The ever-increasing popularity of apps has encouraged developers to come up with intuitive programs to help people communicate in different and easy ways.
From text messaging to multimedia messaging, and now messaging apps, the mode of communicating with our friends and families is ever-changing.
Today there is a plethora of apps that enable us not only to send text, but also share cartoon characters, emoticons, disappearing selfies, and much more. Though Whatsapps and Facebook messengers presently dominate this segment, there are a host of other apps that let us connect with our dear ones in a funny yet instinctive fashion.
Below is a list of unique messaging apps that aim to make our life a lot easier:
- App which does not require an Internet Connection
The FireChat app, specifically designed for iPhone users, helps to connect with people even when there is no internet connection or cell signal. The Multipeer Connectivity Framework in iOS 7 connects the devices of users within a maximum of 100 feet with the help of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and peer-to-peer connections. However, when there are many people logged on to the app within a close range at the same time, the network may become larger and robust.
- App that lets a drawing do the talking
The recently launched Drawft app enables users to communicate via drawings, and that too, in real-time. The mechanism used is that when one draws, the other views the sketch, and vice versa. This app comes in handy for all those special moments when simple emoticons don’t serve the purpose.
- App that eliminates the need for a full conversation
Sending Yo on the Yo app is a simple & great way of letting the other person know that they are in our thoughts! The funny part is that the app doesn’t do anything apart from letting the users exchange ‘Yos!’ It is definitely a great means of keeping in touch and is particularly helpful when one doesn’t have the time to indulge in a full-blown conversation.
- App that self-destructs messages
It often happens that we wished we could take back a message, right after hitting the ‘send’ tab. Thanks to a unique messaging app that enables users to remotely delete messages sent to others. Yes! You read it right! Christened as Ansa, this app also allows both the parties to chat off the record. This implies that the messages exchanged will self-destruct within 60 seconds. This software is a boon for all those who keep worrying about their private messages being read by an unintended individual.
Apart from the above-mentioned apps, there are several other one-of-a-kind programs that embrace simplicity while communication. If you know of any out-of-the-box feature which you would want to have in your messaging app, then do share with us in the comments box!
