Mexican Entrepreneur’s App is a Big Hit!By Dania Vargas Austryjak
Video messaging app among top downloads.
Mexican entrepreneur, Oscar Yasser Noriega, aka “Akira”, the CEO and Co-Founder at Pocket Supernova, Inc. is living a rewarding moment now that he’s able to see the success of all his hard work: a “video messaging app with contextual decorations and dynamic text animations” as he describes to Tech in Asia, which has become a top download in Japan, where he currently resides and has his company is based.
Noriega, a digital entrepreneur with over 15 years of experience, has been striving to develop a successful app. And now it seems that his team of five Japanese and three Mexicans (including him), have finally done it with the development of WatchMe Messenger the “World’s first messaging app entirely designed for the Apple Watch”, which has reached 10,000 downloads in just two weeks, having Japan as its main market, followed by China and then by the United States.
So, what is WatchMe about? This app allows you to send quick and fun decorated video messages to your friends. They can be sent between iPhones, Apple Watches or from phone to watch. The app adds contextualized animations, images and text to each message. Every input generates 3 animations: text, context and a random one. These can be moved around or changed. Animations can also be added based on the user’s voice input.
WatchMe was developed to target young adults for short interactions with one-touch messages in a fun social app. The design and interface is pretty straightforward and easy to use. You only need to download (it’s free), then register with a Facebook account, a phone number or an email address. Add your friends and you are ready to start sending out your short video messages.
