What do you do when you need to talk your loved ones and you're out of mobile credit or your phone line's been barred because you were too busy to pay your bills? That's right, you text them via an instant message app! As for me, I use instant messaging apps even when I still have credit cos I'm too stingy to spend 15 cents on a text message haha. IM apps are lifesavers and the people at Samsung knows it because they have introduced their very own IM app. Well, to be specific, its more of a chat app. Why, you ask? Read on!
If you haven't already heard of ChatON(what, were you living under a rock?), it is a cross-platform mobile messaging app, which, in simpler terms, means that besides Samsung, ChatON is accessible to users of other smartphones as well. Currently, it is available on Android, iOS, Blackberry, Windows and bada. This sunny-colored app is used in over 200 countries, in 62 languages.
The Samsung Mobilers Malaysia team and I were invited to the ChatON official launch party at The Butter Factory. Dress code for the day was orange! Not everyone's favorite color, but hey, YOLO right? XD
And and and, best dressed gets to take home a Samsung Galaxy S III Mini!
|The venue. It was my first time here :)|
|Mother Father Gentleman! That's Chatty at the back!|
|Orange has never looked this sexy|
The best dressed nominees. Everyone took something home! Tyler got himself an extra bunch of Starbucks vouchers
With the man of the moment
Our Deputy Chief Mobiler Denise and YEC Youyou took home a Galaxy S III Mini each, just by going up onstage in a pair. Omagawd *0*Just look at those happy faces. Had I known that was the prize I would've pushed, pulled, killed my way up to the stage. Kicking myself for being such a party pooper at that time, preferring to sit my posterior on the couch in the club pffft
So, why ChatOn?
Enhanced Group Chat : allows you to add up to 200 friends in a group chat
Anicons : Oh-so-cute animated emoticons(yes,they move! *squeals*) to help you express yourself better
Animessage : create your OWN animated messages with YOUR drawings, texts, and audio
Trunk : Share all your photos and media files in box for convenient browsing
|This is how my background looks. You can also see a very rude message from Ken haha|
Very chat-friendly right? Fresh and cute too! Imma sucker for anything cute so they have definitely found a fan in me!
Extra extra!A Starbucks fan? Add Starbucks as your 'Special Buddy' on ChatOn to score yourself promotions and special discounts! Opportunist me already did heheh.
Of course, an evening like this will not be complete without lotsa selcas with the mobilers and two of my favorite ex-interns! Photo time!
