5 Incredible Mobile Breakthroughs of 2013

2013 was the year of innovative mobile technology. Twenty years ago, we used our mobile devices primarily for calling and, really, not much else. Today, our mobile devices help run our entire lives and without them we would be lost.

Introducing Messenger VI

Sometimes it feels like the more things change the more they stay the same and you are right… Messenger has changed so much in the last 10 years it almost looks exactly the same as it did in 2003.  Sure, we have added new features like email2sms, bulk sender, expanded address books, a mobile interface and more but it looks much the same as it did the night the Govenator said good night to both his families and went off to rescue Cali.

Erin, our new designer, impressed us in her second interview with a vision for the future of Messenger.  It was not hard to see how it would [...]
