“Instead of launching on i Phone and Android as most people were doing, we looked at Windows Mobile and Windows Phone 7 because we knew there wouldn’t be any competition, the users would probably be a little more forgiving and would put up with having a little bit smaller user base for the time being.” Today, about 85% of the users are on Windows Phone and 90% are on Windows Phone or Windows Mobile. In fact, it’s not about tracking your friends at all – it’s about meeting new people. This hasn’t apparently been much of an issue so far, as they’ve only had to ban around 1,700 users to date.Users can post updates which can be cross-posted to Facebook, plus engage in one-on-one IM-like chats and picture message exchanges, although with the latter, the app requires first that at least five text messages have been sent without the sender getting blocked…you know, to cut down on the “here’s a picture of my junk” kind of thing.
There’s also that above-mentioned, pretty out-there feature (or maybe I’m just old) that lets users actually phone other users via the app. You can accept, reject or block a caller, but you can’t turn the setting off. On Windows Phone, the calls go over both Wi-Fi and 3G, but Hamachek expects restrictions when they get around to porting this feature to i Phone.
