Zlango adds icons to text messaging; we go hands-on

Last time we checked, the great thing about text messages was that they're simple, short and don't take much brain power to digest. Zlango goes a different direction. The SMS replacement app, which launched today, adds a world of crazy little icons to your text messages. It's fully themed -- that's The Walking Dead theme you see above -- so you can customize to your heart's content. It's also got an easy on/off toggle if you want to switch back to normal.

You guys might not be ready for it yet, but your kids are gonna love it. Check out the video after the break.

  • Don't care much for the app, but that Walking Dead background is cool. Wish I could just have that.
  • The background is a live wallpaper available in the market.
  • I can't seem to find it. Got a link?
  • If my phone started showing that kind of text to me, I'd whip it right at the wall. If it were a person on another phone responsible for making that text come to me, I’d find where they were and punch them in the stomach. -Suntan
  • "We even have a shit icon" -Nice.
  • Why?..
    I guess it'll appeal to high school girls.
  • I'd say ages 9-16 will love this. I know my sister would.
  • Lol. Love the Back to the Future reference! :-)
  • thats just way too much but yea i agree young kids would enjoy it maybe
  • Matter of fact I think I will show it to my 14yo daughter and see what she thinks.
