aJoy Messenger

Conventional messengers are mostly limited to text and image messages. The aJoy messenger goes further and introduces interactive contents. This enables outstanding and also thoughtful messages for friends and brings more fun to the user.

Innovative new features

It is possible to pack an aJoy image or video in wrapping paper. The recipient can then extract the contents by rubbing it or one can invite the recipient to play a little game and send him a puzzle of a personal image. More new types of special messages are being added continuously. Of course aJoy also offers "normal" text, photo, audio and video messages.

Easy and free

The installation and use of aJoy is very easy. Registration is done with your own phone number and only takes a few seconds. The friends list is automatically provided from the existing phone contacts. Unlike other messengers, you can also send aJoy messages to people who don’t have the app installed yet. The app and its services are free for all users.

Privacy

Also, aJoy is clearly different from other messengers in the handling of personal data. Therefore, data is consistently stored only locally, no data is kept on the server and the communication is encrypted. Furthermore, no user information is collected and no user activity is recorded.

That's new

In the latest version also voice messages can be turned into a surprise by adding special audio effects.

Features

  • FRIENDS: buddies list is automatically set up from address book.
  • PRIVATE CHAT: message with friends even if they're offline.
  • GROUP CHAT: create a group and chat with all participants.
  • MEDIA: share pictures, videos and audio.
  • SURPRISE: "wrap" your message and let the receiver scratch off the present.
  • GAMES: entertain friends and send puzzles created with your own pictures.
  • EFFECTS: record voice messages and use funny audio effects.
