One chat app to rule them all

We're building the best chat app on earth. Beeper connects to 15+ different chat networks. Unified search, advanced filtering and more. Available on Desktop, Android, iPhone and iPad. The idea is simple: messaging today is painfully fragmented. We're going to fix that. Every time we communicate there is friction lurking under the surface. E.g. Which app did I message her on? Where's that photo gone? Why can't I join an iMessage group from my Android? Our mission is to eliminate that friction and boost the efficiency of the entire human race.

Describe what your company does in 50 characters or less.

Multi-network chat app

What is your company going to make? Please describe your product and what it does or will do.

Beeper is a step-change improvement over current chat apps, similar to how Gmail was 10-100x better than Hotmail. First, Beeper is a single app to chat on iMessage, WhatsApp, and 13 other networks. It's much faster to use than alt-tabbing between different apps. Unified search means you can search once and find the exact message you want without having to remember which network it was sent on. Second, we're building an SDK to enable plugins that run inside the client (ala Gmail).

How long have each of you been working on this? How much of that has been full-time? Please explain.
