- There are messaging apps that are devoted to solving clichéd, but ever so important human problems like loneliness. Who’s Down is a messenger that will help you find company to pass the time at the movies, museum or modern art gallery. This communication app was created to give us a quick and easy opportunity to learn what our friends are up to or find new company for a joint trip. Google’s new product may be a lot like Swarm, Find My Friends, but, as we know, first appearance is often deceptive. This app lets you set a deadline on event offers, change your personal status or just chat. It’s pretty obvious that the new product will be in demand among the easily persuaded and light-footed teenagers.
- Like so many other products on the market, ooVoo is betting on fun communication. A couple of days ago the app rolled out an interesting feature – the possibility to use animated 3D characters that will appear instead of you as you make video calls. By no means is this function new, but the amount of available skins combined with the possibility to recognize emotions really did the trick. In connection with this, project CEO Robert Jackman claims that their video chat will allow people to express themselves in a creative and sophisticated way thanks to the app’s mechanics. iOS and Android users can already go ahead and try out the app for themselves.
- Snapchat has once again reaffirmed that it is all about updates and revolutionary ideas. To elaborate, Snapchat collaborated with the marketing division of the studio that released The Peanuts Movie. As a result, Snapchat presented a Sponsored Lens that offers users a way to take branded cheerful selfies with Snoopy and Woodstock. Such cooperation is convenient, since the average age of a Snapchat user is around the same as that of the film’s target audience. We can only applaud the number of people that were successfully targeted by this campaign. Anyway, Snapchat isn’t showing any signs of slowing down its expansion processes. Moreover, it has reached a new level of cooperation with brands.
