Welcome to Miami-Lango Brings Unique Visual Messaging to the Hands of Miami Smart Phone Users
iPhone & Android App Offers Miamians Location and Culture Specific Images; Lango Users Spark Conversation with Images Depicting Latest Miami Gossip
MIAMI, April 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Lango, the platform for self-expression and creative communication, today announced the launch of visual messaging icons created specifically for Miami area iPhone and Android users. Lango empowers texting with daily content based on the latest and greatest news, celebrity gossip, entertainment and social trends–and now users can share Miami “spark” and “flair” across their mobile and social networks.
Lango is the first company to summarize daily happenings, social communication and culture by transforming them into relevant textable images. The Lango Miami Pack includes images depicting Ocean Drive, beach babes and dudes, gators, sunglasses and “Welcome to Miami” lingo. Lango does not tell Miamians what to say, but instead provides a way for them to express emotion and humor in peer-to-peer texting and across social media networks.
“We’re setting out to redefine what it means to send a text message and share images across social networks,” said Jen Grenz, VP of Mobile, Lango. “Never before have Miamians had the opportunity to incorporate images depicting their own culture and daily happenings into their everyday communication and social sharing. This is the future of messaging.”
In addition to relevant textable images, the Lango app supports ‘meme’ like social sharing, giving users the freedom to make social commentary on Facebook and Twitter. Its proprietary ‘Essence Engine’ continuously proposes customized images to personalize each message, eliminating the need for lengthy search within a large, unsorted collection of images. Images can be used to emphasize a feeling or expression, or summarize the idea of an entire text.
Now Miamians can “spark” up the word “Miami” in a text message by choosing the sunglasses and palm tree background to express it visually. And users who are looking to add some “flair” to their texting and social sharing can choose a background or insert their own photo and write a slogan to express exactly what they mean.
“The way you communicate on a regular basis is largely impacted by where you live,” said Dr. Udi Graff, Lango’s Chairman & CEO. “We are offering Miamians, and those who want to incorporate images of Miami into their daily text messages, the means to make their text and social conversations more expressive. Finally, Miami’s unique culture can be depicted through images and integrated into daily communication in a creative way!”
The Miami pack is designed to supplement the release of Lango’s daily content, and is available for purchase in its in-app virtual store. For simplicity, users can purchase Lango coins in the virtual store to create an endless library of images. Lango’s virtual store offers a large variety of themed Premium Packs, including images depicting famed football players as part of the National Football League Player’s Association (NFLPA) pack, Gangnam Style, SteamPunk, and many other event-driven exciting visuals and packs.
