With $46M Now In The Bank, textPlus Looks To Go Big Abroad, Launches Cheap International Calling On Android
It's been a big year for the artist formerly known as GOGII. Back in October, the Southern California-based startup raised $18 million in series D financing from The Raine Group, Kleiner Perkins, Matrix Partners and GRP, bringing its total investment to just over $46 million. The round was a testament to the continuing success of its flagship product, textPlus, a free text messaging app that has seen 40 million downloads in the U.S. and Canada to date -- half of which came in 2012 alone. In recognition of this phenomenal adoption, the startup rebranded from GOGII to textPlus in October.
