Hoozin is a startup company that was founded with the goal of creating the first mobile application that let’s you “hangout” with your friends. Hoozin is all about having fun with your friends on mobile, its unique and innovative design pattern lets you do just that. Today, the mobile social experience is pretty much the same on every app – a long boring list of messages (feed).
Written words are the narrowest form of communication – In real life we have a lot of sophisticated means of communication, but there is no way to fully express them online, and no way to capture them as a group.
The basic form of communication at hoozin remains text messages. However, hoozin is so much different than the messaging applications out there. Hoozin shows the participants in the chat as if they were sitting around a table, and the messages appear in the center like a pile of cards. Each of the participants in the group can always be seen, therefore you can constantly see who’s online, who’s typing, share secrets play the roulette and there are much more cool staff on the way.
