Cross platform messenger Cnectd gets updated to v3.2 - Enter to win for you and 2 friends!

By Kerri Neill on 6 Apr 2012 01:10 pm EDT
Cross platform messaging apps have become a dime a dozen lately and very few seem to really catch on. MCI Consultants, the creators of Cnectd, are looking to change that with a pretty sweet deal.

We first mentioned Cnectd back in May of 2010 when the app was still in the beta stages and then revisited it a year later. While many users liked the app, it was overshadowed by some of the bigger competitors like LiveProfile and WhatsApp mainly due to the understated UI. This latest update brings Cnectd to v3.2. 


  • Cnected allows you to see when your messages have been sent, delivered and read.
  • Cross-Platform service available to Android, BlackBerry and iOS users.
  • Share media with your contacts or groups.
  • Group chats are easy to follow the conversation with different color chat bubbles.
  • Connect and sync with your Facebook contacts that are also using Cnectd.
  • Compression and Security – compression and encryption technology sends your messages quickly while ensuring no personal data is compromised.
  • Personal Profile – Each user has their own personal profile including a picture, status updates and a display name.
All in all this sounds just like some of the other cross-platform applications that we’ve covered but what truly makes this one different and what good is a messaging app that you have to pay for when none of your friends are using it? With Cnectd, you purchase your license code for $2.99 (good for a year) and receive 2 additional license codes for your friends or family. $3 for 3 user licenses really isn’t a bad deal. If you’re a multiple platform household like mine is, this may be exactly what you were looking for. You can also purchase bulk licensing (20 or more) at a discounted price. This option is perfect for small businesses. 

Contest: The generous people over at MCI Consultants have graciously given us 100 FREE license codes to give out to our awesome readers. Remember, each license code comes with 2 FREE codes that you can give to your friends essentially making this giveaway for 300 people! All you need to do is leave a comment below and you’re entered to win! Contest ends Sunday at midnight.

Depsite the fact that my idiot friends are using iPhones, I do occasionally like to talk to them :)

Would love to have a copy. Waiting patiently for BB10.

Throw me into the loopppppp!!!

I'd like to try that! Looks like bbm for everyone.

Would love to give it a try, usually use WhatsApp but a change is sometimes good!!!!

You know what they say, if you want to win, win.

Please give my friends and I reliable messaging. With most having iphones, some take 10-30 mins to receive. Please help me show them what reliability is like. BB4lyfe

I will give this app a shot. Pick me!!!

I doubt I would be able to convince anyone to switch away from whatsapp but who knows? hook a brotha up!

Save me some money on my texting pckg with this!

I would love a free licence for this app, seems like a great one !!

$3.00 a year seems pretty steep to me considering all the free applications there are out there. Of course it depends on how old a person is as to how much this would cost them for the rest of their life. ;^)
