Samsung's ChatON messenger is now available on iOS
iOS has iMessage which is a pretty good free messaging service if you overlook one fact - it’s iOS-only. And while there are plenty of other options for cross-platform free message exchange, Samsung’s ChatON is one of the more popular ones as it comes from the world’s biggest smartphone maker (hence it lands on more devices), is easy to use and arrives in different OS flavors. Now, it has hit the App Store and it’s free and compatible with devices running on iOS 4.2 and up.

Samsung has promised to bring it on all major platforms, but has interestingly omitted Windows Phone from the picture in its initial plans. ChatON is now available on Android, bada and iOS, and Samsung promises a future BlackBerry OS version.

With ChatON users can have private conversations, group chats and also share photos, videos, voice messages and contacts. All messages are sent for free not counting the data you’re using, and the app itself is free so it wouldn’t hurt trying it, would it?

"iOS has iMessage which is a pretty good free messaging service if you overlook one fact - it’s iOS-only." "ChatON is now available on Android, bada and iOS, and Samsung promises a future BlackBerry OS version." So, how is this "iOS-only"?

why would anyone use a specific manufacturer's app when you can use Whatsapp, or Skype or Google Chat that works on all platforms.

I would love to try this, but getting my friends and family to download yet another group chat app is going to be tough.
