NowThen has been in operation for a few months now, however today they’re showing off a lick of paint and some brand new features. You could say they’ve just gone up a notch or two on the ‘beta’ ladder.
On paper, it looks like a photo-sharing website, although I’m here to tell you it’s much more than that. I had the opportunity to meet up with the site’s founders last week, who explained it’s a way of staying connected with your phone contacts, as well as strangers online. An MMS sent to the website from your handset will be published to your profile, but also sent to your NowThen buddies, who’ve elected to receive your photos.
It costs just the standard MMS rate your network charges, and you only get billed once, with your MMS going to the NowThen website, and then it bounces back to your friends’ phones. In Dixon’s, but can’t decide between the Acer laptop or Sony laptop? Snap a pic of it, send it off to the site, and in turn your elected friends, and they can then leave their comments instantly, telling you you’d be mad to buy a Sony VAIO.
It’s free, and is boasting over 2,000 active users already.
