MySpace to get New Applications from Slide Soon

MySpace Developer Platform and Slide logo MySpace will soon feature a slew of new applications, such as Slide FunWall and SlidePoke, revealed Slide – a leading personal media firm, reported CNN Money. Slide has successfully developed, testes and installed the applications on MySpace’s recently announced Developer Platform.

On Tuesday night, at an event held for developers at MySpace’s San Francisco base, Slide unveiled the MySpace Developer Platform initiative. There were a number of other companies who also gave presentations of applications that are at present in the development phase.

“We’re very excited about the MySpace Developer Platform; it’s a huge opportunity for us to more directly engage with the MySpace community,” noted Max Levchin, CEO of Slide. Adding, “We’re really looking forward to introducing new applications and features that will help members better express themselves and communicate with their friends.”

Kyle Brinkman, vice president and GM, MySpace Developer Platform said, “MySpace has always had a relationship with the developer community, and today marks an evolution in our relationship.” Brinkman continued, “The launch of our developer platform reinforces our commitment to this community. We look forward to the unique and engaging applications that the MySpace Developer Platform will inspire.”

Slated for a March launch, the MySpace Developer Platform will be available for members in the MySpace Application Gallery. It will enable members to add Slide applications, such as FunWall and SuperPoke, to their home as well as profile pages

Just like all other MySpace Developer Platform applications, FunWall and SuperPoke will also be able to safely access publicly available profile information, which includes a user’s friend list, interests, photos & albums, video, along with status & mood. Slide applications will have dominance in the following five places within MySpace including:

  • A MySpace application profile (users can “friend” the apps)
  • Access to embed applications on the user homepage (inward facing – for you to see)
  • Access to embed applications on profiles (outward facing widget — for friends to see)
  • An application gallery listing
