Mobile communications technology is all about connecting people, so it’s refreshing that to promote its latest bit of techno-gadgetry – a new app TU Go (which sounds a great addition to your connectability BTW) – O2 are getting people connected to face up to a series of challenges.
It’s all part of The Huffington Post and O2 presented O2 challenges, featuring Zoe Salmon and Matt Edmondson. But Zoe and Matt are just the celebrity gloss on what looks like quite a bit of legwork from a heap of volunteers.
During the course of their challenges, the two front the creation of a recording studio in a bare room at the 02 Arena, and the rejuvenation of some wasteland into a lovely garden. The challenges are carried out in conjunction with charity CentrePoint.
End result aside, the challenges are there to show just what O2′s new TU Go app can do, and it seems quite a lot.
The TU Go app can turn any of your tech that doesn’t have a SIM card into your phone. You need to be an O2 customer, download the app, register and away you go. You can text from your tablet, call a friend from your PC, or if you’re in the ‘middle of nowhere with no reception on your phone, this app allows users to make that connection at the touch of a button – provided you have Wi-Fi coverage’.
