Smith Micro's Sock Puppets Links Into Facebook Messenger
Aliso Viejo-based Smith Micro said today that it has connected its Sock Puppets app, which lets users create their own, talking sock puppets, with the popular Facebook Messenger app. Smith Micro said the integration allows to create and share sock puppet messages with their friends. Sock Puppets lets users create "sock puppet" shows, with cute, on-screen sock puppets who automatically lip synch to your voice. The software also lets users share those same sock puppet videos on Facebook and YouTube. Until recently, Smith Micro was better known for its system utilities and things like Stuffit, but in the last year or so has focused instead on its suite of animation and 3D graphics tools.
