Meet Zwingit. Zwingit is a new location-based messaging app that allows you to share messages (we call them "Zwings") with your friends anywhere on Earth. Think of it like a 'virtual' mailbox you can use anywhere you want to share something with your friends. Zwings can be simple text messages, stunning pictures, audio recordings, and art pics. Simply drop a Zwing on the map as a surprise for your friends, and their mobile device will instantly display the surprise message when they come within range. You can even leave Zwings for yourself! We believe messaging people should be fun and full of surprise, and Zwingit makes that possible.
This is just the beginning! We have a number of new ideas and enhancements in development. If you have ideas and thoughts about our product, we want to hear from you. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
