groupme

GroupMe is a pretty cool company that was born out of TechCrunch Disrupt. The company created a simple way to create SMS-based groups so people could easily communicate with and manage their social circles. Currently, the app uses the Twilio API, but it could leverage other APIs such as BBM, in order to add more contacts to the group and communicate outside of the US. The company has announced recently that their GroupMe app is now available on BlackBerry in beta form.

GroupMe is available on Android, iPhone and BlackBerrys running OS 5.0 and up. To download the app OTA, hit this link from your BlackBerry browser.

Derek Ting, CEO of Enflick, Talks About Their 8M User-Base IM Client

I sat down with Derek Ting, CEO of Enflick, the makers of PingChat! to talk about their 8M strong app. The guys at Enflick have a strong team and the founders are all in their early 20s. Not too long ago, the company announced some metrics about their PingChat! app that are incredibly impressive.

One of the more interesting aspects of PingChat!, which we discuss in the video, is that the fact that Enflick is able to support a network of 8M users sending media to each other with just 2 revenue sources. The in-app ads in their iOS and Android builds, as well as some revenue from another app they sell, is all the money they need for infrastructure. A great example of leveraging ads and a product portfolio to grow your business.

Keep in mind that while this is posted on YouTube, there’s not much to see in the video; it’s all in the audio. If there’s any interest in these, I can post more with other companies in the near future. Hit the jump to check out an infographic about PingChat’s success.
