A new and hefty update has just been released for video texting app, Glide.
The app now offers tabbed navigation, making it easy to switch between friends, chats, and more. You can view when your friends were last active, as well as add distinctive names to personalize and better identify your group chats.
Alongside that, users can now create personal profile pages for themselves, as well as easily forward messages to other chats or share via email/SMS and various social networks.
The update is available now from the App Store and Glide is a free download.
Text messaging has become an important part of the day-to-day relationships for millions of people. For some, it’s a primary form of communication and helps people keep in touch at times when calls can’t be made. But text messaging isn’t as personal as a face-to-face conversation or even a phone call. Feel Me, a soon-to-be-released messaging app, aims to add a little more “feeling” to phone messaging.
The app displays, in real time, where the person at the other end of the message is touching the screen. Users can see each others fingers tapping at the virtual keyboard or just feeling out for a touch reply. In addition to the visual cues displayed when someone is touching the screen, a vibration or sound can be played when the two people are touching the same area to mimic the feeling that they’re actually touching each other.
While the app is currently functional, it hasn’t been released yet. On the Feel Me official websites, potential users can sign up to be notified when the app is released. We look forward to taking a look at this one when it comes out.
Some people are slow to adopt the idea of using a touchscreen keyboard over a physical one. I’ve even met people that are so attached to their old, flip phones and numeric texting that they don’t want to move to an actual keyboard on a phone. MultiTap Text allows users to take a step back in mobile history to the days of T9 and numeric texting.
Users can export the text they create in MultiTap Text via email, SMS, or simply copy the text to the clipboard. The app features an easy-to-use interface, T9 typing, and a menu with various options users are familiar with from older phones (Abc, ABC, abc, etc).
This app is perfect for those texters that became pros at T9 and don’t want to lose out on those skills by switching to an iPhone.
MultiTap Text was released on April 1st and is available for $0.99. Check out the video below.
