Mobile Minute: Group Texting on Android
GOGII just announced the launch of textPlus on the Android Market. The texting application was previously available only on the Apple App Store.
The textPlus app brings sponsor-supported free and unlimited messaging to Android users and allows them to have instant group “conversations” in text with friends on most U.S. carriers.
textPlus allows both old-style texting (one-to-one conversations) and what GOGII refers to as "next-generation" texting which include a richer, more engaging experience through instant group conversations. The "reply-all" feature, similar to email, turns texting essentially into a chat room.
“We’ve already seen overwhelming consumer response to the textPlus app in the Apple App Store thanks to the millions of consumers who’ve embraced our game-changing features - from casual texters to the staggering number of consumers who text as their primary mode of communication,” said Scott Lahman, CEO and co-founder of GOGII.
“We’re pleased to make textPlus available to Android users, and offer even more text-happy mobile consumers this tricked-out, next generation texting service.”
