colaInstant messaging can be said to be a compulsory life skill in this day and age, but as with the many different kinds of personalities in which we see in humans, so too, will such nuances of personalities spill over to the interactive text messaging world. At times, you might feel as though you need to go through a long winded conversation just to plan something simple, and the app known as Cola on the iOS platform intends to make interactive text messaging a whole lot simpler.

The Cola Bubbles feature in the Cola messaging app will introduce additional interactivity and functionality. For instance, rather than to invite someone out via text, just send them a Bubble with three times whenever you are available, and they can pick from a range of options that convey the message back. If you are so busy that you can’t even type a reply, just share your location with a time period locked in (ranging from 15, 30 or 60 minutes).

Different kinds of Bubbles comprise of polling and shared to-do lists, and the whole point is to make them accessible from a text message conversation, as opposed to installing and running even more apps. Heck, even those without the Cola app can receive Bubbles, now how about that?
