Text Anyone has been around since 2005 providing free text messages long before the iPhone and subsequent iPhone applications have. There were feature requests and upgrades to be developed and deployed in the backend which increased speed and reliability of messages being deilvered.
The decision was made to provide an address book as a value-add, but quickly ran into two issues: 1) how to simplify the process to “conversate”, and 2) relieving the burden and liability of storing user data on the server. A cookies-based addressed book was developed. Cookies are a client side technology; there is no need for users to log into an account, and the data (phone numbers) are stored on the user’s own computer. So this solution filled the needs of the two requirements perfectly.
In addition to this re-birth of sorts, a WordPress blog was integrated to the existing design, and required a custom theme.
Most recently, there has been a significant redesign of the front-end; now officially being mobile responsive and offering a more pleasing UX. In the back-end, functionality has been expanded to multiple countries, including Canada, France, Argentina, and China.
