Samsung ChatON arrives as a free web app
If you haven’t heard about Samsung ChatON, you’d better catch up - it’s Samsung’s free messaging system and it’s available on every platform you can think of (except for Windows Phone). Now, it’s become truly universal as it’s arrived in a web form accessible from a desktop, a tablet, any device that can open up a secure connection in a browser.

ChatON works quietly in the background so you can receive messages even when you haven't opened the application window, and that's what makes it good. Feature-wise, ChatON offers not only message exchange including group chats, but also file transfers. You can wave goodbye to costly MMS messages (not that many people use those), and the app also supports movie and music file transfers.

All of your message exchanges are stored on Samsung’s servers and finally you can also link your desktop and mobile applications. Hit the source link below to go to the address for the web application, and... chat on.

If you've got a data plan, why not use WhatsApp Messenger? Works like a charm on our GalaxyS and iPhone4.

I primarily use the "textPlus" app for free texting since all of my devices synce with the same account so that when i get a text message on one device, it shows up on all of the other devices. Its worked great with my droid2 global, samsung galaxy tab, samsung galaxy s, and iPod 4gen all at the same time. Would highly recommend it over any of the other free texting apps. Have also tried "Pinger textfree" but it only works on one device at a time. No use for that when you have as many devices as i do although it does work really well on 1device. Oh,and one other thing i forgot to mention is that you have to have a data plan or be in wifi for "pinger textfree" or "textPlus" to work, but on the bright side, you dont have to pay for texting. Tried this Samsung app as well, but didnt care for it.
