Have you ever felt overwhelmed by the sheer mass of communication apps and networks, phone numbers and text messages constantly flowing around you? Have you ever carried on a conversation that spanned across multiple communication channels? What starts out as a text message can quickly become a series of tweets and a mountain of email. This is where Meshin comes in.

Meshin, first available on Outlook initially launching for mobile on the Android platform, is an all-in-one solution for keeping in touch. Instead of having an email sent to your phone and then having to respond via a text message, you’ll just centralize your communication with Meshin. Likewise, it can consolidate your communications from Facebook and Twitter.

Why are you wasting so much time using fifteen different platforms and applications to keep in touch? You’re expending time and energy that you simply don’t need to. Meshin’s mission (I bet you can’t say that three times quickly!) is to help you get rid of all of the clutter and confusion. We don’t have enough time in the day as it is and are always looking for ways to save time. What better way could there be than to trim unnecessary lines of communication?

Currently, the application has the ability to understand the information inside of your communications, and is being funded by Xerox. Being able to integrate your phone, email address, text messages, Facebook messages and Tweets into ONE place is simply a beautiful thing.

How do you communicate with others? How many applications and devices do you use each day to talk to people? Let us hear your horror stories in the comments section. When was the last time you had a conversation that spanned more than one means of communication?
