Sabeer Bhatia launches JaxtrSMS, free texting app


Jaxtr, founded by Sabeer Bhatia and Yogesh Patel, has
launched JaxtrSMS, a cross-platform, open texting application to send SMS to
anyone in the world for free.


A mobile user can send a text SMS to any mobile phone in the world without
requiring the receiver to have the JaxtrSMS application installed on phone.


This open facet of JaxtrSMS distinguishes it from other
free mobile messaging applications where messages can only be sent within a
closed network to people who also have the same app installed. JaxtrSMS retains
the number of the user and no new number is required while signing up for the
JaxtrSMS service.



We present JaxtrSMS which does to SMS what Hotmail did for e-mail. Now, mobile
users can leverage our free and open application to send messages to their
contacts anywhere across the world without having to pay anything. The fact
that our application has been downloaded by users across 197 countries in just
a few weeks since our soft launch amply reflects our belief that JaxtrSMS will
prove to immensely useful to mobile users across the world,” said Sabeer
Bhatia, CEO & co-founder, Jaxtr.



JaxtrSMS can be downloaded from or from the app store on the handset for
free and is compatible with all mobile operating systems including the iPhone,
Blackberry, Android and J2ME.


JaxtrSMS was completely developed in India. I am proud
to showcase this as an example of Indian innovation and ingenuity,” said Yogesh
Patel, president & co-founder, Jaxtr.
