Bandoo 8.0

Bandoo gives you cool new ways to express yourself in Live Messenger

Would not it be wonderful if you could send personalized messages on the messenger and e-mails with fun animations that help you express your emotions to the fullest?
Well, that is exactly what Bandoo makes. Once this simple program is on your PC, it will work alongside with your favorite messenger like Yahoo, MSN or AIM.

The program comes loaded with hundreds of funny emoticons and animations in flash. You can access them from a small bar located at the bottom of your messenger. The six buttons will give you access to emoticons in general, text emoticons, winks, nudges, and images. All these cute animations are well categorized. It should be noted that in this latest release, hundreds of animations have been added. For Spanish users, a new section of emoticons has been created for them.

Another interesting feature of Bandoo is that you can send funny animations to your friends via emails. The moment you go to write a new message, at the top of your email editor, you will have access to all Bandoo emoticons. Obviously, your friends must have the program installed on their computers, but if they don't have it, there's no problem, a link to download it will appear instead of the animation.

Furthermore, another great feature is that you can send emoticons more quickly by just typing shortcuts. However, if this becomes a nuisance for you, you can easily disable this function in the settings window. Besides, Bandoo offers entertainment for people over 18 years, but this can also be disabled from the configuration window, if you consider it necessary.
