New Chumkee App Creates Social Streams Through Visual Conversations(November 18, 2011)
NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/18/11 -- Smartphone app developer C-Vibes Ltd has announced the launch of its new immersive social app, Chumkee, available for free download on the iPhone. Chumkee takes socializing to the next level by making visually rich dialogue fun and easy. The app enables users to express themselves and engage with others through video and photo conversations on-the-go.
Through Chumkee's unique swipe and slide interface, users can capture and spotlight their daily adventures, passions and interests, and whatever is on their minds -- wherever they go. In addition to offering an intuitive way for people to start conversations, Chumkee enables users to respond with video and photo replies, making the experience more immersive and interesting than standard text comments. Hashtags allow users to find specific topics, making following conversation streams and meeting new people seamless.
"We created Chumkee for people to easily engage with others in a fun and irreverent setting. The visual nature of the app gives people a whole new way of having conversations," said Chumkee Co-founder David Aumonier. "We're thrilled to introduce Chumkee to people looking for a new and entertaining community for self-expression."
Before making an official release, Chumkee has already been downloaded by over 15,000 users worldwide, with 85% of users engaging with the app everyday.
Thanks to the beta-launch being featured in the Apple Store in the U.S., Canada, Japan, Mexico, Italy, Brazil and the U.K., individuals who have been interacting with the app are as varied as they are diverse, from a model in Brazil to an amateur singer in Queens, a sports fan in Georgia to a student in Egypt, a fashion critic in D.C. to a video-blogger in Japan, people with all kinds of interests love using Chumkee to share their video, photos, and text.
