AppTones, The Sound of Messages has launched version 1.0.5 of their social networking iPhone app, an upgrade based on user feedback that features enhanced chat functionality and a more intuitive user experience.
“We listened to our users and rolled out this new version that makes the messaging process a lot simpler,” says Gabriel Marro, AppTones Chief Architect. “For example, we have a chat function now, where you can select your sound and icon directly from the chat page.”
Users find AppTones to be an exciting substitute for traditional text messaging – it is the only social networking iPhone app to send and receive iMedia Messages. Message packs include pre-recorded sounds and icons and pre-written lines of text that can be combined to send humorous or dramatic messages at a single touch. Users can also write their own text, combining them with sounds and icons or not as they choose. With the new chat functionality, all the features are available on one page, which also shows your previous conversations with that contact. In this new format, composition, sound selection and pairing are simple.
"With AppTones, you can say 'I love you', 'happy birthday', 'good luck', and much more in a unique and unexpected way that is sure to grab someone's attention," Wolfgang Haselwander, AppTones Content Guru, said.
Another highlight - because AppTones works through the phone's browser, users can send and receive unlimited texts, even internationally, for free. And sharing with friends is easy; AppTones automatically connects users with other AppTones users in their contact list, and makes it simple to invite friends to join them.
“We are really excited about this new version,” explains Wolfgang Haselwander, “because it makes AppTones even easier to use, and even more fun.”
Version 1.0.5 is free for a limited time, but will soon be priced at $1.99. Download directly to your iPhone from the App Store, or online at iTunes. For more details, visit the AppTones website at http://apptones.net.
