  • A David & Goliath Story: New App To Become More Popular Then Texting?

    [caption id="attachment_6753" align="alignleft" width="195" caption="David & Goliath"][/caption]

    I recently saw a standup show on YouTube. The comedian, Aziz Ansari (Parks and Recreation) did a bit on texting, arguing how frustrating it is that the only form of communication he exchanges with his friends is through text messaging. Text usage has grown to just about 70%...need I say more? But this Forbes journalists has sufficient proof how one App called WhatsApp could be the newest way to communicate with each other. Watch out Verizon and AT&T...

    It is widely assumed that AT&T and Verizon are nervous about the runaway success of WhatsApp, a messaging application that displaces traditional text-messaging and offers interesting group-messaging and file-sharing features. The mega-carriers boosted the minimum price of their messaging plans partly to prevent consumers from migrating to cheap, small SMS plans while their texting gradually shifted to WhatsApp.

    But is this strategy now backfiring? WhatsApp seems to be making a gradual, but powerful surge in the Top Ten iPhone app chart.

    Last February, the application fluctuated between positions #16-#5. In the month of May, WhatsApp performance range shifted to #9-#4. Anyone who has talked to app vendors knows how hard-fought the Top Ten slots in the iPhone app chart are. The chasm between #10 and #5 can be vast.Right now, WhatsApp is at #3. This tiny company has effectively crushed the plethora of messaging competition it faced. It is now the de facto global messaging app from Australia to Angola to Argentina to America. As the undisputed leader, it can fully leverage the network effect. The collapse of the Blackberry empire and its own messaging system is no doubt helping.
