Click2Message In Beta

7. January 2011

OLD POST FROM 3/26/2008

Exciting news! Click2Message is now in beta. It's really actually is Alpha but who cares. When you have a team of a few developers it really all works out to be the same thing. So what is this all about and what the heck is Click2Message?

Click2Message is focused on enabling voice communication in the social networking space. It allows you to put a little "widget" on your social profile. This widget allows someone to put in their cell phone or any other phone number and click call. What happens is some cool magic with the Broadsoft platform. Immediately you will get connected to the person who put the widget on their page. This allows you to talk to them without needing to know their number.

Perfect examples are long lost friends, colleagues and more. Currently Click2Message is in Beta so that means there are a lot of things that aren't quite there yet. However, I feel it's better for this application to be shaped by the users and not by the company. Yes, while it ultimately has to be adopted into the application, I believe in user interaction and feedback to make it what you want and have what you want.

So what is there to look forward to in the next couple of months?

Shhh... don't tell anyone just yet:

  • Visual Voicemail (meaning you can read your voicemails instead of listening to them. All thanks to simulscribe. this feature will cost... sorry)
  • Outbound calling (low cost outbound calling, meaning you can call out from the application)
  • Remind me (get pre-scheduled calls to your phone to alert you of an appointment or anything you choose it to be)
  • Blast a message (post out a audio file that your friends can listen to)

At least that's the general idea. There's actually a ton more ideas and cool features on the way.

So if this doesn't do the application justice then check it out on facebook.com!

It's currently in a private beta so once you install it you will need to go to http://www.click2message.com and put in a invitation code. The beta is open only to a limited amount of users doing this current phase, so don't wait to sign up. Invitation code is: BETAC2M

In case you are interested in any of the PR that's out there:

Until next time,
