[prMac.com] Sydney, Australia - Mobile software company Kooee Messaging has today unveiled Kooee, a location-enhanced messaging platform for iPhone, iPad, Mac, and public API. Kooee has been designed as a cross-platform messaging client and leverages the GPS inside mobile platforms to help people connect with their friends like never before.
Kooee focuses on connecting with friends, letting users exchange messages, their current location, and requesting the location of others at just a tap of a button, making it easier than ever to ask the question "where are you?".
"Kooee aims to be an open, cross platform messaging system that leverages location to improve everyday life. No matter what platform someone uses, we aim to be there", said Matthew Roberts, co-founder and lead software engineer.
On top of the official set of applications, the public API gives developers the power to leverage the full feature-set of Kooee within their own applications, at little to no cost to the developer. "We encourage everyone to work with the Kooee platform, whether you want to build a full Kooee client for a platform not officially supported, or an add-on to the platform utilizing the ease of sending messages and locations to users", Matthew said.
Kooee for iPhone and iPad is available from today on Apple's App Store, Kooee for Mac is a free download from the Kooee website, and the full API documentation can be found on the Kooee website.

Kooee Messaging is focused on creating a next-generation messaging platform that encompasses all mobile computing systems.
