Apple’s Messages app on iPhone, iPad, and iPod devices is a texting lover’s dream come true. Messaging allow users to send text, photo, or video messages to keep in touch with all of their contacts and friends. Even better, all devices are now equipped with the iMessage service. Unlike the regular Messages app, iMessage lets texters send messages over the Wi-Fi connection on any iOS device or Mac computer. Therefore, it is completely free of charge and unlimited. In other words, no more worrying about cutting conversations short to stay under pesky limits.
If users have more than one Apple gadget, the conversation can continue seamlessly across all of them, without missing a beat. Messages can even be sent to more than one person, with the selection of multiple addresses. If desired, texters can give their fingers a break and let Siri write the texts for them. After it is sent, users can be reassured that it was delivered by the receipts saying the other participant has read the message. Using iMessage is a breeze, just turn it on in the settings app and use the Apple ID with password to sign on.
Apple’s Messages app supports SMS and MMS on iPhone, and iMessage on iPhone, iPad, iPad mini and iPod touch. You can send iMessages using Messages in OS X (Mountain Lion).
