Rethink the Way You Text with Emu Messenger

Most standard messaging apps do a pretty decent job. Yes they’re quite plain and featureless, often consisting of a simple conversation panel and a text box. But hey, what else does a text messaging app need? Well, quite a bit, according to XDA Forum Member gummihaf.

The developer behind Emu Messenger, gummihaf, made sure that the app packs a couple of fresh new features and functions that you would not normally see on your conventional messenger. What do I mean? Well for one, Emu Messenger has a ‘Marco-Polo’ feature, which allows you to share your location via Google Maps with your friend. This is a much easier alternative to giving directions over the phone. Furthermore, if you’re in a situation where typing may not be very convenient, Emu Messenger allows you to dictate your message and send it to your recipient. Additionally, if you received an untimely message and would like to view it at another time, swiping the message to the left in the conversation panel will allow you to resend the message at a later time as a reminder.

Emu Messenger, with its novel functions and features, is definitely a unique approach to the text messaging experience that not many default messaging apps, if not none at all, seem to offer. If you’ve ever felt your current messenger is lacking in some way, you may want to give Emu Messenger a whirl. If this is the case, head over to the application thread for more information.

We came to love this little virtual office, which sees messaging 24/7 due to the international nature of our team.
