Snowball – the little free app that keeps all of your social media messages together!

Snowball is the newest addition to the panoply of social media apps that keep things together for you and only you! The app is guided by the idea of unifying messaging apps that float above the rest of Android on your screen. It even throws in a pretty mascot!

Snowball is usually hidden on a side of your screen but you can see some slide-out circles you can interact with at your leisure when the time comes. When a compatible app gets a new chat notification, a circle pops out and the little snowman mascot will wave at you and try to get your attention. When you tap the pretty face you will open a window on top of everything you are doing and you will see the latest messages you got.

At the moment, Snowball supports Hangouts, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, SnapChat, line, WeChat, Slack and Twitter and SMS apps.

 

 

The thing is when you tap on the Snowball face you will actually open the appropriate app because Snowball does not reply from its own window. It is basically secondary notification software that organizes your social media apps.

Google building new competitor for WhatsApp, Economic Times of India reports

Economic Times of India reports that Google is building a competitor for WhatsApp that should have a better chance at taking a piece of the market and revenge the failure of Hangouts on PC, tablet and smartphones. It appears that Google is working on an app that combines internet-based communication and SMS in a seamless and unified viable platform that is not Hangouts.

So what’s the difference between this new possible project and Hangouts?

It seems that it wouldn’t need a Google account for validation, which could be a nagging aspect in some emerging markets? It appears that, by removing this urge for creating Google accounts in order to use Hangouts, the new app would be used much more and would manage to compete with the now-paid WhatsApp and Line, as well as other popular applications which activate in the same spectrum with some popularity.

It also appears that the perfect market for testing such a new app is India, and if this project becomes reality, that is where you should be if you wanna be the first to test it! It could happen in the future but don’t keep your hopes up, thing may get shaken soon!
