Ping them.. with voice messages
Pinging someone use to mean sending a text or an IM..Pinger redifines that- their service lets you send voice messages with your voice to anyone - w\out ringing or listening to their greetings..they are onto something here - Ive said it before that texting is bigger now then voice because of the fact that you get through w\out the ringing, listening to ringback tones, or greetings, and its to the point- "meet me in 10mins"- no need for the whole courtesy thing "how are you? whats going on?" - most importantly is the fact that you dont feel like you are interrupting someone. .. sign up is pretty easy .. you get a local phone number which you use to "ping" people - you do have to import your contacts to the pinger website, and then they are accessible by just saying their name when you leave the message - it sends an email to that person and if they are pinger members they can a text message sent to their cell phone as well... if you are a myspace junkie you can import your myspace friends, and use pinger to post an audio bulletin from your cell phone...its a cool app but if it let users ping people and alert them on their cell phones (not just email) even if they werent pingers it would be even better! but hey its a free service so check it out and let me know what you think..
