Jaxtr – The Next Big Thing
Filed under: Links, Reviews, Services, web 2.0
How many of us have wished, that we get rid of the stupid old headphones and mics and wished that we speak to our friends abroad/local in the good old telephone, yet with minimal call charges? Well, the solution is here, Jaxtr.
Jaxtr was developed primarily for bringing your phone into your social networks. How does it work? Simple, create a Jaxtr account and you get a personalized widget, that you can post anywhere. Next if some one wishes to call you then all they have to do is enter their telephone number. Jaxtr will then call the first person first and then connect him to your phone (which you have configured in your Jaxtr account), thus your phone number remains private, yet at the same time both you and your friend can speak normally over telephone sans headphones, mics and for that matter the internet.
Chuck minimal charges, it is absolutely FREE. It can be thought of like a simple three way call initiated by Jaxtr so you don’t have to pay.
A few things I personally feel will make Jaxtr even better:
- SMS capabilities, the widget says send text, where as the message comes to you as an email, if SMS is made possible then nothing like it.
- Jax points, there is only one way to gain more Jax points, and that is by helping them spread the word, this might be a beautiful business strategy which might increase their popularity, but then it would be ideal if they introduce more means of earning Jax points. They however offer 100 Jax points at the start of every month.
