Slam

Update: Never mind.  After seeing some problems people are having trying to get signed up, this software is just to early in development to be really useful now (but worked fine for me).  So disregard.

I’ll watch development and let you know when I think this is ready for Prime Time

Want to get SLAMmed with me?  SLAM is a new Microsoft mobile (Microsoft Mobile phones only) app that is a social networking application.  SLAM stands for Social, Location, Annotation, and Mobile.

Basically you can create groups of people that can all share photos, location, text messages, etc.

I created a SLAM called kr8tr.  Try it out – the download link is below (or you can just enter your cell number and carrier and it’ll send you a direct download to your phone.

UPDATE:  Read this before you use SLAM!

 

The Slam smartphone client does not use SMS to send and receive messages, it uses HTTP to post messages to the server and to poll for new messages from the server. Because Slam uses the data pipe to send and receive messages, it is very important that all smartphone client users be on an unlimited data plan . We can not stress this strongly enough. Smartphone client users not on an unlimited data plan can expect bills up to $600 / month or more. SMS users will only have to pay for the SMS messages they send and receive per the plan they with their carrier. There are no special charges associated with Slam.
