Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 05, 2014
There is no dearth of new messaging apps getting launched these days, especially, after Facebook’s $19 billion acquisition of WhatsApp, each claiming to have features that outsmart the other. Xpress Yourself, a no-nonsense convenience messaging app, is quietly making its presence felt among the expanding tribe of mobile social networkers with its unique usability design and strong adherence to privacy ethics. What no other messaging app had thought of, Xpress Yourself has.
Among the many cool features that Xpress Yourself can boast of, what makes it really stand apart is the ability of the user to hold conversations with more than one friend without navigating away from the messaging context. “Think of it this way, while other messaging apps have messaging functionalities to send text and multimedia available for each conversation, Xpress has a window equipped with all these and more messaging functionalities, to which the desired conversation can be brought in with a simple tap of an avatar appearing on the screen’s ‘avatar strip’. The avatar strip is nothing but a mini-representation of your contacts list. This aids the user to stay within the conversation context and switch between conversations without ever having to leave the screen”, Jenson George, cofounder of Letsxprs, the company that developed Xpress Yourself, explains.
He goes on to add, “We knew that the avatar strip will eat into the conversation space but the sheer convenience of making different conversations outweighs the disadvantage of the reduced real estate. Now even with Apple moving towards big screen iPhones and phablets, I think, we are on the right track. When people are using their 5+ inch phones for playing games and watching videos, why not offer a better experience for messaging.”
The messaging interface looks beautifully laid out with all the details the user is looking for – time stamp, delivery status and the date. Strategically placed icons help you to send any multimedia attachment or turn any type of message into a disappearing message with ease. Xpress Yourself takes disappearing or ephemeral messages a step further by allowing the user to turn any message into a disappearing message with just a flick of the finger. It is not just photos; it could be text, videos or even audio gossips.
Asked about how Xpress Yourself handles privacy, Jenson says, “Xpress takes explicit permission from the user before it accesses her address book. Also, it is not mandatory to allow your address book to be uploaded to our servers to start using Xpress. And when your address book is accessed to find out who else among your contacts are Xpress users, that information is never retained on our servers.” Xpress Yourself has a ‘passcode’ lock feature too, which adds extra security when the device is shared with someone.
Xpress Yourself allows users to set up groups on the go and extends messaging experience to the web by allowing users to send Web to Phone messages by logging in to their accounts at letsxprs.com.
Though mobile messaging space seems crowded, users have always been looking for a secure app that respects their privacy and is more than just a messaging utility. Xpress Yourself aims to conquer that space by providing an aesthetically pleasing and easy to use interface along with unparalleled privacy protection and features.
