Squawk Messenger was a messaging and social application that was initially released on iOS on June 24, 2013. The application’s development team was led by CEO and gaming vet Alex Karweit, and — up until August 2013 — “Creative Juggernaut” Chloe Bregman. The application’s advisory board was made up entirely of teenagers, giving the app’s creators unique insight.

Squawk offered a variety of ways with which its users could express themselves, whether it’s through the creation of memes, drawings, collages, “selfies,” animated stickers, GIF images, voice messaging, and of course, text messaging. Users could also add each other as friends a la Facebook, which prevented unwanted contact. Like Kik Messenger, Squawk had a username based system, so no phone number is required to use the app.

Squawk Messenger gave users plenty of options with which to customize their social experience: everything from profile images, chat bubble colors, and conversation backgrounds could be altered to fit various styles and tastes. As is the case with many other messaging apps, users could fill their profiles with their name and email address, but two notable standout sections included the user’s ability to add their school and a “5 Things You Didn’t Know About Me” section.

The app was placed in internal beta for Android devices, but never made it out of that stage. Squawk Messenger quietly disappeared from iTunes in early 2014 and is no longer available.
