Telstra launches New Year's Eve text app

Thursday 6 December 2012 | 22:31 CET | News
Telstra has launched a free Sydney New Year's Eve app. The app, developed in conjunction with the City of Sydney, will allow users on any network to load fifty text messages prior to 6pm on New Year's Eve, which Telstra will then send out free of charge from midnight. Users will also be able to message the Sydney Harbour Bridge and see their celebration message up in lights on the Sydney Harbour Bridge pylons. Telstra will also present four 'colour moments' at 10:15pm, 11:00pm, 11:30pm and 11:45pm, when the app will automatically sync smartphones with a colourful light and fireworks show around the harbour. Their screens will light up with the colours and patterns of the show. Telstra also announced it would be live streaming Sydney New Year's Eve celebrations on Telstra's YouTube channel.
