Poking people on Facebook is just sooooo 2010. 2011 is all about jabbing friends! Or at least that’s what JabMe‘s developers think.
JabMe is an app that lets users send jabs to their friends alongside fun sound effects. Using Push Notiications, it’s unlimited with a plethora of different sounds and jab actions. Jabs can be anything from a Kung Fu Kick jab to a Burp or a kind hearted Happy Birthday.
There’s a game element to it, too, with GameCenter Leaderboards helping users keep track of the highest number of jabs they’ve inflicted on their friends. A Jab Back action means it’s pretty easy to up the jab count and fast.
Once bored of the free supply of jab actions, users can then purchase other packs for $0.99 a pack.
It’s certainly quirky but hopefully JabMe will make for a fun messaging service for those who like to be in regular virtual contact with friends.
It’s out now.
