogic today the launch of Flyscreen, a new mobile application created for Android smartphones that puts your favorite web services on your Android's idle-screen, enabling zero-click access to web content you use most. FlyScreen has been in private beta since end of August and starting from today, will be open to the public packed with new features, including Facebook Stream API support, "double tap to activate" smart locking mechanism, and more. FlyScreen vastly improves user's web-browsing experience by enabling zero-to-one click access to web content through a set of "widgets" bolted on the lock-screen.

By allowing its consumers to embed web services into the phone's lock-screen, FlyScreen enables quick and easy access to favorite websites and eliminates the remedial task of sorting through carrier decks, typing in URLs or launching mobile web browsers and applications while still allowing the user to lock the phone.

Key User Benefits

  • Absolute fastest way to consume, share, and tag content on your mobile carrier
  • Users do not have to click through the mobile device to find or open the mobile browser or wait for sites to load
  • Content is personalized, made relevant to each user
  • Using the sleep screen allows the user to always be connected to relevant content in a passive manner

FlyScreen Key Features

  • Dynamic content embedded onto the lock-screen, with a "double tap to activate" feature, allowing screen to act as a fully functional lock-screen and prevents accidental clicks
  • In-app widget gallery
  • Kinetic scrolling
  • Revamped UI for the Android platform
  • Integrated Search
  • Supports Stream API, allowing integrated sharing features through headlines via E-Mail, Twitter and Facebook (including "comment" and "likes" feature)
  • Tag headlines on the fly (to an RSS feed which can be plugged into Google reader, or any other RSS reader)

Since launching the beta, FlyScreen has undergone significant performance enhancements, making it extremely fast and slick. FlyScreen's packaged content is created in a manageable application, allowing consumers to get in, get exactly the content they need and get out. Unlike alternative routes that can lead to an overwhelming availability of content on the web, FlyScreen enables the mobile web to be as mobile as its users. For content owners or brands, this means quicker and easier ways to drive people and traffic to their mobile sites, apps or portals.

FlyScreen's widgets serve as the user's personable zero-to-one click web access – including Twitter and Facebook updates, mobile search points or any favorite site of choice, as the widget supports news, sports, social networks, entertainment and custom mobile RSS/ATOM feeds. Flyscreen also serves to create a better distribution and syndication channel for mobile content, empowering end users to personalize and democratize their mobile web experience.

Cellogic's FlyScreen is available from the Android Market free of charge.
