If messaging your friends and family seems a bit old hat, you may want to check out a new “randomised” messaging app which is taking the iTunes App Store charts by storm.
Already downloaded more than 400,000 times, Fling allows users to send text, videos and images which are then received by up to 50 random fellow users across the globe.
‘Flingers’ can check where their messages have landed thanks to the apps inbuilt map which drops pins in countries where users have received them.
The app has already reached number one in Sweden and is one of the top five social networking apps in the New Zealand, Australia, Denmark and Ireland stores.
Founder and CEO of Fling, Marco Nardone, commented: “The launch of Fling demonstrates the pure enjoyment of meeting new people anywhere in the world, and the thrill of receiving cool, quirky content from people you don’t yet know.
“The app is a bit of pot luck – you never know what you’ll get each day, but all it takes is finding something in common with a fellow flinger to start a great conversation. With its impressive first month figures, Fling effortlessly combines private messaging, randomised global distribution, and intrigue into modern day communication.”
