Hey, great app! Glad to see people getting interested about "Live conversation". Forum are good, but the format is kind of old. This is refreshing!

@tsunaze Thanks a bunch! We're also excited about updating the web forum. There's A LOT to be done here. The roadmap we have is even more interesting. Stay tuned! :)

Hi, Hunters! I’m one of the Co-Founders of Pinguin. We launched our Beta on PH not too long ago and had some incredible feedback. Since our initial launch, we have been hard at work figuring out exactly what our communities want. While Pinguin is the “Chat app for nerds.” We found that us nerds like to have some fun too. That’s why we’re packing Pinguin 2.0 with everything you need to have the most fun and informed conversations possible. Wait, who are you? For those of you that don’t know us, Pinguin is an interest-based chat app to join communities and talk about the topics you love. Bookmark channels and chat about your interests nationally or with others in your city. So what’s new? In-App Browser: Want to reference some song lyrics or find a link to an article you would like to share? Browse the web right inside of the app, copy the link and return right back to the conversation to share it. Photo/Video Upload: Our Beta allowed photos taken in the moment. We quickly found that people love to edit their photos or share their favorite memories stored on their camera roll. Now you’re able to share your best moments with your channels without limits (Video Upload Coming Soon!) GIFs: Who doesn’t love GIFs? We’ve integrated GIPHY into 2.0 so you can react to the conversation with a well-placed cat GIF. Live Events/AMAs: We’ve opened up AMA channels for some of our favorite influencers to chat directly with their audience. Check in and see if any of your favorite influencers are live! For those of us that have been chatting with us on the app, thank you! For those of you that have never heard of us, We can’t wait to get to know you!

@joshua_gunning it says is not available in the store :(
Joshua GunningMaker@joshua_gunning · CEO, Pinguin
@ajimix Are you looking in Android? If so, we're currently only available on iOS. We're a small bootstrapped team but we have kicked off the foundation of what will become our Android app. If in iOS store, I checked this morning, all seems good there. Let me know and sorry if is the former but we are working on bringing it to market!

@joshua_gunning @ajimix It's not available on the German App Store unfortunately... I'd like to try it out, made a similar app in the past.
Joshua GunningMaker@joshua_gunning · CEO, Pinguin
@ferdinandriedl Ah! I see. We're geolocked to the US for just a while longer. We're making some improvements and logic to be sure the experience is really strong in additional countries! Coming soon 😄

Hey, Hunters! We have some really fun stuff happening on the app today. We're holding an All Day AMA kicking off NOW with @Nivo0o0. Go get your questions answered on the app. http://pinguinapp.co/introducing...

Looks awesome. What's the long term viability of this? I was obsessed with Talkshow which was similar to this only to have it die out and close. I want something like this really bad, but I'm so timid after so many apps die out.
Joshua GunningMaker@joshua_gunning · CEO, Pinguin
@iamjmw well Joseph, we're going to be here for awhile. We are bootstrapped and plan on running this for as long as we can. Plus, we have some things being built to help with long term sustainability! 🙌 We'll be here for the foreseeable future! 😄
Joseph Wood@iamjmw · Social Media Coordinator
@joshua_gunning - Awesome! That's good to hear. Love the app!

Very interesting idea. I will try it out.
