TextOne application is intended to be a simplified superset of the standard XMPP protocol, specially designed for mobile usage.
TextOne application is available on iPhone and Android.
Being based on a standard protocol means that you can tap into the power federation. What’s this strange thing? It means that you can send messages to users and receive replies even if they are using a different XMPP messaging service than the one you are using.
Quick demonstration with TextOne iPhone app in version 2.0:
- Log in to TextOne with your account
- Think about a friend using Gtalk chat service
- Send him a message to its address
- Wait that he accepts you as a contact, since Gmail requires that to receive messages: you will be notified when that happens
- Start chatting together
See TextOne in action:
- New message:
- Gtalk address entered:
- First message sent:
- Your contact has accepted you:
- Go on messaging:
Simple, isn’t it ?
What does it means for TextOne? It means that this beautiful texting application is not closed like all of its counterparts. It is open to the world. In the long run, it will make a huge difference.
