i just changed my blog title a few weeks ago. & i thought the name ping! sounds nice. but i had no idea that the name was already a name of an application that works like WhatsApp Messenger - just a bit different.
but for now i can't benefit much from my WhatsApp Messenger because not everybody's equipped with iPhone or Android phone or a BB or Nokia smartphone. (& to be honest, i don't really know what is the requirement needed to have a WM application on your phone ==')
oke. the similarity between PingMe and WhatsApp is that they allow you to send sms & mms for free. however, PingMe also allows you to update your status (kind of like how you do on Facebook) and it's kind of like a tracking device. when you chat with your friend you can look up their location. i'm not sure how but from the vid, it looks like there's a layout of the location (meaning, a map) and your friend's current position will be marked by his/her name.
i don't know which one i'd prefer more. maybe PingMe, because it doesn't have an expiration date? (you have to pay for WhatsApp after one year. at least, that's what i've heard)
p/s. what i really wanna say is; PingMe, please don't sue me. i use ping! & you use PingMe. we're totally different right?
