We’ve released a few new features that would make it easier for you to invite friends and use Pring. Here’s the rundown:
Improved Online Private Messaging
Next time when you’re on a some one’s Pring page, there will be a new option under the Pringer’s picture:
Click on the picture and you can then send a direct message to the Pringer:
Previously, whenever you invited someone via SMS they received a message such as “Jeera100 wants to follow your updates on Pring…”. This was fine but sometimes, your friends might not know who Jeera100 is. To improve this, we’ve added your cell number to the invite message. Now it will read “Jeera100 (0321-123-4567) wants to follow your updates on Pring…”. This should make it more transparent to the invitee who is inviting them.
Also, you can SMS a valid mobile number to Pring and we will convert it into an invite.
Whenever your friend accepts your invitation and signs up on Pring; they just want to start receiving your updates. But instead, they had to register with a username. Setting a username is a hard thing to do. It has to be the right length and with the right characters.
To make it easier for new users to join and receive updates right away, we’ve removed the need to have a username. When you join Pring, you will be given a new random username likePringerr129. You can always change your username with the Name command.
We’ve also made a lot of minor updates to improve the overall service. For example, we’ve noticed that 90% of all communication on Pring is in Roman Urdu, so we’re making Urdu our default language wherever we can. We’re working on multi-lingual features so you can select which interface language you want soon.
Till then, Happy Pringing!
