A Brand new Text messaging experience for Android Users who need a better user experience and a more secure way to chat with people.
The reason I started this idea was because I was looking to download a great Text-Messaging application on the Google PlayStore but I thought every default interface were looking ugly (just my opinion of course).
One night, I decided to design something that I hope everyone could easily use and like.
Most of my design inspiration for this application came from the windows 8 Flat Design (metro style for those who remember).
During the development process, I interviewed people who were using text messaging everyday to get feedback and something came up... A lot of senior people were bigs fans of text messaging because of its simplicity
It was a choke to me, because I was sure text messaging was a technology only used by teenagers and young people.... this new fact make me reconsider the whole application experience and I started to approach the design from a new angle.
First change I made:
I used really big fonts size for text messages to help anyone to read more easily without the need of wearing glasses or lenses.
I added a way to save and favorite any text message because many people love to re-read some personal and memorable texts
Finally, I realized texting would be more personal if we could see the picture avatar of the person we text with.
So I decided to implement a Facebook Login for those who need more advanced social options.
I've been super passionated by this app... So far even if in some way text messaging technology is becoming a bit irrelevant with the new dominance of messaging applications like What's app, Viber etc...
Flext is still one of my favorite application.
