Blrt is a 2016 Webby Awards Honoree

We’re downright chuffed to announce that our collaboration platform Blrt has been named a 2016 Webby Awards Honoree in the Mobile Sites & Apps Productivity category!

This makes Blrt one of the Top 11 Productivity Apps in the world, an honour that comes hot on the heels of Blrt’s Top 5 Finalist finish at the 2015 OzAPP Awards for best app in Australia.

Honorees like Blrt are setting the standard for innovation and creativity on the Internet.

About Blrt

Blrt helps you get your point across quickly by allowing you to talk, point and draw over images, documents and websites. The resulting video-like recording is called a Blrt.

Your Blrts require much less bandwidth than video and can be shared with anyone on mobile or desktop. This makes Blrt ideal for both collaboration and the creation and sharing of dynamic content, as public Blrts can be embedded into any webpage.

Once recorded, Blrts are stored in the cloud and are exchanged with others in a conversation-like fashion. A record is kept of the exchange, and new parties and media can be added at any time.

Blrt shifts time and place, allowing users in a conversation to participate in their own time. In an era where activity-based working and distributed teams are commonplace, Blrt is revolutionising the way people interact to get things done.
