Sugarcandy allows people to custom tailor their mobile SMS-based communications to their own needs – it was based off an earlier project experimenting w/ SMS networks. We offer the ability to SMS in ad-hoc mobile chat groups and send and receive SMS messages via a web interface. We also offer a simple RSS-based API to allow users to make their own Sugarcandy-based mobile tools. The software was designed to allow new mobile apps to be built upon the Sugarcandy mobile infrastructure.
A good example is Casablanca – a big mobile game about figuring out who to trust and who not to. Players are secretly assigned teams and must use their wits – and their mobile phones – to figure each other out. Casablanca was awarded a grant from mtvU and Cisco and has been extraordinarily well received – check it out!
