GroupMe For Android Is Now Live
TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon alumnusÂ GroupMe has come out with an Android app today to supplement its iPhone offering, which like social texting apps TextPlus andÂ Fast Society allows you to text within groups through private SMS.
Founders Steve Martocci andÂ Jared Hecht explain on the company blog that Android users were already using the text version of the service “in droves” and tell TechCrunch that the Android app has been their most requested feature.
The app will now make group texting on an Android phone even easier, and already loads your number and pre-existing text groups. It also involves a one button step for creating a group — Hit the “+” and you’re able to add friends from your contacts as well create a unique mobile number for your group.
GroupMe currently has $850k in funding in a round led by SV Angel. You can find the appÂ by searching for â€œGroupMeâ€ in the Android Market.
