Why Would 8 Million People Subscribe to Pinger (.com) for $199

Ad-Supported Pinger Draws 8 Million Users, Including Tots Too Young for Their Own Phones

And how much would this no type-in traffic no Estibot value name be worth with these metrics?

Just one name developed into a site or app or ad-supported app (see below) can make your dreams come true.

Think about it? 

From AdAge: "Pinger and TextFree users (TextFree is the predecessor company) send more than 2 billion texts and use 75 million voice minutes every month. Mr. Sweeney said that Pinger is the fifth-most-installed app on iOS devices, and is now on almost 20% of them, and is the seventh-largest carrier in the country by SMS volume.

Pinger makes money with its ad-supported apps, bringing in 60¢ to 75¢ per month on every user, Mr. Sweeney said. With the company coming off its best quarter ever, it's on target to hit $30 million in annual revenue, almost all advertising generated. Its cost-per-thousand ranges between 25¢ and $4 with averages of around $1 at the end of 2012."
