Send Bananas to Your Friends
There are many messenger apps available for Android. They use our Gmail addresses or phone numbers to communicate with other devices and users. Almost all such apps look pretty much the same and serve pretty much the same purpose. Now, Imagine a situation where instead of messages with emoticons, you are sending bananas to your friends. This idea sounds funny, but it’s absolutely real thanks to XDA Forum Member pytel.
The Ultimate Communication Tool, as the Bananas app likes to call itself, sends bananas (instead of short messages) to your friends. You can greet your friends with “Hello Banana,” invite them for a party with “Party Banana,” or do whatever else you like. It’s pretty bananas. You are limited to only one word, so spread banana wisely. Empty messages are replaced with “Banana.” Using the application also gives you the opportunity to attain some proper knowledge about bananas, so after using it for a while you will become a banana master. Your banana friends are marked on the map. And you can see where they squashed the bananas.
Bananas is a simple, yet funny communications app. It’s a nice alternative to real messengers like Hangouts, Whats App, and that evil Facebook Messenger. You can find some bananas by visiting the
banana application thread. Don’t let other messengers drive you bananas!
