Micromax has arrived with a new application called Hookup. The new app which comes bundled with Micromax’s new phone A25 Smarty allows users to share images, audio and video along with standard messaging features.
The app from a first glance looks quite similar to the popular Whatsapp application. The application is free to use and combines the best of instant messaging and text messaging services. Using this application, users will be able to send messages to non-Hookup users as well. The application also has interesting features like doodle pad, location sharing and Walkie-talkie.
A25 Smarty bundled with Hookup allows free sending of 330 messages for a year. Apart from A25 Smarty, the application also arrives bundled with other models from Micromax like A57 Ninja 3.5, A87 Ninja 4.0, Q34 and X335.
Contact list management in Hookup is highly efficient allowing users to send easy invites to friends and block contacts if necessary. Users will also be able to receive notifications and view, manage and search files and messages using the application. Full SMS feature and instant messaging could be availed only after activating the app.
Micromax has mentioned that Hookup application consumes only a meager amount of memory, battery charge and data usage which makes it a healthy replacement to Whatsapp application. Hookup also has faster push speed and also consumes only a little bandwidth.
Users can activate Hookup application by tapping the Activation icon on the home screen and entering their mobile number. Hookup is currently available on Android and MediaTek platforms.
