Chinwag Messaging App - Jomoco LTD / Brightec

Digital - New Service or Application

- Silver

Jomoco LTD approached us to create an innovative messaging app. Chinwag Messaging offers an alternative way to message family, friends, and colleagues. Family and friends love to share. Emails are formal and texts don’t communicate all there is to say but Chinwag messaging makes it easy to send, save and share precious memories or silly off-the-cuff moments your dad would rather forget. Chinwag has been intuitively designed to ensure it is fun to use, interactive and accessible. Jomoco said about the app: The app is looking great and has met our highest expectations. It was a pleasure to work with the Brightec team throughout the design, build and testing phases of the project.
