Gurgaon, India – Pariksha Labs, a leading mobile app publisher targeting Indian consumers with innovative smartphone/tablet apps and FromHereOn, a leading advertising and communications agency, today are proud to announce the availability of their jointly developed app “ThotOfU: Gift, Share Fun Pictures With Friends via FaceBook.”
ThotOfU, a stylized form of “Thought Of U” provides a simple way to share, send, gift fun pictures and thoughts to your friends via FaceBook. It allows users to quickly see friends who have birthdays this day/week/month and lets a user send a greeting, wish or “thot” to them. Its uniqueness lies in a large catalog of fun images that are funny, whacky, unique, and relevant and can be used across a wide range of age profiles. Users can add their own “thots” to the images and post the same to their FaceBook friends.
“We have been noticing the growing usage of FaceBook to share “Happy Birthday” messages. Most users post plain vanilla messages. We want to change this and are giving users tools to send highly relevant, unique and personalized messages to their friends. If the birthday boy gets a message that is different, he will smile and remember the “thot” says Mr. Arvind Jha, Founder & CEO of Pariksha Labs. “I used the app to send a cricket picture to a classmate on his birthday with a “keep playing” message. My classmate was a star batsman and my entire friend network noticed this and asked me how I could find the highly relevant picture. We want to help our users connect better with their social circles with our app”, Mr. Arvind Jha added.
The app has an organized library which has categories such as humor, music, sports, fashion, travel, food/drink etc. Each category has a collection of interesting images that can be used by the users. “We all want to be noticed, even on Facebook. Keeping this in mind, we have created a library of images that are fresh, relevant for sharing publicly and designed to be noticed. We will keep adding more images to the library, and always keep it refreshed, to expand the users’ range of options. We will also have a recommendation option based on the likes and interests of the friend being targeted and also include a gallery of very premium, exclusive images that will be offered in limited editions” said Mr. Rajesh Agarwal, Founder and CEO of FromHereOn Communications.
