Messaging App Yes/No Launches on iOS, Android

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Messaging app Yes/No has launched on iOS and Android devices, with the goal of eliminating wasted time during text message conversations, when the only required response is either a ‘yes’ or ‘no’ answer.

The app allows users to ask questions limited to 42 characters, which also support an attached image. Users have the option to reply with either ‘yes’ or ‘no,’ with non-app users also supported (answers can be sent via traditional text message). While the app can be used for one-on-one questions, it was also designed for group communication, when a response is required from multiple people in a timely fashion.

Each question expires after 24 hours, prompting users to quickly respond. In addition to sending questions to direct contacts, users can search for and follow others based on username. From there, any posted question can be sent to manually chosen contacts, or to the user’s followers.

Yes:No 2

Vine star Logan Paul is an owner and partner in Yes/No, and is working with the development team on creating additional social features aimed at Millennials.

In a statement, Yes/No co-founder and CEO, Joe Grano, commented:

Yes/No forces you to make up your mind, and thereby eliminates mindless back and forth. Yes/No Messenger is the most fun, efficient and practical messaging service that will change the way people communicate with each other.

Yes/No is available to download for free on the iTunes App Store and Google Play. The app is also compatible with Apple Watch, allowing users to view and answer questions on the device.

Facebook’s 2015 @Scale Conference Set for Sept. 14

Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

The 2015 edition of Facebook’s @Scale Conference is scheduled for Sept. 14 at the San Jose Convention Center.

The invite-only event is geared toward engineers who build applications and services at scale, for millions of users.

The social network wrote in a blog post:

Building apps and services that scale to millions or even billions of people presents a complex set of engineering challenges, many of them unprecedented. This year alone, we’ve seen advancements in systems and technologies that are more intelligent, more efficient and more responsive than ever before.

We’re excited to gather the community of engineers at this year’s event to openly discuss these challenges and collaborate on the development of new solutions. This model — working together, in the open, to address the technology challenges we face — spurs more innovation and allows us all to move faster.

Facebook also directed interested parties to its @Scale Community and the event’s site.

Engineers: Will you apply to attend the 2015 @Scale Conference?

505 Games Announces Hidden Heroes for Mobile

Hidden Heroes 2

Naughty Bear publisher 505 Games has announced the development of Hidden Heroes for mobile devices. The strategy RPG is built around three core ideas: build, battle and conquer, and challenges players to build their own army before taking it into battle to become the King of the Castle.

Hidden Heroes is being developed by Lume Games, and sees players working to rid Stormvale of “The Chaos Cultists.” As players complete battles, they’ll conquer and control new lands, and can also raid other players in asynchronous player-vs-player battles. Each conquered land produces resources for the player over time.

While the strategy RPG genre has plenty of options, Hidden Heroes looks to stand apart from the crowd via its built-in Rune Scanner, which allows players to add new lands to their kingdom by scanning barcodes or QR codes.

Hidden Heroes

As players collect heroes, they can train or evolve them using free or premium currency. Each hero has a special ability, attack and health stats, adding elements of strategy when forming one’s army.

In addition to player-vs-player content, gamers will also be able to complete PvE campaigns to earn new heroes for their army.

Hidden Heroes is expected to launch for free this Spring. Check back soon for more.
