Why SMS when you can Pinch?
Pinch is a FREE, easy- to- use, highly engaging; cross platform phone Messenger service that will
change the way you interact with friends forever. It has location based mobile social networking
features integrated for greater fun. With Pinch Group Messaging, instant group communication
has never been easier! Also send free messages to your non Pinch friends* and chat in new exciting
ways. So switch from SMS to Pinch and chat for FREE with your Pinch buddies across handset
platforms & even those who are not on Pinch*
WHY USE PINCH ?
★ NO HIDDEN COST: Once you and your friends download the application, you can use it to chat
as much as you want. Send as many messages a day to your Pinch friends for free! Pinch uses your
Internet connection: 3G/GPRS or Wi-Fi when available.
★ LOCATION BASED MESSAGING - Locate friends nearby on maps using location pins. Get directions
to meet them. Register places travelled. Share social updates on the move.
★ GROUP CHAT: Enjoy group conversations with your contacts by adding unlimited number of
friends in a single group.
★ MULTIMEDIA: Send Video & Images to make your messaging with friends more exciting
★ NO INTERNATIONAL CHARGES: Just like there is no added cost to send an international email,
there is no cost to send Pinch messages internationally. Chat with your friends all over the world as
long as they have Pinch installed and avoid those international SMS costs.
★ SAY NO TO PINS AND USERNAMES: Why even bother having to remember yet another PIN or
username? Pinch works with your phone number, just like SMS would, and integrates flawlessly with
your existing phone address book.
★ NO NEED TO ADD BUDDIES: Your Address Book is used to automatically connect you with your
contacts. Your contacts who already have Pinch messenger will be automatically displayed as your
Pinch contacts. Also for partner carriers, you could use Pinch to send SMS messages to non Pinch
friends at a very nominal cost *
★ AND MUCH MORE: Chatting with friends includes read receipts, picture sharing, hundreds of
emoticons and much more!
* This feature available only for airtel users in India currently.

Retarded. Broadcasts you location constantly killimg your battery and privacy issue.. Slow ugly and for a lack of better word stupid
Great concept, big batt drain. I'll look back into it latter :)
Didn't like the whole location thing. Uninstalled :-/
Slow on my phone;interesting concept though and if it becomes better I'll recommend it to others. Also don't like the location awareness.
like the idea of combining social networking, sms'ing, and location based gaming. a little overkill for me, but I'm sure many others will enjoy it.
No way, it wants my phone number.
Forces close on htc lengend. A good app but need fixing. Kills battery life too. Uninstalled
Good app but animations don't work I am using a dell streak with 2.1
Great concept really, used it on the Droid 1 then switched to the fascinate and guess there was an update which has consistent fc's so can't even open
