Communication is the basis of any civilized society. I remember the days when we had no mobiles and we were depending on the classic analogue phones, wired in the living room. It was definitely a romantic, unplugged experience, but not always useful. Technology has brought some major advantages in terms of communication, no doubt about it. However, there are a few things I miss: the element of surprise, people having dinner without watching their phones, lunch discussions without interruptions and maybe a touch of innocence. On the other side, we have the wonders of technology: people being able to communicate across the globe, information available with a simple touch and real-time messaging. Progress has helped us cross so many barriers – physical and psychological – even though sometimes human touch is lost along the way.
Smartphones have become an indispensable item – I dare you not to admit it? Considering the multiple functionalities, one should think that their main purpose was forgotten. Wrong. Recent studies indicate that communication continues to be the main activity on smartphones. Another interesting fact is that with all those extra functions, over 30% of the time spent using the smartphone is dedicated to communication apps.
Hoping that you‘ll maintain a proper balance between messaging applications and face-to-face communication, here is one of the hottest messaging services today. I introduce you GetGems! (*trumpets)
What makes it great is that you can use it to keep in touch with your friends and family whilst at the same time you can use it as a Bitcoin or Gems wallet.
GetGems is secure, fast and user-friendly. I know what you’re going to say: well, aren’t there plenty of messaging applications out there? Why should I use GetGems?
Let’s check the novelties. GetGems successfully combines secure and reliable messaging with a Bitcoin wallet. This is an interesting mélange of functionalities, especially for small businesses or groups searching for a secured file sharing & messaging application. Up to 200 people can form a chat group and enjoy the replies/comments features plus the already popular hash tags that keep things in order. Unlike other chat applications (like WhatsApp or SnapChat); GetGems is cloud-based and heavily encrypted. This makes possible to access your messages from several devices at once and share an unlimited number of photos, videos and files (doc, zip, mp3) of up to an astonishing 1.5 GB.
GetGems is free and will stay free – no subscription fees, forever.
- For added fun, GetGems offers animated gif search, an excellent art photo editor and an open sticker platform.
- If you worry about privacy, GetGems brings you the Secret Chats with self-destructing messages, photos and videos.
- GetGems is free. Now and forever, promise the developers.
What I liked about GetGems is the fact that you can use the 12 digit password to login to counterwallet.io. Accessing your Bitcoin wallet is as easy as it seems. In order to view your private key in counter-wallet click on the blue “Address Auctions” button, followed by “Show Private Key” (make sure the info is safe from curious eyes). GetGems is fast, secure and highly reliable. Your mobile wallet is fully secured considering the efforts made for encrypt data and to provide a cloud-data. However, remember that the mobile wallet is more suitable for day-to-day expenses. If you have larger amounts of GEMZ, make sure you transfer them into a different wallet, which is more difficult to access and easier to secure.
THE SMARTER WAY TO MESSAGING APPLICATIONS
GetGems is available as a free download for iOS and Android. This is a complex messaging application that successfully combines effective messaging with Bitcoin and Gems wallet. Members can send messages, photos, videos and files of any type (doc, zip, mp3) to groups of up to 200 people. Now here is the cherry on the top – not only that GetGems features all the cool things above – it can also bring you money. For every person that registers based on your referral code, you earn GEMS.
- Register to the app and invite people to register as well, with your referral code. Every time someone you invited registers, you will earn GEMS.
- Sharing your referral code to Facebook and Twitter will bring you the “Daily Bonus”.
- Purchasing GEMS is possible in Poloniex.com and ShapeShift.io.
