Company: Jongla Ltd
Jongla is a project that was launched in 2009 on Java and Symbian platforms under the name JonglaFree. Founded by Riku Salminen and Arto Boman.
Nevertheless, by the end of 2010, the developer team understood that these platforms are living out their last days and it was high time to make a switch to new ones.
In August 2012, the company removed all its official apps from all app stores, but promised that something big was coming instead.
In October of the same year, the team released Jongla IM app, whose improved version we use now.
In one of his interviews, Riku Salminen mentioned that Jongla was also working to create official accounts for brands that would use VoIP.
Jongla definitely deserves credit for making the first interactive stickers and the filter service for voice messages Sound Candy.
Now Jongla is a cross-platform app, which is constantly improving and making it users happy by providing them with new functionalities.
