A messaging service with GPS options
Although there are umpteen messaging services available, there always be who can improve them a little bit, and that's what Pinch's developers should have thought at some time. That's the main premise of Pinch, which adds to the usual messaging features a few GPS-related options in order to make the difference from its competitors.
These GPS options allow to add your location to all your messages and pinpoint places on a map to show where you have been or where you'd want to be. It may not be enough to change your usual messaging service, but it's a great addition anyway. Some carriers also allow to use Pinch with non-Pinch users, but only in certain countries, which would be a groundbreaking feature when implemented worldwide.
Therefore, a messaging service as good as any other and with a few additional interesting features.
Pinch is a FREE, easy- to- use, highly engaging; cross platform phone Messenger service that will
change the way you interact with friends forever. It has location based mobile social networking
features integrated for greater fun. With Pinch Group Messaging, instant group communication
has never been easier! Also send free messages to your non Pinch friends* and chat in new exciting
ways. So switch from SMS to Pinch and chat for FREE with your Pinch buddies across handset
platforms & even those who are not on Pinch*
WHY USE PINCH ?
★ NO HIDDEN COST: Once you and your friends download the application, you can use it to chat
as much as you want. Send as many messages a day to your Pinch friends for free! Pinch uses your
Internet connection: 3G/GPRS or Wi-Fi when available.
★ LOCATION BASED MESSAGING - Locate friends nearby on maps using location pins. Get directions
to meet them. Register places travelled. Share social updates on the move.
★ GROUP CHAT: Enjoy group conversations with your contacts by adding unlimited number of
friends in a single group.
★ MULTIMEDIA: Send Video & Images to make your messaging with friends more exciting
★ NO INTERNATIONAL CHARGES: Just like there is no added cost to send an international email,
there is no cost to send Pinch messages internationally. Chat with your friends all over the world as
long as they have Pinch installed and avoid those international SMS costs.
★ SAY NO TO PINS AND USERNAMES: Why even bother having to remember yet another PIN or
username? Pinch works with your phone number, just like SMS would, and integrates flawlessly with
your existing phone address book.
★ NO NEED TO ADD BUDDIES: Your Address Book is used to automatically connect you with your
contacts. Your contacts who already have Pinch messenger will be automatically displayed as your
Pinch contacts. Also for partner carriers, you could use Pinch to send SMS messages to non Pinch
friends at a very nominal cost *
★ AND MUCH MORE: Chatting with friends includes read receipts, picture sharing, hundreds of
emoticons and much more!
* This feature available only for airtel users in India currently.
Completely refreshed design and functionality! Awesome interface with all the same features (and more!) bundled into one application. Watch this space, much more to come!
