I recently started up a couple GroupMe groups on my BlackBerry Bold 9930. But realized it wasn’t quite up to par with the other platforms yet. Well as of Monday that all changed! GroupMe v3.0.1 is now available for BlackBerry including all 7.0 devices. And it’s quite good!
For me I see GroupMe as an awesome way to connect with everyone, including developers, friends, industry leaders and more who don’t all share the same platform. A fresh place to get together and connect, and it gets better every update.
NEW Features in GroupMe v3.0
— Questions (Beta) Ask a question to spark a conversation. Use it to plan a night out, chat about something with your friends as it happens, or whatever else you want! Direct it to a few people or an entire group, or even post it to Twitter and Facebook.
— Direct Messaging Send a message directly to another GroupMe user—because sometimes, you don’t need to say it to the whole group. Just tap on a user’s avatar anywhere you see it, and have a one-on-one conversation without ever leaving the app.
— Wed Chat Now you can participate in conversations on GroupMe from the comfort of your desk. When you log in to our website, every group and question you’re participating in will be waiting for your next message, just like in our app. Plus, the website is optimized for mobile browsers, so if your smartphone doesn’t already have the GroupMe app available, you can chat for free wherever you are.
If your the type of user that really enjoys making connections, or getting your groups together to get things done more efficiently, I suggest giving GroupMe a whirl. Even though I prefer everyone used BlackBerry, we are living in a tech fed world and not everyone uses the same device anymore. GroupMe is compatible with BlackBerry, iPhone, Android, Windows Phone 7, and any phone that has text messaging for that matter. You just can’t say that about other messaging applications
And now since the acquisition GroupMe & Skype plan to bring some awesome treats to the table. The function and quality of their products are already awesome. So what are you waiting for? Go snatch yourself a FREE copy for all your devices/platforms and get a group together!
