Mobisoap Project

Not sure what a mobisoap is? It is a made-for-mobile interactive soap opera:)  See below for more on So Like Life  – SA’s first ever mobisoap.

There is also an interesting article on SouthAfrica.info about SoLikeLife. You can become a fan of SoLikeLife on FaceBook too:) You can read about the characters and see pics of Brad’s band:)

Enjoy watching a promo of So Like Life and some of its mobisodes on YouTube.  I have also added links to the promo and the first mobisode below:

What makes a mobisoap a mobisoap and how has the soapie form been adapted to suit a mobile medium? Remember, people watch these mobisodes on their cellphones and also, do you think it’s too expensive for the majority of SA cellphone users? Perhaps try watching one episode on youtube on your cellphone and see how much it costs if you can.
