Ping! iPhone App: Blackberry Ain't Got Nothin' on Apple Anymore
Sorry Research In Motion, but the Blackberry ain't got nothin' on the Apple iPhone anymore. Ping!, a new app available for the iPhone is the equivalent to the much-loved Blackberry Messenger (BBM). Made by the guy behind PushGmail, Ping! is a fast and free SMS like service that notifies the user of incoming messages even when his or her iPhone is inactive.
What is Ping!
Ping! is iphone-to-iphone messaging that also works with the iPod Touch. Ping! works with push notifications so that messages can be delivered ANYWHERE in the world, instantly. The experience is simple and familiar (resembles SMS!) but does not incur additional carrier charges, like text messaging would.
Ping! is like Blackberry Messenger/BBM!
Ping! is similar to BBM in that you can message other iPhones and iPod Touches quickly and easily without text messaging costs. Ping! is intended for your friends and works only when you have your friend's Ping! ID to start messaging.
All you have to do is download the, currently free, application, create a Ping! ID, add your friends, and you're all set for free iPhone-to-iPhone messaging.
So head over to the iPhone App Store and download away before the free promotional offer expires!
