This morning, PPLCONNECT announced that they are shifting their focus away from the consumer:
Although we greatly value the time and feedback you have given us over the years, we have decided to pivot from being a consumer driven business to focus on partnerships with mobile manufacturers, operators and businesses. For this reason, the free consumer version will no longer be available.
Yappy’s presence as the best SMS from computer/tablet service is now even stronger. With both Pushbullet and MightyText restricting free accounts to a handful of SMS messages a day, and PPLCONNECT refocusing away from the consumer market, Yappy’s goals to fill a need rise in value.
If you are a PPLCONNECT user give Yappy a spin before you are left out in the cold at the end of the month!
