LiveProfile – Connecting different SmartPhone Platforms through Chat
I was going through all of the different emails and IM’s I’ve received on my blackberry over the year and I stumbled upon this new application that you might have heard of it. It’s called LiveProfile, and it’s a way to connect the 3 different smartphones platforms (iPhone, Blackberry, Android) together. Don’t you have a friend that has a different smartphone brand and you’ve always wanted to use the same IM (Instant Messenger) like whatsapp or BBM? Well now with LiveProfile, you can be text each other the whole day, and not have to worry about a thing! And the best part is that it’s absolutely free! Now who doesn’t like freebies?
How to get LiveProfile
Open up the browser available on your Smartphone, and go to LiveProfile. Now depending on the type of Smartphone you have, select the download links available (AppStore for Apple devices, Android market for Androids, and Blackberry App world, for Blackberry users) or just click on the download links at the bottom of the page. Download and install the application, following the instructions on your screen.
Now to start using this messenger application, all you have to do is sign up, and it’s a pretty simple process. First, simply put in your email and password. It will automatically log you in, and you’ll have to fill out your username, first name, and last name etc (the usual signup process on any program or app). After that, you click on next and it will ask you whether you’d like to scan your address book for people you have on your phone that also have the application, click on “ok” and continue if you’d like to add them, if not click “no”. Now you can also invite people to start using LiveProfile, like People who haven’t found out about it yet, but will thank you for finding such a cool app.
Now all you have to do is select a contact from the list, and start chatting away, day or night. I know I’ll need this application to start chatting with all the Android users I know, and there’s quite a few of them! You can also select the furthest tab, which has a few features, such as editing your profile, status updates and so on (somewhat similar BBM) Impressive app! You can also send Video and Picture messages to your friends, which is quite cool too.
All in all, it’s a great FREE app, unlike competitors like the not-so-free Whatsapp, and it doesn’t take up much of your data either. So if you’ve always wanted to chat with users on different smartphone platforms, this is your App. And to top it off, the Developers say this App will always be 100% free. Now thats gold.
