With 3.7 Billion Messages Under Its Belt, GOGII’s textPlus Launches Picture Messaging & Face Texts
At first glance, the stats from free text messaging startup GOGII and its textPlus application sound like they're too big by an order of magnitude: 3.7 billion messages sent since June 2009. 8.5 million downloads. 23 million phone numbers in the network. But they're real, and they're a big business. Today the company is launching two new features that make the textPlus experience even richer, with support for sending images and a nifty new feature called 'Face Text'. The first feature is self-explanatory: you can attach images to your outbound text messages and send them for free. The second feature, called Face Text, is related, but it comes with a twist. Upon activating the feature, textPlus will take a photo using your phone's front-facing camera whenever you hit the send button, allowing you to quickly attach facial expressions whenever you send a message (think of it as emoticons meeting the photo booth — see the screenshot above).
