I am no tech-savvy mum and, in fact, I got my very first smart phone only last year. Although I was not too keen on the latest gadget trends and the many apps that come and go since the advent of revolutionary mobile technology, it seems inevitable especially when I realized how ideal it would be to have this technology handy. These trendy mobile apps are also very helpful in keeping contact with relatives and friends far away, as well as with people that I constantly work with online through my blogs. It does pay to always be connected and to be in the know. Plus I am really enjoying learning all about the many different apps I can install on my phone and use them to work to my advantage. It is also a delight to know how these apps can make an otherwise busy mum’s day lighter and manageable as they accompany me to different tasks and errands that I have to finish throughout the day.
One of the apps that are most useful to mums like me is WeChat and I am really excited to share that I shall be collaborating with them here on the blog. WeChat recently came out with 6 new exciting features that are bound to make the mobile scene sizzle and elevate the mobile app experience a notch higher.
WeChat in a nutshell
WeChat, a mobile social communication app designed for smartphone users, is the world’s fastest growing social app with over 100 million registered accounts worldwide. WeChat continues to revolutionize the way people connect, communicate and share with each other through the fun and dynamic ways they come up with to bring together social communication, messaging, and gaming into one impeccable and interactive experience, while providing highly-customizable privacy and security settings at the same time.
WeChat is easily an all-in-one app enabling its users to add friends with a number of innovative features that include phonebook, the reliable and highly-convenient QR code scanning, and the location-based services “Hold Together,” “People Nearby,” and “Shake.” The mobile app platform also facilitates real-time social interaction through its “Walkie Talkie,” “Voice Call,” and “Video Call” features. Sharing photos with friends and group of friends within a closed social network is also easy-peasy with its “Moments” feature. While the hippest users will always find something of interest in a bevy of fun animated emoticons to make expressing emotions easier and convenient at the WeChat Sticker Shop, as the gamers can always play and challenge their friends through fun and interactive games at WeChat Games.
WeChat, supported on data networks and Wi-Fi, has truly revolutionized the way we stay connected with friends, wherever and whenever we may be.
