Purple is a unique new smartphone messenger app with a difference, in that it isn't designed merely to let you chat with your friends and contacts, but to interact with journalists and people in the news industry whose work you follow.

The Purple app helps creators to set a price at which subscribers can access their text channel. What's more, it works in conjunction with Facebook Messenger, so it's easy to set up and utilize for new users.

This messenger app is targeted squarely in the direction of journalists who have significant personal followings on Twitter and other social media, but could also be useful among creators from different industries who like the idea of setting up a payment-based channel to help people access their content.
