We have been working very hard on the new version of TextMe for Android. Our goal has simply been to build our best product to date.
Within the TextMe team, we are very heavy users of Dropbox. Just like the other more than 175 million people who use Dropbox to make their life easier, we rely on Dropbox to manage both our personal and work life and be more efficient. In the last few weeks, we thought hard about we could do to leverage the Dropbox platform to make the TextMe experience better and decided to focus on a simple use case. With our new integration of the Dropbox Chooser, TextMe users can share their Dropbox content via text message (real sms) with anyone in the world, directly from the TextMe app on their Android phone. Of course, they can also use the feature to share their Dropbox content with other TextMe users. Our users will not be limited by what’s on their device anymore (or any specific device for that matter). We think we have made sharing photos and videos a lot easier and a lot faster. The same feature will, of course, come to iOS soon.
We think this integration makes it dead simple to access your documents on Dropbox and share them instantly (via text message) with anyone, no matter what phone, app or OS they are using.
Along with the neat Dropbox integration, our new Android app enjoyed a massive upgrade with lots of goodies we are proud to offer to our users.
- Full native support for Android tablets with a brand new UI for tablets
- Native and Free Video Messages
- Users can now use their Free TextMe credits to send SMS to more than 140 countries in the world
- Massive improvements to our overall experience
- New UI for our Android app on smartphones
- Many more ways to earn free TextMe credits by watching videos
- Lots of cool Android widgets to personalize your TextMe experience
- Receive your TextMe messages on Google Glass or Pebble watch
Thank you to the more than 12 Million of you who have signed up for TextMe since we launched the app. We will continue to raise the bar and make sure TextMe offers the best universal communication experience in the world.
For those of you who will be at DBX as well, please come and say hi!
