Social messaging app just.me last Friday launched on Android amidst plans to expand their over 250, 000 user base. The android version is currently available for free in the Google Play Store. The app (version 1.0) will however only work on android phones and tablets running Ice Cream Sandwich or above. The android launch now makes the app freely available on 3 major platforms; iOS, Android and the Web.
Just.me allows smartphone users to expand the messaging abilities of their phone with powerful features and unlimited features. We took a look at the Play Store to establish what this app does for users:
- Provides you with a cocktail of the best texting, email and social networking apps all in one place
- Allows you to include multiple photos, video, and voice messages in a single message
- Opens you up to free, unlimited social messaging
- Integrates your phonebook and allows all your contacts to receive messages from you, even if they don’t have the app themselves
- Allows you to save messages as ‘private’ for your eyes only
- Puts you in total control of who sees your messages and media each time you send or publish a message
The android app, a significant step by the venture-capital funded Silicon Valley Company, supports 32 languages, and will increase its ability to compete with other social sharing or messaging apps on the smartphone market.
iOS and Web Enhancements
Just.me has also promised further enhancements to their iOS and web applications. The flagship iOS app has been updated to version 1.1, and now features a more appealing interface for some of its processes. The updates to the iOS app are expected to deliver a native iPad application and another iPhone app that will make full use of Apple’s new iOS 7.
On the web frontier, just.me has updated their app to support the Firefox OS and other rich HTML 5 browsers. Users of the web app will also now be able to reply to messages, a feature previously not included.
