“Everybody’s Moving to metro” – Ping too!

We’re pleased to announce that Ping!, our integrated social media and messaging app  is now available for download at the @Metro App Store!

The push-based social messaging app can be downloaded here.  Ping can currently be downloaded on the Samsung Galaxy Attain 4G (R920) with support for more devices to follow. This marks our first carrier partnership for the Ping app.

The carrier version of the app is an expansion on the free download available in the Google Play store to every Android user worldwide   At metroPCS and with the version now available on the @MetroAppStore, Ping integrates with the mobile email application from SEVEN Networks which has been embedded on metroPCS devices for several years.

Again, Ping is aimed at helping wireless carriers bring their messaging services into today’s social age with SEVEN’s first text chat functionality, a carrier–deployable service that is integrated with other forms of messaging. This gives wireless carriers an opportunity to participate in a hot market now dominated by start–ups and social networking companies but also deploy a chat application which is, by design, friendly to the network and does not create a signaling storm.

We’re excited to be working with metroPCS and can’t wait to hear what you all think about the carrier version of the app, so please let us know in the comments below!

Nice work.”.  At metroPCS and with the version now available on the metroPCS app store, Ping integrates with the mobile email application from SEVEN Networks which has been embedded on metroPCS devices for several years.
