Smashtalk® is Like the Bicycle

Bicycles are a major form of transportation all over the world today.  It is amazing when you look at the history of bicycles how one key change to the design of the bicycle changed the nature of bicycles forever.  Smashtalk® is poised to do the same to the world of text messaging.

In 1817, Baron von Drais invented a walking machine that would help him get around the royal gardens faster: two same-size in-line wheels, the front one steerable, mounted in a frame which you straddled.  The device was propelled by pushing your feet against the ground, thus rolling yourself and the device forward in a sort of gliding walk.  It wasn't until 1865 that pedals were added.  That’s 48 years between invention and the first major improvement.

Text messaging celebrated its 20 year anniversary this past November.  Like the bicycle, it’s taken a long time for any evolutionary changes to come to the world of text messaging.  That first evolutionary change is Smashtalk.

Smashtalk is native text messaging with the Reply-All functionality that ought to have been available from day 1.  Like pedals on a bicycle, Smashtalk changes everything about text messaging. 

Want to hold a real-time conversation with multiple friends or colleagues?  Smashtalk lets you do this without involving e-mail or web sites. 

Need to make a quick decision amongst multiple colleagues?  Smashtalk is the answer and works across all the carrier networks without their having to change anything. 

Worried about exposing your friend’s cell numbers through Reply-All?  Not a problem.  Smashtalk only displays names.  You cannot reply to names for which you do not possess a valid text messaging address.

The fact of the matter is that Smashtalk opens a lot of new doors as far as usage, functionality and benefit to all who have mobile devices that can send or receive text messages.  Even if you do not have a Smashtalk-enabled device, you will still receive Smashtalk messages.  What you will see is exactly what you see today; the name of the sender and the option to reply to the sender.

Smashtalk is running today on both Windows and Mac computers.  It is patented technology that is easily ported to any mobile operating system.  It is also inexpensive to license.

I invite you to visit and click on the link to send a message to senior executives at Google asking them to include Smashtalk in Android.  Let them know that you can see the impact Smashtalk would have on how you connect with your friends and you want Smashtalk on your smartphone and tablet.. 

Isn't it time that text messaging got a set of “pedals?”
