If you own multiple devices, how do you sync and share content across each device as well as your social networks? that allows you to do just that via their own browser-based universal media manager. Say you or your family have a home full gadgets, like a BlackBerry, PSP and G1. Using Dazzboard you can sync up your photos, video, and music (non-DRM) on each device and easily share your media on popular social networks like YouTube, Flickr, Facebook, and Twitter.just launched a public beta
Dazzboard supports multiple devices that can be used in mass storage/media transfer mode (they’ve even put together a handy list). iPod/iPhone owners, though, will want to pass for now. The media manager doesn’t yet support what can be argued to be the most popular device platform. Expect an update when Dazzboard has confirmed iPod/iPhone (and Mac) support.
When I first got word of Dazzboard, it struck me as being quite similar to DoubleTwist. Having a chance to actually use the service, though, I could see that the addition of integrating your social networks into this media manager is what set it apart. You can easily upload and manage your photos, audio, and video from the browser interface.
You can manage all of your photos and videos right in the browser — which makes it convenient (you will be able to access and use the service across Windows computers). Since you can sync the content to your portable devices, you don’t have to be overly concerned that you will lose everything if the browser-based media manager is down for some reason.
As stated earlier, if there is a glaring “gotcha” with Dazzboard, it’s the fact that there is no iPod/iPhone or Mac support — yet. Don’t worry, those are definitely in the works and “coming soon.” Still, that is a pretty big “no” for many potential users.
If you do, however, have multiple devices including iPods/iPhones and run on a Mac-centric computer environment you may want to go ahead and check out DoubleTwist — as that application does work very well with Macs and also supporst syncing media across portable devices ). I’ve previously0 used DoubleTwist to keep similar media content on an iPhone and BlackBerry. Now, however, DoubleTwist now only supports iPhone/Touch 2.0 firmware.
I appreciate more alternatives sync my media — especially while using different devices. Since Dazzboard is free, there’s really no reason not to try it out and see if it meets your needs. When Dazzboard includes Mac/iPhone support, I may have found my media management solution (the web interface is much more intuitive, and — in my opinion — more user friendly than DoubleTwist).
If you use Windows Mobile, Nokia, BlackBerry, G1, or a PS2 you should givea try — and let us know what you think.
