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

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. 

Features

  • 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.

Makes life even easier to keep in touch with colleagues & friends who uses different mobile platform. Kudos!

Use Whatsapp to, would like to try this one. All we need no is a cross platfrom BBM mmmmm would be sweet. But until then we have Cnectd. Share music too ????

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

wow, sounds just like what i need, i work for Telus and some of the chaps have blackberry and some have iphones, and we use BB messenger and this would be a real cool tool to use

I'd be into trying it out. Nothing compares to BBM but would be nice to try another cross platform other than WhatsApp

$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. ;^)

I would love this for my friend and I. She recently switched to an iPhone and I hate texting. So used to BBM.

I am using whatsapp to talk to my parents overseas but it's really slow sometimes. Would like to try this app, see if it's any better...

This would be perfect if it really works well. We are BlackBerry, Android, iPhone and Windows Phone. Only one person gets partially left out (they have two phone options though).

Sounds awesome! And I am getting tired of whatsapp anyway ;) Liveprofile never worked since none of my friends really use it. Maybe this will :)

Xplatform messenger apps r a dime a dozen so let's c what's so special about this 1; let's c if it warrants d price tag!

No thank you. I am promoting BBM to all my friends who are still not there on this lovely amazing Bb7 devices. But as of now most of my business contacts and friends are on it..

Add me please. I am the only one in my house hold with a blackberry and everyone else has ios. And I dont have txt plan so this would be perfect.

I wish I could be a Winner, Because This app Must be really Usefull For me to comunicated with My Family, Because My Sister using android Google Nexus,
My Boyfriend using Different Platform, He is Using Iphone 3G,
and I am Using Blackberry 9780,

It would Be really work For me, And I wish I could Have chance to Win,
thanks you

Can someone list the reasons why this is a better app than some of the free options out there or those with one off payments? I'm not dissing the product, but would just like to know what it offers above free options.

I would love to give this a go... A lot of people I know switched platforms (they'll be back), so I'm stuck with text messages, and I hate the character limit!!!!!! :( Thanks Crackberry and MCI Consultants for the chance!!!

God I have been dying to get a decent Cross-Platform Chatter...

With my luck, everyone else on this list will win, and I'll be the only one without! HAHAHAHA

Fingers Crossed.

LOVE CRACKBERRY.COM BTW! Viva Los Playbook!

Sadly, my wife is now on the Android OS, and we use regular sms and mms. I would love to add more functionality to our texting...
