PingMe… and then let’s chat.
The latest design from A team here at COG1, we’re proud to announce the launch of PingMe Messenger, the newest cross-platform messaging application aimed at giving the social world another portal to free personal and group messaging.
Similar to other group messaging apps, PingMe gives users the ability to send realtime messages to friends and family without incurring text messaging costs, similar to the act of sending a BBM on a BlackBerry phone. Once downloaded, the app allows users to connect with their friends through their telephone’s address book, Facebook, or the PingMe network. The registration process is fairly simple—your phone number is your user ID, and you don’t need a password or hard-to-remember PIN to connect with your friends.
PingMe features an opt-in geo-location functionality that lets friends find each other based on their location. It also utilizes push notifications to post status updates a news feed and PingMe tells you when someone sends you a message even when PingMe is closed.
- Within six months of launch:
- • Reached #18 in the Apple App Store
- • Over 1 million installs
