Company / App Name: HangMessage
What does it do?
Location-based mobile messaging app where users can hang messages in the air at specific locations for their friends to receive once they visit there. Friends can use their augmented reality camera-view display to find the unread messages.
Why do we need it?
It adds a surprise and fun factor for both recipients and senders. Senders await for their friend to one day visit that location where they can pick up the message and recipients have to go to that location to unlock the surprise message.
Who is it for?
Anyone who enjoys texting. HangMessage is a great way to surprise a friend or loved one with a message pinned to a memorable location or even send yourself a grocery list so once you enter the store, you will be reminded of what you need.
What makes it stand out from the crowd?
HangMessage allows users to hang messages at specific places for specific friends whereas most location-based messaging apps focus on chat room-like environments between strangers with similar GPS locations where anyone can leave and enter.
To continue to make it more social. HangMessage already integrated Facebook and Foursquare where users can hang messages for friends at places they check in to. Soon will allow users to purchase virtual gifts to hang for their friends.
