This is a brand new FREE app that I just found out about today. It's simply clever. The developer applied a compression algorhythm to the standard SMS texting and created a plug-in to SMS on the Android OS that makes long texts (450 characters or more) into one that fits in just one 160 character text. This does require both parties to have it installed but it's so small and runs completely in the background that once installed you'll forget you have it. It's essentially a zip file compression for texting. It runs completely on its own with no additional user-input.

I sent myself a text of over 400 characters, it compressed it to about 130, sent it, and I received one text of those 130+ characters, which then automatically uncompressed back to the original over 400 characters, word for word, letter for letter, punctuation complete.
You folks know I am not one for jumping on the marketing bandwagon but I am simply inspired by its ingenuity. Let me know what you think. If you want, send me a PM and I'll send you my number for texting. Let's put this to the test.
