New York, NY (PRWEB) February 17, 2011
For the mobile generation, keeping in touch with friends while on the go can still be a surprisingly difficult task—it seems everyone is on a different device or carrier. Most have little choice but to resort to SMS text messaging, but texting charges can rack up quickly, and there’s no way to know when—or even if—your message was received.
Introducing LiveProfile, the fast, free and easy way to stay connected with friends on any Android, iPhone or BlackBerry device. LiveProfile combines the ease and convenience of a real-time mobile messenger with social-style profiles, pictures, videos, status updates and more.
A better alternative to SMS text messaging, LiveProfile allows users to communicate with lightning-fast message delivery and reliability. Unlike text messaging, LiveProfile displays when messages are delivered, read, and even when the recipient is typing a response, making it feel closer to a live conversation.
“Text messaging is slow and unreliable. It can take minutes for a single text message to be delivered and you don't know if it was delivered until the other person responds,” said LiveProfile Co-founder and CEO Phil Karl. “LiveProfile fixes that problem by providing a highly reliable messaging system with more features that performs up to 100 times faster than texting.”
As a social utility, LiveProfile also integrates with popular social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. But, unlike these very public platforms, LiveProfile is only available on mobile devices, This provides a more closed and private network of friends, allowing users to share more than they normally would on traditional social networks. Group features are coming soon, which will allow communication to multiple friends simultaneously, still for free and in real time.
LiveProfile fills the void for smart phone users who don’t have access to a unified mobile messenger, allowing users to communicate across carriers and platforms. And, LiveProfile works anywhere in the world: users can keep in touch with family and friends overseas without costly international texting charges.
“We've been experiencing explosive growth, primarily from people sharing the app with friends, and we expect this trend to continue, especially as the Verizon iPhone launch helps to transform the already fast-changing mobile landscape,” Karl said. “LiveProfile breaks through one of the final remaining barriers to fast, reliable, and socially enabled communication between mobile devices of all types. This really blows the doors to real-time communications wide open by putting the world in your pocket.”
