Foster Lockwood, E13, was just trying to leave his girlfriend a voicemail when the lengthy and cumbersome process to send his message hit him. And what began as a general annoyance, turned into a real life project for the computer science engineer.
In just a few months, Lockwood created Wyre, an app that to him is, “everything texting should be.” After downloading the free app and registering, Wyre users can send each other messages in texts, photos (with captions!), drawings, audio clips, YouTube videos, a map of their location, and contacts all from one easy to use screen.
Without global limitations or caps on the number of members you can have in one text message, Wyre might just be the next big thing in messaging! Check out Lockwood’s creation on Facebook and on the web.
