Send messages that stand out from the crowd
WANT to send messages that stand out from the crowd? The maybe it is time to check out Ultratext.
This is an App for phones that turns text messages into colourful animated GIFs in order to win them some attention when they are received.
When read, the words appear one at a time in large characters set into brightly coloured blocks.
The idea is to make social messages a little more fun and interesting than boring old plain text and to make communications a bit harder to ignore.
‘ Sorry, I am not sure that I got your text’ is a well worn excuse that is tougher to roll out when the incoming missive is not easy to overlook.
Ultratext will run on Androids and iPhones and there is also a version for use with Facebook Messenger.
Messages are sent via MMS rather than the SMS used by plain text messages, though.
Unlike SMS texts, it is possible to include photos and clip art into Ultratext generated dispatches.
These and each word are all encapsulated into the same size of coloured, round- edged, quote- shaped rectangles, displaying one at a time in a rolling sequence when the message is read.
If you are struggling to imagine this, picture clicking on an incoming message and seeing the word ‘ FANCY’ in bright blue quote box, followed by a black ‘ A’ in a bright yellow one, then ‘ DRINK’ in a deep red, replaced by a picture of a bottle of Prosecco and finally the word ‘ TONIGHT?’ in a sunny orange box.
To get a better idea, key ‘ Ultratext Messenger Demo’ into You Tube and then play the top search result.
