Hey! is a Universal App Template where you can send short messages like hey! to all those friends who are registered in the app with just a tap. It’s that simple, the simplest communication app ever.
You can search for friends by name in the Search screen, add them to your Friends list and send them a hey!, attach a picture to it or your current location, or simple text of the selected hey!. They will receive a Push Notification and can easily reply to your “hey!” by sending it back.
Users are able to block/unblock other users, remove the from their list and make group of friends to send heys! all in once, again, with just a tap!

Since its backend is by Parse you don’t have to buy any domain/hosting, there are NO php files to upload to a web server so you’ll save some money for sever side. Worried about Parse shutting down? It won’t, please check this out: http://fvimagination.tumblr.com/post/153383547781/parse-sdk-will-not-shutdown-in-2017-thanks-to

We’ve recently found out that some developers have bought our app templates, reskinned them just a bit and put them on sale on other source code markets similar to CodeCanyon, saying that they developed and own such source codes.
That is a serious copyright infringement, developers who buy our templates are allowed to reskin and sell them as apps on the App Store (accordingly to the License type they’ve purchased a template for), but are not allowed to put our original source codes for sale on source code markets, including CodeCanyon. We will report developers who made copyright infringements to the competent authorities. Thanks.
