As an iPhone user, I was tired and frustrated with getting stuck in group chats with people who had Androids and turned our blue bubble group chat to green, negatively impacting the group messaging experience. Some of the challenges included photos would come in different sizes, message status (delivered indicators), I no longer had the option of leaving a group, and all I could do was put the group on mute.

While researching users' needs around messaging, everyone we talked to seemed to have the same frustrations with messaging. iPhone users were annoyed, and Android users felt bullied into switching to an iPhone. There's a clear problem, and nobody has developed a good solution. As a designer, I'm always motivated by using design to improve everyday interactions, and there is no shortage of problems to solve in this space.

Group chats can be so overwhelming. You put your phone down for five minutes and can miss a whole conversation. There had to be a better way to stay connected to friends without feeling this heavy pressure to stay on top of every notification. On top of that, those dreaded green bubbles in a group chat often meant missing out on what should've been a fun and engaging texting experience.
- Brittany Moorer, Co-Founder & CCO, Let's Hop
We realized current apps were not cutting it. They were overwhelming, outdated, and boring. We wanted to bring the perfect blend of email, instant messaging, and texting features into one app.
We help power texters that feel overwhelmed, frustrated, or tired of navigating from numerous messaging apps to have fun and stay connected.
