Using intuitive Drag & Drop operation, a top-design straightforward user interface, hiding the all powerful technology under the surface, ComBOTS brings back fun into communication through permanent and private one to one connections to friends and family. Each of these connections is represented by a high quality 3D character with animated emotions that make icons, smilies or greeting cards look outdated.
From now on anything, like pictures, files or video clips can be sent using
Drag & Drop within seconds. Media messages might contain photos, voice, folders or animated emotions. If both friends are online, quite naturally a chat or - with just another click - a free phone conversation can evolve.
