‘Heelo’, is the first social media app to be made and launched in the UK. The creator and developer is Khurram Asif, a 16 year-old A-Level Student! We worked with Khurram to make his two year dream of launching this app a reality, in creating an amazing launch event for him. It was an absolute pleasure working with such a talented young man who is already achieving so much at such a young age.
Heelo combines instant messaging, voice calling and video calling as well as the ability to make group voice and video calls for up to twelve people – the maximum with any messaging app. It uses 234KB less data on a 1GB plan than WhatsApp giving an additional 19 minutes of use per day. This would save users up to 30% on average from their mobile phone bill. Khurram has also built in e-safety features, such as under-18 accounts, profanity and nudity filters to protect the users.
The event took place at the prestigious May Fair Hotel on 3rd March and was attended by over 100 guests including business owners, financiers and students. Guests were able to hear all about Heelo from Khurram himself as well as trying out the app and enjoying a delicious lunch. The event was a great success and enjoyed by everyone who attended. We love Bubblegum Balloons and the personalised balloons really added some fun and personality to the event. Big thanks also to the amazing Heelo ambassadors that played a huge part in the smooth running of the event.
Heelo is available to download on iTunes now, be sure to check it out!
