Preccelerator® Program Company Jambo Launches in Android and iOS App Stores

Jambo FeatureGraphic_1024x500

Congratulations to SAM Preccelerator Company Zero Mass Energy (“ZME”) on the launch of their first product Jambo in the Android Google Play and iOS App Stores. Jambo is a chat app that combines social productivity with integrated social gaming.  “Jambo’s approach is to allow these games and tools to be utilized right within your chat threads without having to leave the app” says founder and CEO, Carey Chico.   While this first version allows the user to play games, send real-time character animation, as well as voice and photos – future releases will add a large number of entertainment and productivity functions.

ZME has also launched their new Jambo Chat Platform, that is a licensable platform to help businesses scale and retain their user base by utilizing a diverse set of social productivity and social play features. Companies that have a large number of apps or sites, can take these fragmented user bases and combine them into a single community promoting engagement and retention.  “We see an opportunity to create a pervasive chat platform that goes where you want to go, rather than you having to go to it.  There are so many isolated and siloed app experiences that we think could benefit greatly from our technology.”

Get it On Google Play
