– Funny Or Die: Online TV service Babelgum has got an exclusive, two-year license to distribute the comedy clips series on mobile, including developing an iPhone app, bundling the vids in to Babelgum’s apps and offering a Funny Or Die-branded area on Babelgum.
— MetalHammer: Future Publishing’s UK metal music mag has debuted a free iPhone app, with news, features, podcasts and gig listings, including iTunes Store affiliate links. More a brand extension than a big revenue generator.
— Nimbuzz: The instant messaging client — which lets users login to several IM services and Skype VoIP — is releasing an app for Google’s Android platform, to add to its iPhone app. But there’s no VoIP for the Android app, which is out next week. Research from the Dutch company suggests MSN has a 45 percent share of the European IM market. Via Techcrunch.
