TigerText, secure mobile messaging platform, announced a $21 million second round of funding. The new funding will be dedicated to growth and further development of the TigerText API. The API focus will concentrate on integration with EHRs, PACs, and laboratory information systems. TigerText CEO, Brad Brooks, believes that secure messaging is moving towards a new era. Instead of a compliance tool, Brooks believes secure messaging will soon be considered a value add.
As messaging apps scramble to out-feature the competition, Telegram has launched a gaming platform within its Bot API. Most messaging apps have now included bot capabilities within their apps, but Telegram has upped its game with the ability to build games within the messaging app.
