There are a few errors in the first screenshot "Know what you Friends are Upto" - doesnt make sense. Also.... why do we need another messaging app? What is going to stop people using Messenger, Whatsapp, etc etc and make them use this? What is the benefit?

@bentossell Hey Ben - The Status screen lets you know what your friends are doing. Users can set their status using Emojis. So its a fun way to know whats going on. Agreed, there are way too many Chat apps out there. What makes Hie unique is that you can chat without typing. Users can send Predefined Messages, Pics, GIFs and locations to friends or groups. This app was built out of a personal need. I was busy with some project work and did not have the time to type back, I also hated the forwards that kept coming in and distracting me. So I thought why not have an app that cuts out the clutter and simplifies communication. PS: This is an MVP, so hoping to get feedback from ProductHunters to make it better.

@russellgodinho Ok... I just dont know that its a big enough differentiator that people will use this over other messaging apps Realistically it takes a couple seconds to write a message

@bentossell Don't intend it to be a replacement to any of the existing messaging apps. This is just another fun way to communicate when you want to say something quickly and in a fun way.
