Mumbai, 4th October, 2016: Today, messaging apps are everywhere. According to Harvard Business Review, 6 out of 10 global apps are messaging applications used by 1.4 billion people around the world. What’s more astonishing is that this figure is growing by 12% every year.1 But where would these messaging applications be without its 1.4 billion users?
We often hear the success of messenger apps such as, WhatsApp, WeChat and Hike gaining a large user base and subsequent popularity. However, the point that is often taken for granted is the users contribution to the success of these messaging apps. Aside from being able to send messages, what other benefits do these users receive?
Here is an app that is about to add another first to its name. n-gage, the most private messenger, which was launched in January this year has already gained more than 8 lakhs of downloads and is now launching a program to reward its users. n-gage is now poised to give away 250 million shares worth of Equity* to its global users. What’s more, India is the first out of 50 countries to be allocated with Equity for its Indian users.
Indian users will get over 60 million shares worth of Equity* in n-gage. The first one million founding Indian users to register onto n-gage, will automatically be credited 20 N-Gage Loyalty Points (NLP), equivalent to 20 shares in n-gage, and become partners in a business that they have helped grow.
n-gage users, or rather the “Champions” will be able to earn more N-Gage Loyalty Points when they get their friends and family to use the app. Further details can be found in the rewards part of the n-gage app. Each N-Gage Loyalty Point can be exchanged at an appropriate time with either one n-gage share or its cash equivalent.
Speaking on the occasion Mr. Ajit Patel, CEO & Founder of n-gage said, “We firmly believe that it is the users who make any app successful. These users normally get no more than the use of the product for their contribution. With the N-Gage Champions Program, we want our users to partner in our growth and share in the success. The program aims to reward users for their trust and love of n-gage.”
n-gage has issued 1111 million shares out of which 250 million shares has been reserved for the benefit of its users. These shares are owned by Wemet Loyalty Company, a sister company of n-gage, which is governed by an independent board of directors. n-gage has agreed with Wemet Loyalty Company that n-gage users will be able to exchange their N-gage Loyalty Points, for either n-gage shares, or its value when n-gage is sold, or publicly listed on the London Stock Exchange which it plans to do end of 2020.
In addition to benefitting from this exciting reward, users will be able to safeguard their messages and content from being abused by receivers or prying eyes. With more than 15 unique privacy features dedicated to helping them keep their messages private, they will be able to take back messages they have sent by accident from the receiver’s end with Extract. For complete control, Stop Screenshot or Stop Copy/Share/Forward, prevents users’ contacts from taking screenshots of conversations, or stops them from copying, sharing or forwarding certain messages to other people. As all messages are end to end encrypted, users will now be able to understand the benefit of seeing encryption live on their device with Scramble, a feature that pixelates images, and jumble text.
As each privacy feature has been developed to suit the individual’s needs, even when the user loses his/ her phone, they will be able to erase all their n-gage data remotely with Burn. What’s more, users will be able to transfer their important media images and documents into Safe Gallery, a hidden area which is password protected.
With messaging apps remaining on trend because of its users, now is the chance to grab the opportunity and become a partner and share in its success. n-gage, the most Private and Rewarding messenger is available to download now on Android and iOS across the globe.

n-gage, the Playful, Private and Transforming Lives messenger was recently launched in India by Mr. Ajit Patel, CEO & Founder of n-gage.

It is the world’s first app to present users with a host of features to encourage users to say what they mean, whilst choose from an array of unique privacy features to safeguard their messages.
Unlike other apps, as soon as the user joins, they can start sending messages and have video calls with family and friends who do not have n-gage. Through features like stickers, greeting cards, Chat makeovers, users will be able to enhance their messages and express what they really mean. n-gage doesn’t stop here; it enables chats to stay private, with the app offering an expansive range of privacy features to suit individual’s needs. With features like ‘Extract’, users will be able to take back messages they have accidentally sent from the receiver’s end, or send self-destructing messages with “Blink”.

Users can share messages, doodles, and attachments on various other social platforms such as WhatsApp, Facebook, Emails and SMS, without requiring the other person to download the app3. Also unlike other group chats, with n-gage users can create groups with up to 300 participants from their contact lists to enjoy multiple conversations under one group. With this, n-gage users can share multimedia files and even exit several group conversations without leaving the group.
