Social newscasting site Pownce today unveiled Pownce Mobile, a handheld-oriented version of its service normally available only for visually rich browsers or Adobe's AIR platform. The new site allows both live posting of text updates similar to sites such as Twitter while also exposing most or all of the unique features from Pownce's own service. Every device can also post group events and links as well as track and post replies; phones with built-in file management can also upload images or media directly from the handset, the Pownce team says.
The interface is deliberately oversized for ideal control with the iPhone and iPod touch but is designed to scale elegantly to other mobile web browsers with at least basic image viewing, text editing, and support for cookies to save login information. The Pownce Mobile update is live as of today.
