just.me is enhancing the capabilities of your smartphone

just.me upgrades your ability to message your friends and family on your smartphone. just.me is simple, free and unlimited. It is available in 32 languages across 155 countries. The company was founded by Keith Teare in 2011. Its investors include Khosla Ventures, Google Ventures, True Ventures, betaworks, SV Angel, Michael Arrington, and Archimedes Labs.

At the recent DEMO Mobile Conference, just.me announced the launch of its global social messaging app for iPhone and iPod touch that puts you in control of your mobile messages and media sharing. just.me provides the best of texting, email and social networking apps all in one place. With just.me, in a single message, you can create a message with multiple photos, videos, and voice messages, add whatever text you want, and send to as many recipients as you desire. just.me puts you in control by letting you choose to send shared messages, keep messages and moments private, or even publish them for the world to see.

“The time has come to put the user in control of their own social network, combining the best of social messaging with the best of social media. just.me does this by providing a private cloud for each user to re-use their information and media as they want,” said Keith Teare, founder of just.me.

Just.me takes social messaging a step further — saving all of your messages and media in your private cloud that you alone control. Over time, your “just me” private cloud becomes an archive of your life and relationships with beautiful pictures, videos and audio recordings that can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere.

“just.me disrupts the messaging apps market by being the first robust, global social messaging service that puts users in control of their mobile messaging and media sharing experiences,” said Vinod Khosla, founder of Khosla Ventures, and an investor in just.me.“We selected just.me to present at DEMO Mobile 2013 because it reimagines what your social network would look like if it was built around you and your phone,” said Erick Schonfeld, executive producer of DEMO. “It is a powerful social messaging platform that replaces five or six apps to create a single point
from which to manage all of your relationships-across the continuum from private to public. I used it myself on vacation and I’m hooked.”
