    MXit 5.4 Logo

    MXit – the Ultimate Chat for your phone!

    MXit Lifestyle brings you MXit V5.4

    Version 5.4 Features

    1. Select Contact For Content

    From Tradepost or Gallery you can now select content e.g. wallpapers, mood cards, etc., which can be sent directly to your contacts. So easy or what!

    2. Inline Images

    Allows small thumbnail images to appear as part of the text conversations.

    3. Audio Recording

    The ability to record audio snippets up to 60 seconds, that can be sent as files to your contacts. Now we’re talking!

    4. Emoticon Packs

    This feature allows for the downloading and transfer of emoticon packs which can be sent to your MXit friends. Share the love!

    5. MXit Vibes

    You know have the ability to send vibes to your contacts which will prompt their mobile phone to vibrate. Rad or what! Vibes can be played even if their message alert vibration is switched off. However, the disable vibe prompt, allows you to toggle between switching your vibes off and on.

    6. Scroll To Unread Message

    For your convenience, when opening a contact screen, this feature will ensure that the conversation scrolls to the first unread message.

    7. Transfer Files In The Background

    Sending and receiving skinz, cards, images and audio files is now done in the background by displaying a progress bar within the conversation screen itself.

    8. Emoticon Screen Heading

    Added a heading for the emoticon screen that has a one word describing your emoticon image i.e. Excited, Happy, etc.

    9. Invite Improvements

    When a MXit user adds a contact, you can now include an invitation message, to be viewed by the Mxiteer receiving the invite.

    10. Alert Profiles

    Updated the alert system so that each set of alerts is grouped in a profile, either as General, Meeting or Silent. A profile can then be assigned to apply to an entire group, or to a single contact. You can also select a custom sound, from the mobile phones memory or file system to be used as an alert – if your mobile supports file access.

    11. MXit Markup (Format text)

    Now you can format your text message with bold, underline, italics and creating your own selectable link. Makes it so much easier to get your point across.

    12. Scalable Vector Graphics File Support

    Added support to play scalable vector graphics. What is SVG? It’s an XML specification and file format for describing two-dimensional vector graphics.

    14. Phone support for V5.4

    Due to the large number of features that have been added for this release, support has been dropped for a number of older and low end mobile phones.

    Therefore V5.4 will only be supported on the following handsets:

    MXit in your multi-language

    MXit is available in many languages since Version 5.2!

    • Afrikaans – South African language.
    • German (Dutch/Deutsch)
    • English
    • Spanish (Español)
    • French (Français)
    • Italian (Italiano)
    • Portuguese (Português, Brazilian and European)
    • Xhosa (isiXhosa) – South African african language
    • Zulu (isiZulu) – South African african language

    This will help if someone isn’t familiar with English language words on their mobile and are struggling to get MXit to chat with!
    Afrikaans, Zulu and Xhosa are three other official languages spoken in South Africa, the country of creation of MXit.

    I agree with the statements that the market for Xhosa and Zulu speakers is quite big in South Africa, as I experience a lot of feedback on my mobile wap site ( from native South African language speakers! And it’s quite an exciting new market.

    Check out this for a quick language primer 😉
    At a time when MXit has reached 5.4 million users, there’s still much more potential left in the company from South Africa. At a solid 10-12K new registrations per day.
