Tesla.IM Launches Its App – Secure Instant Messaging for Teams

Hyderabad, AP (PRWEB) June 12, 2013

Upcoming startup, Tesla.IM, announced the launch of its Instant Messenger for Teams. According to their website (http://www.tesla.im), the app can handle millions of messages, retains full chat history, and comes with near-realtime search. All communications are 256 bit AES encrypted.

Tesla.IM shunned XMPP which is traditionally used for realtime communications. Instead they custom built their own realtime engine using Node.js. “We built what we call the ‘Tesla Realtime Engine’. Instant messaging (group chat) is the first of many things the ‘Tesla Realtime Engine’ is capable of. We have some surprises coming,” a spokesperson for the company said.

One thing going well for Tesla.IM is its ease of use. This is evident from the sign-up stage itself. Users are directly taken to a ‘Demo’ where they can test out the app before deciding to sign-up or not. The app itself is clean and minimalist and requires no hand-holding. It does what its meant to do.

Tesla.IM is available to anyone with a valid email-id. Users can also sign-up with their Google/Facebook credentials.

For more information and to sign-up, go to http://www.tesla.im.







GoGekko, creators of the iGab messenger app introduce the newest member of the iGab crew


Hamburg, Germany (PRWEB) May 30, 2013

The iGab messenger app, which was launched in iTunes in March, started out with 5 characters called Gabbers in their voice-messaging app. Each of these characters can be used in combination with the users voice and a chosen emotion; happy, sad or angry, creating a cool one of a kind video voice message.

The iGab team wants users to be involved and is asking Facebook users to help them name the newest Gabber. We listen to our users and because of this feedback, we have decided on our new bug friend as the next member of the iGab crew, stated co-founder Claudia Neuman. Interaction with iGab users has more than tripled since March and the feedback to create a more feminine Gabber was taken seriously, added Co-founder Sabine Hutchison-Leidel. iGab wants the Gabbers to appeal to people around the world, the team hopes to get more feedback and continue to create Gabbers that the users want to see.

The yet-to-be named Gabber can be seen on iGabs Facebook fan page and the team wants to hear from users so send your suggestions.

We have given each of our Gabbers a personality, we hope the stories will make people laugh and identify with them stated co-founder Kathryn Hagedorn. The details concerning the Gabbers background will be revealed on the iGab webpage, once the update has been released.

The first iGab update is expected to be in iTunes by mid-June and will include not only the new Gabber, but a few other surprises. This updates and new Gabber will be free to users.
