[prMac.com] Paris, France – The Shuff team today is proud to announce the release of Shuff 1.0, their innovative namesake social networking app developed for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. Communicate now with Shuff, the messenger ahead of its time! Shuff gives you many ways to stay in touch with your friends. Communication has never been so fun, simple and private. See in real-time what they’re writing to you, letter by letter. Watch, as they type. Hurry your friend to answer you by “pulsing” them. Shuff is an app with no history. Only the last sent message of your conversation appears. But you can “favorite” a message with an up-swipe, and find it later in the Favorites menu.
Who has never dreamed of communicating faster? Sending a message without pressing “send”? Not waiting to receive the answer you hope for? Sorry? You want more? You want to see what your friend is typing? Shuff can do it for you. Shuff revolutionizes the way we communicate, by offering users the ability to follow a conversation letter by letter, as it is typed. Our famous Oxford Dictionary specifies: Instant: [usually before noun] happening immediately.
The real definition of an instant messenger. “Today, thousands of applications offer to chat with friends, but none of them propose to do it in real-time. Here is where Shuff innovates. And amazes,” explains Cyril Trosset, project founder. “This fully secured application does not keep any record of the conversation: there is no history. And for more privacy, the letters of the messages are mixed so that, only the first and the last letter of each word remains in its original place, to permit reading without any difficulties. The others letters are “shuffed,” meaning randomly mixed. This provides more privacy from prying eyes. There is no need for a college degree to decrypt the shuffed messages.”
An international application. “I’m drinking some wine with my friend on a terrace in New York, I’m sending a pic to my friend in Lisbon right now,” continues Trosset. “I’m drawing a (very good) portrait of my sister in the drawroom with my brother. I share my location while I’m in Los Angeles and talking with my cousin in London, still under the rain (any use of existing “cliches” is purely coincidental). By the way, what time is it over there? Don’t worry, Shuff indicates to you the local time of your friend with whom you are conversing, if he or she is long distance or abroad.”
A maximum interactivity: An anonymous mode is also available to talk with your friends with your identity kept secret. Perfect if you are fond of jokes. Finally, some shuffed sentences can be sent by text messages, WhatsApp and social networks. According to a famous law, the shuffers are people who inspire feelings of kindness. We are not so sure about the source, but trust us: being a shuffer is cool.
The Story. “We won’t tell you Shuff was born in a garage,” continues Trosset. “That the application has been developed by a geek, bored in his student room. No, Shuff tells a lot of us, our friendship and our different ways. Freshly graduated engineers, designer, communicant, paralegal and financial man, our profiles are diverse but we always shared a passion for new technologies. The Shuff project was born from that wish to use the new technologies to create the first direct messenger, really direct. At first, it was just an idea, to have fun for a summer, and finally: a fast messenger, innovating and the more interactive it can be. And mostly fun.”
