A Bromley mum has won £1,000 by using a new smartphone messaging app.

The app rewards users with a weekly cash draw for using its free service to send texts, photos, video and other messages.

Accountant Liz Wilson, 43, was a first prize winner and husband Andrew, 43, has won one of hundreds of fivers also given away each week.

But Mrs Wilson, of Park Hill Road, said the couple’s six-month-old baby boy Jamie is the real winner.

“He needs a high chair and other baby things so we’re going to spend it on him. We might also put some towards a bigger car,” she said.

“I’m a real chatterbox. I love social media and Tengi is now definitely our favourite app to talk to family and friends. My win has got us all talking.”

The app, called Tengi, sends text, emoticons, stickers, photos, videos and audio messages for free over the internet.

Founder Neil Laycock said: “Chatting rewards users with tickets for the weekly free prize draws. So the more friends you have and the more you chat on Tengi, the better your chances of winning.”

The app is free to download at Apple’s App store at and at Google Play for Android at
