Messaging apps are not exactly in short supply on Android, but have you ever tried one that lets you communicate anything with a simple dot? This brave new concept is the focal selling point of Pipe – Micro Messaging App, and you can find out how it has been executed in practice in this review.

The main idea of this Pipe Messenger app is that a dot can serve as a shorthand for many different things. For example, it can be a wonderful alternative for missed calls. In today’s fast-living age, a lot of people use missed calls as a quick signal for the other person to call them back or to confirm something. With Pipe, you can use a dot to convey the same message in a much more unambiguous way. Sometimes a missed call will just be a missed call, but with a dot you can be sure the one of the receiving end will get the message.

A dot can also be used in other ways. Provided that you subscribe to a feed, you will be able to receive links to all kinds of day-to-day events in the form of a dot. The link is opened in the app itself, so there’s no need to switch to your browser in order to see it. The kind of versatility a single dot can offer is quite a surprise, especially when you consider how flawlessly the whole idea has been implemented.

And of course, sometimes the simplicity of a dot is a reward in itself. If you don’t like indulging in a lengthy chat session, send a dot to your loved ones to let them know you’re thinking of them and see if they text you a dot back! Who says we need an entire conversation to feel better?

As for how the app handles, the overall impression is very positive. The user interface is quite smooth and easy to use. This is a big help in making the experience as straightforward as possible, which is exactly what we want from this app. You also have the option of choosing different themes to match your style, which is a welcome addition.

The concept of a messenger with zero characters is an intriguing one, and Pipe – Micro Messaging App has done a commendable job of turning this idea into a reality. Give it a shot – you might be surprised how much more effective your communication with others can be with just a couple of dots.
