[prMac.com] Phoenix, Arizona - Frog Army has announced YoFrog 1.0, their group chat solution for iPhone and iPod Touch. Designed specifically to take advantage of the iPhone's unique abilities and interface, YoFrog is a private group chat client. Create rooms, invite friends and talk in privacy. No email address required, no verification emails, no hassle. Just sign in and chat. Don't be limited by the one-to-one paradigm of SMS. Be social!
Great for social teens and young adults alike, YoFrog sports an easy-to-use interface with well understood chat room concepts. It works on all iPhones and iPod touch devices, even those who never upgraded from iPhone OS 2.0. Chat members can invite as many friends as they wish; make a room for the entire school or just a buddy. Virtually unlimited rooms, messages and friends can be set up, with no per-message fees or limits.
"Version 1.0 is a solid basic offering meant to get users started on group communication" said David McCuistion, co-founder of Frog Army. "We felt public chat was too noisy and one-to-one chat too limiting, so the future will be groups communicating together both in public and in private. The YoFrog server is Linux and Java-based, and incredibly scalable for the number of users we're expecting. We'll be launching on Android in a few months too, allowing iPhone and Android users to chat together as well".
With YoFrog, members can choose their own message color for personality, and quickly switch between rooms to maintain multiple conversations. Rooms are invite-only to preserve privacy, but easy for any member to invite someone else. And so that buddies can catch up later on, messages are saved even when they're not around.
