BeMe: New, fun way to communicate via SMS

April 6, 2012

If you’ve always wanted a richer alternative to your Android phone’s drab and limited SMS interface, then BeMe messenger just might be the right fit for you. With this cross-platform messenger, you can communicate in real-time with all your friends, regardless of whatever phone network they may be on, as long as they’re on a Wi-Fi, 3G, or 4G connection. The app integrates seamlessly with your phone’s infrastructure and offers a host of features and functionalities to cater to the needs of today’s mobile messaging enthusiasts.

Expressive Communication

Want to convey a message without being limited by words? Snap a picture, record a video or your voice, and share them to your friends right away, all done within your active conversation. Add a cool smiley for added emphasis—BeMe has tons of those expressive faces for times when words aren’t enough. Audio emoticons take it a notch higher, all enriching your texting experience for you and your friends.

History, Status, and Location Tracking

Logging onto BeMe shows you how long your contacts have been online, as well as records of your last conversations with them. Once you send a message, the app also assists and lets you know which messages have already been read, sent, and delivered. The app also allows you to share your location, so that if any of your friends are within the same area, it’s easier to just walk up to them and have a face-to-face chat.

Seamless Contacts Integration

BeMe goes and does the dirty job of matching all your contacts and their phone numbers for your easy retrieval and reference. The app does this by asking for users’ phone numbers the first time they use the app, storing it for use later. You may also exchange personal information through friend subscriptions.

Easy-on-the-Eyes Interface

Simplicity is more. And, the app seems to abide by this philosophy. The homescreen features three tabs for easy access: Chat, Settings, and Phonebook List. Tap the Chat button to begin a conversation with any of your contacts. Tapping the Phonebook List will bring up the phonebook menu, so you can check your contacts’ records, get friend recommendations, and invite new contacts. The Settings button will let you tweak your BeMe profile, your app settings, as well as check your Data Statistics for a view of all the content you’ve exchanged with contacts through the app.

Messages you’ve sent to contacts are displayed in separate bubbles for easy viewing. While inside a certain conversation, you can tap “Press to Talk” to record a voice or video message. A simple tap on the arrow beside the text box pulls up a host of other options that let you send voice-enabled emoticons, multimedia files, contacts for recommendation, and information on your current location, among others.

Added Services

Conversations aren’t the limit with BeMe messenger. As a user, you can also subscribe to added services such as jokes for days when you need a laugh and weather reports for your area.

While BeMe Messenger is a relatively new app in the instant messaging arena, it’s proven to be a viable alternative for common SMS messaging. Experience the features for yourself. Download the BeMe Messenger app at the Google Play Store for free.
