Do you instant message (IM) your fellow iPhone or iPod Touch using friends? If so, you can now do so entirely for free thanks to the Ping app. This is a way to enjoy IM activities with no further costs and no need to worry about logging in and out of a program to receive your messages.
The Ping app offers a great assortment of features that include push notifications when any new IMs are received, the ability to use the app in portrait or horizontal mode, and offline messaging. Those using Ping will receive their own special ID and once this in place they can begin sending IMs to all other friends with Ping IDs as well.
Custom settings allow the app user to determine whether or not they receive an audible or vibration alert for new messages, and any new friends can be linked directly to the device address book with a single click of a button. The app also works much faster than standard messaging services, and even sends IMs internationally as well.
There are a few other iPhone to iPhone IM apps, but Ping offers one of the more easy to use designs with extremely streamlined features.
The app will function with iPod Touch and iPhone devices and works with English, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese and Spanish languages.
If you want to enjoy free and easy IMs with your friends, this is the right app to download today.
