Welcome to eyetime’s first blog post! Our goal is to keep up a regular blog so you can stay in the loop on everything eyetime, from app updates and company news, to how-to’s about app features and other industry news and trends. The first thing we wanted to share was the big eyetime app update that is officially available on the App and Play Stores.

So, what has changed with the eyetime app, and what is this update all about?

We have completely overhauled it, from its most basic functions to its most complex features. Even though the app looks the same, the technical side of it is much, much different. The app, which has been completely rebuilt from scratch, now boasts a mightier engine that will help boost eyetime and give us the ability to add more features and capabilities in the future. We have plenty in store for eyetime and are excited to keep working on it to make it an absolutely fantastic experience for our users.

Here’s a list of the features you can expect from the new version:

  • Video calls: call any contact with HD quality from anywhere in the world for free. This includes calls made from Android to iPhone and iPhone to Android.
  • Voice calls: chat with friends and family over your WiFi or 4G/3G network for a more personal conversation than just texting.
  • Instant messages: send and receive 1-to-1 text and voice messages to any eyetime contact instantly.
  • Group chats: create groups with as many people and catch up with family, friends and colleagues in one chat.
  • Self-destructing messages: keep important conversations private by setting a time limit on how long your messages exist.
  • Nearby places: discover hidden treasures in your local neighbourhood straight from the app.
  • Location sharing: make it easy to find your friends when you’re trying to meet up by showing them exactly where you are.

‘The team has been working very hard to set up the groundwork of the app so we can take it to the next level,’ eyetime CEO Rouzbeh Pasha explains. ‘It may look almost identical, but it’s a completely different technology and foundation. We have big plans for the future of the eyetime app that can now be accomplished because of the strong app foundations.’
