At Banters, we believe there’s something magical in conversations: rapports with friends reveal insights into your daily life, sense of humor, relationships. People have always saved letters and cards from loved ones, but now with digital conversations, Banters is your scrapbook for saving those quotes.
But it can be hard to write down conversations. The original iteration of Banters required launching the app or visiting the web page, opening up a new post, attributing someone, filling out the different message boxes with who said what, adding tags, then finally posting. You’d lose memory of the quote before you hit the first message box.
Fortunately, that’s all about to change. With our new design, the post creator has been simplified to make posting as natural as having the conversation. Making the process even swifter is the ability to use Siri to post: just hit the microphone button on your keyboard while creating a post and repeat the quote you want to save. It’s quick and easy.
If you look at the history of posting photographs online, you’ll notice an explosion of images that coincided with the rising popularity of digital cameras. People no longer had to go through the arduous task of scanning their photos to post them — they could simply upload straight to the web. We think Siri could have a similar effect when it comes to helping people remember and share their conversations.
This launch includes a bunch of other new features as well. You can now attribute however many people you want, and include as many lines of conversation as you’d like. We’ve added a “like” button and an activity stream. Posting a conversation is easy with our parse function: input it as you want and we’ll do the work. You can even text it in by hooking up your phone number here. And we have a beautiful new iPhone app and an update to the Android app.
We’re excited. Check us out, quote your friends, have fun saving great moments.
