With its unique, visual interface, UberConference shows participants who’s on a call and who’s speaking at any given moment, provides document sharing through Box and Evernote, and gives all participants access to every other participant’s Google+, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook public social profiles. As one of the earliest adopters of the highly anticipated WebRTC standard, UberConference users can “dial into” UberConference calls directly from their Chrome browser. UberConference is also available for both iPhone and Android.

“UberConference delivers functionality and control through powerful yet easy-to-use tools that increase business productivity at significantly lower cost than conventional enterprise solutions,” said Craig Walker, CEO and co-founder of Firespotter Labs. “We are thrilled to be selected as one of the four startups to present at Enterprise Connect’s Innovation Showcase.”

Enterprise 2013 will focus on wireless, video, Unified Communications, WebRTC, SIP Trunking, and the Cloud. The Enterprise Connect Innovation Showcase is designed to feature innovative products and services from new and emerging start-up firms in these areas.

We’re pretty big fans of mobile here at Firespotter  – so far we’ve released 4 mobile apps in the last 18 months. So, when a great mobile conference like the sold-out D:Dive Into Mobile comes up, we had to be there. Where else can you get a line on where mobile technologies are going and hear from all of the movers and shakers in mobile in a jam-packed 2 days?

Hosted by Bay Area journalists Ina Fried and Liz Gannes, in collaboration with Kara Swisher and Walt Mossberg, D: Dive Into Mobile gave a bird’s-eye view of many of the emergent issues in the mobile space. Here are five big ones that stood out at the conference.

  • Facebook’s new CTO  Mike Schroepfer spoke to Facebook’s biggest mobile challenge –  following the migration of his company’s billion-plus users from the Web to mobile.
  • Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt gave the low-down  Google’s wide-ranging mobile efforts – from Android to Chrome, Admob to YouTube. In a separate talk, Google’s Jason Spero and Millennial Media’s Mollie Spilman went over the importance of tracking user behavior for mobile ads. Spero noted that mobile refers more to a specific context, rather than a use case.
  • Waze CEO Noam Bardin talked about his company’s subtle advantage over Google – they’ve got 44 million users and 70,000 volunteer map editors. So far, they’ve validated a billion and a half kilometers (about 932 million miles) of roads. Note: One of Craig’s favorite apps!
  • Intel’s Mike Bell and Microsoft’s Terry Myerson  – two brands not known for robust mobile  presence –  gave separate talks to argue why their company shouldn’t be counted out in the transition to the golden age of mobile strategies.
  • Movile CEO Fabricio Bloisi Rocha explained how the lower penetration of smartphones into Latin America market will be turned around in coming years by an increase Wi-Fi connections and cheaper prices.

Thanks again to D: All Things Digital founders Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher for hosting such an awesome conference. To stay on top of all of their mobile coverage, go here, and here’s the coverage of the entire conference.

imageDo you have international conference calls? Now people from all over the world can dial into your conferences with their phones.

Today, we’re happy to announce conference call international access numbers in over 40 countries across Europe, Asia and South America. Participants in ÜberConference calls can use these in-country local numbers to avoid expensive international calling rates when calling a US conference number. Additional country codes will be added in February.

We recently launched a feature that lets participants join an ÜberConference from their computer from anywhere in the world. Now people can also easily dial in from their phone with our international access numbers. After dialing the access number, they just punch in the conference call number, then PIN, and get connected.

This new international access number feature is available and included automatically at no extra charge for all ÜberConference Pro and Business accounts.  ÜberConference Free accounts can upgrade to Pro for just $10 a month to get a local number ($20 for toll free) and several other premium features such as larger conference sizes, recurring conferences, outbound dialing and more.

Check out the full list of countries with international access numbers, and our FAQs if you have questions on how they work.

We’ve just upgraded UberConference to High Definition (HD) audio.  Anyone who joins a conference call from their computer now sounds absolutely fantastic.  As if our visual interface wasn’t enough, now you’ll really want to connect to calls through your computer.

Call into your next conference call on Chrome to experience the difference. Schedule your call now!

For now, Google Chrome is required to enjoy Audio HD. We’re working on adding support for Firefox.  As more browsers support WebRTC, we’ll add them too.

Being outside of the US shouldn’t limit your ability to have a great conference call.

In order to make UberConference more accessible for our Pro users overseas, we’ve just added an international dial-in number for the Republic of Korea.

1. Check our supported countries and phone numbers.
2. Dial your local access code.
3. Enter the U.S conference call number followed by #.
4. You’re in.

Simple as that.
