Over the past several years, text messaging has become an important tool for families, friends, and co-workers to stay in contact quickly and easily. More recently, it has also become a clutch way for people to communicate and collaborate on the job, oftentimes with group messages becoming a sort of on-the-go whiteboard for tossing around ideas or simply setting up meetings.

I can't tell you the amount of times that I've been on a video call with someone and suddenly realized that there needed to be a third, or even fourth, person involved. Fortunately, the folks over at Fring are there to save the day... sort of.  You see, they have this great new feature called Group Video Calling, but it's in a limited beta right now.

All cynicism aside, this is a pretty cool feature for those that actually use video calling a lot.

The internet start-up GroupMe, a company which aims to provide an easy group texting and conference calling solution to the masses, has just released a very awesome Android app. With the app, users can create groups of peers, friends, or family members and easily send out mass texts or create conference calls.

As someone who does a lot of conference calls, this app is pretty bad ass. Having just checked it out, it seems easy to use and the interface is very clean.
