IMVU (http://www.imvu.com/signup/index.php) — an online community and social entertainment network where members use 3D avatars to meet new people, chat, create and play games — has released their first Mac client. In addition, the company is also introducing its first iPhone App, IMVU 2Go, for iPhone and iPod touch devices. Both are free.
IMVU’s new Mac client delivers social entertainment experiences that have been available on the PC since the company first launched IMVU in 2004. Users new to the IMVU platform can create a free account and select an avatar of their choice. Members can then immediately begin exploring IMVU to meet new people, chat, create and play games with their friends. They can also check out IMVU’s virtual goods catalog of more than four million items in order to begin creating online personas as unique as they are, says IMVU CEO Cary Rosenzweig.
The company’s new IMVU 2Go App for the iPhone and iPod touch — available at the Apple App Store — gives IMVU members the ability to enjoy IMVU anytime, anywhere. With IMVU 2Go, members can text, chat, send and receive messages, accept friend requests and group invites, upload pictures to their personal IMVU gallery and more.
