TextAmerica Blog used for Xmas wishlist
As the sales of camera phones soar they are beginning to find practical uses. Kids are picking items off the shelf, posing for a picture taken with a camera phone, and then posting it online to their personalized wish list. The wish list then gets emailed out to friends and family ensuring the wish list owner gets exactly what they want.

A few examples include 'Daniel's Wish List' and 'Nicole's Wish List'.

"When you have a picture of what someone want it's a lot easier to get it right" says textamerica founder Chris Hoar. "It's also a lot of fun for the kids, it makes them feel as if Christmas has come early, plus it's a free service and very simple to use" said Hoar. "You don't have to have a camera phone, you can use a digital camera then just email pictures to your wish list or upload them direct from your pc".

Textamerica's primary service allows users post camera phone images to direct to the internet to a 'Moblog' which is a mobile blog or in other words an online photo diary.
