We first covered the Youmigo beta back in November when we first found out about it. The app was being backed by the AppCampus program from Nokia, Microsoft and Aalto University in Espoo, Finland. Youmigo aims to be an intercultural exchange on Windows Phone. You can use it to find penpals around the world or ask a question to folks in a specific region. After months of hard work, Youmigo is out of beta and now available for download.
Here’s what you get with the first release of Youmigo for Windows Phone:
- Completely free, no in-app purchases, no ads
- Translation of every message
- No registration necessary
- Windows Phone Features: Live Tile and Second Live Tiles
Youmigo is fun app for communicating with new people around the globe. Just tap a specific region on the world map to start a conversation. Someone from that area will then respond to your question or comment. Curious what the typical breakfast is for the people of Poland? Ask someone in Poland!
What’s really cool is that Youmigo will translate your conversation in real-time. Language barriers are a thing of the past with Youmigo and the friends you make on there. When you download the app you can sign in using either Facebook or no account. It’s really up to you. The benefit of using Facebook is your conversations and messages will sync between devices.
Youmigo is an app that we’re excited to see come to Windows Phone. Because it went through the AppCampus program it’ll be a Windows Phone exclusive for a minimum of 90 days.
Take Youmigo for a spin and see what it’s like to converse with new friends from anywhere on our planet. Look for me in Redlands, California if you’re curious about anything out here. Have fun!
Download Youmigo from the Windows Phone Store for free.
