Effective immediately, gottaTxt is available as a free download via
Google’s app store and enjoys a 4.5-star rating.
Our favorite Nokia/Symbian Developer Company has officially stepped over to the Android side with another useful app. The app is called “GottaTxt” and it is truly unique! I haven’t had the chance to test all of it’s features yet but I was able to test texting and geotagging. Next I will see how the “piggybacking” feature works. Having an encrypted text conversation sounds very comforting. Does Google Voice do that? Here is the press release via email:
Whether you’re meeting at the airport, for dinner, at a sporting event,
or just on your way home from work, don’t just send a message, send your
presence with your words. Only gottaTxt lets you send your location with
your message and updates it automatically.
Our market-leading GeoTag feature allows you to share your location with
friends or business associates. The moment a GeoTag has been sent, the
recipient see his own location along with all GeoTags presented on a
Google map. You choose how often your location will be updated, for how
long the GeoTag will be active, and whether to show low location in
“high” (+/- 10 meters) or “low” (+/- 1km) accuracy.
We have an additional array of amazing features:
Universal Compatibility – SMS Fall-back
You gain gottaTxt’s benefits even when some of your friends and
associates don’t also use it since gottaTxt works seamlessly with other
gottaTxt users and pre-gottaTxt users too. Other gottaTxt users will
receive your messages, around the world, through our network of
high-performance servers. Non-gottaTxt users will (automatically)
receive your messages via SMS. Of course, you can always use our nifty
invite system to enlighten your friends!
Ever returned from a tradeshow, only to have your spouse wail about you
being unreachable? gottaTxt takes care of that – the moment when your
phone is off-line or not available, the server will automatically
respond to incoming gottaTxt texts with a message of your choice.
Sadly, smartphones are also sold to jerks. Whether it is your family or
your ex – if they annoy you, gottaTxt has you covered. Messages get
ignored silently. If you so desire, the product will even send back an
educational SMS (text is configurable) to tell the offender to improve
Your privacy is protected by gottaTxt. It automatically encrypts your
message during transmission (so they are safe when sent over an open
WiFi network), and also while stored on your phone (so third-party
snooping software can’t read them).
Want your kids to be able to text without paying for text messaging (or
even for service)? As long as they have a WiFi connection they can send
and receive text messages (for free) by “piggybacking” on your phone.
Only gottaTxt offers this amazing feature.
The product is ad-free and is backed up by powerful servers to ensure reliability.
Frequent updates are planned to enhance functionality.
