GOGII, Inc. has launched textPlus 2.0, a new version of the nexgen text messaging application for iPhone and iPod touch. Now with usernames that serve as “text addresses”, textPlus 2.0 enables app-to-app free, unlimited texting anywhere in the world. Plus, in the U.S., friends on any text-enabled phone can now easily send messages to textPlus users by simply texting their username to 60611, the textPlus permanent short code.
New to users outside the U.S., textPlus 2.0 offers a convenient, cost effective alternative to international texting. As textPlus 2.0 usernames are accessible worldwide, textPlus users who have registered a username can send and receive text messages for free to and from other textPlus users, anywhere. So, a textPlus user on a WiFi network located in the United Kingdom can now engage in a username-to-username text conversation with another textPlus user in the United States, Japan, France or anywhere else in the world, for free. Additional new features of textPlus 2.0 include: shake to update messages, more sounds for Push Notifications, and user pages that offer texters an alternative starting point for conversations. The textPlus application is available at no charge, on a worldwide basis, from Apple's App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.
