A team, developing messenger for iOS, created a truly instant chat called Hiboo. Its main distinction from a number of already existing messengers is that the user is able to see what his interlocutor is typing in real time: all the typed messages instantly appear in the chat window, even before “Send” button is pressed.

“We all know what it feels like to impatiently watch the chat cloud with “XXX is typing…”. With Hiboo you don’t have to send the message per se – the receiver sees what you are typing, while you are typing it, with no delays”, - says Artur Kolayan, marketing manager in the team.

The start-up team involves 6 people, they work in London, that’s where they all met. The founders of the messenger are Mathew Rigolo from France, Andriy Mariin from Ukraine (Kharkiv) and Eleonor Harding from South Africa.

The developers believe their App will be highly appreciated on dating websites or for exchanging urgent messages like drop of stock markets or a winning goal.

Last summer a team of Ukrainian developers launched a messenger for sending “heavy” files up to 10 Gb.
