Head to Head: Telegram vs WhatsApp

Welcome to Head to Head, a brand new Ting YouTube series powered by you!

Every second week, two mobile apps face off and it’s up to our viewers to decide which will emerge victorious. We’ll be selecting two comparable apps from categories without a clear frontrunner, which should make for some close fights and great conversation. If you aren’t familiar with either app, don’t sweat it! Several aspects of each app will be listed to give you some insight and help decide which is your fave. We’ve added some nifty annotations inside YouTube to let you vote by clicking on the app of your choice at the end of the video. One week later, we’ll publish a results video highlighting the winning app! Update: The results are in!

The Ting app arrives on iPhone!

Sally Field: You Like Me!“I haven’t had an orthodox career, and I’ve wanted more than anything to have your respect […] and I can’t deny the fact that you like me, right now, you like me!”

For those of you who were still in diapers (or not yet even a zygote) in 1984, that was Sally Field in her Academy Award acceptance speech for Places in the Heart. It pretty well sums up how we’ve felt over the past few days as a bunch of you have downloaded our snazzy new Ting app for iOS and shared awesome feedback.

Ting app for iOSChad, our mobile app guru (and generally awesome guy), is already hard at work in Michigan with your ideas, suggestions, and unintended feature discoveries… On the App Store, we are currently at version 0.9, with 0.9.1 likely going live later this week with a few small repairs. (Thank you, Shawn Colvin. Can you tell I lived through the 1990s?)

But we’re not stopping there. Next up on our timeline is a total review of our mobile app usability. We’re thinking of ways to really improve how we display usage to make things more intuitive, how to improve device feature management, looking at ideas to make referrals both fun and easy through our mobile apps, and more.

So if you have any ideas, suggestions, or feature requests you’d like to see in our future mobile apps, share away in the comments here… And if you haven’t already installed our new app on your iPhone, go get it!
