Move over, Snapchat
With social media powerhouses like Instagram and Snapchat, it seems as though the world is moving in a more visually communicative direction. We now live in a society where documenting, seemingly, everything is the norm.
The new app, DeeMe amplifies this idea as it provides a platform of communication through photos. While this sounds similar to Snapchat, DeeMe stands out by allowing group conversations.
According to the iTunes preview, “DeeMe is a new way to instant message. It lets you combine your photos with amazing typography, so you can chat using more personalized, beautiful messages”.
Ooh la la, typography
The app gives users a plethora of fonts, colors, and icons (including the much needed middle finger emoji) to personalize each message. DeeMe allows users to connect with their already made contacts on social media such as Facebook.
With different typographies, users are able to change the font and size of the message. There is also more room for text then provided in a standard photo-messaging app, such as Snapchat.
If one needs to respond to a message in a hurry, or does not feel like responding with a photo, they are able to type their response on the initial photo that was sent to them.
Keeping everything organized
The app has a contact inbox where all of a user’s friends are stored from A to Z. DeeMee saves all photo conversations, allowing the user to go back and enjoy the moments more than once. This option is given in grid view or in full screen.
An element that sets DeeMe apart is that the user is able to hide text from the received photo, so that they are able to look at just the picture. This is perfect if a user wants to save a memory that has irrelevant text.
Also included within the app is the ability to send video texts. There is also an option of blank backgrounds, if there is a message that simply does not require a photo.
The app is free and is currently available on iTunes and Google Play. DeeMe’s mission is to give the user a more memorable way to capture and save communication with friends, as examined through their slogan, “Messages Made Beautiful”.
