Ping! pro version: free in the iTunes store / free iPhone-iPhone messaging

Free, and Canadian to boot.

This gets you free iPhone to iPhone text messaging.

The pro version, I believe, has no advertising.

Direct link to iTunes app store:

May be Canadian, but definitely not the best iPhone-to-iPhone app. I thought it was decent but if you're looking for something much closer to BBM, WhatsAPP is the one you want.

It's pretty much exactly like BBM. You can see when the other person is typing. No waiting for messages to be delivered like in Ping. And with the latest update, you can see when a message was sent. You can see when a message was viewed. You don't have to create a weird username. And it integrates with your address book.

Ping feels too much like "text messaging for those without a texting plan" whereas WhatsApp feels exactly like BBM.

I don't know what BBM messaging is like, but I did grab WhatsApp when it was free as well.

I like Ping! though for what it is. And the price is right today.

for the WhatApp do you need a data plan for it to send pictures?
When is it free?

I've got an unlimited texting plan, too. But I prefer WhatsApp. Try it. You'll like it.

Thats great, if you don't have friends in the US or anywhere else. So far whatsapp has saved me a lot in international texting charges.
