The latest from Shozu ?

I recently updated my Shozu to the latest release. I have to admit, I'm on the fence with this update. I'm constantly having issues getting uploads to go through (ie. they are all stalled in a queue). The navigation is way diff than the last release and as far as I can tell I can no longer get flickr comments sent to my device - a feature that was awesome! Contacts backup is no longer supported either. See www.shozu.com

Heya Glenn,
Sorry to hear you had a few problems with the latest version of ShoZu. To answer your question about Flickr comments, they are all in there along with many more Flickr feeds too.

Just click Flickr on the ShoZu home screen and then click Add More. In here you'll see that you can subscribe to all of your friends' photostreams as well as various other feeds located under "My profile" and "Flickr feeds" (including two way commenting). For more info on all these new features you can check out our blog over here http://shozu.vox.com/library/post/shozu-40-has-landed.html

We have removed the contacts backup feature in version 4.0 as it was only used by a small percentage of people (sorry you were one of them!) and actually takes quite a bit of engineering work to maintain compared with other features that are used by many more people as we focus more and more on social media and social networking. There are a few other over-the-air contacts backup solutions that are available now so we hope you're not too lost without it being part of ShoZu!

In regards to the problems you are having with transfers, the best thing to do is click Options > Go To > Transfer status and watch for any specific error messages. If you see something strange here, shoot it over to support@shozu.com and we'll be more than happy to help you out.

Best,
Jambo

I do not blame you for wanting to leave Utterz. I was in the same boat until I discovered CellSpin.

Cellspin is SOO much easier to use, FREE, and is supported on over 300+ phones world wide. I was worried my phone wasn't going to be supported. Not to mention, but an added benefit is that they do images, text, video, and audio to the major Web 2.0 sites I use such as Myspace, Facebook, Blogger, etc... I even have my wife hooked on the service after posting videos of her throwing eggs at me onto her myspace profile. Her friends will not let her forget that for the rest of her life LOL.
