It has also introduced the capability to share these picture cards via WhatsApp and also email. The company has also introduced a virtual currency which lets users buy interesting pictures at micro-payments.
The company had been noticing the growing usage of WhatsApp to share Happy Birthday messages. Most users posted plain vanilla messages. We wanted to change this and give users a tool to send unique and personalized messages to their friends.
"If the birthday boy gets a message that is different, he will smile and remember both the sender and the thot," says Mr. Arvind Jha, Founder & CEO of Pariksha Labs. "Users can now choose from a variety of card templates and also customize the message they want to send, both on FaceBook and Whatsapp. Users can scale images, choose font, color, size and location for their messages. We want to help our users connect better with their social circles with our app," Mr. Arvind Jha added.
ThotofU already allows users to quickly see friends who have birthdays this day/week/month. It is being used by people from across the world to send both birthday greetings and any casual greeting, message as the occasion demands.
"The company has also introduced the concept of a marketplace for images. We know that users don't want to pay exorbitantly for digital images. But they don't mind paying small amounts for unique images. We are offering a life-time purchase of images for as slow as Rs. 5/- per image. Users can buy images and use them infinite number of times," said Mr. Jha. "The company has introduced their own virtual point system in the app for this."
The app has categories such as humor, music, sports, fashion, travel, food/drink and more. Each category has a collection of interesting images that can be used by the users.
