Over the past week, several family members have marveled at my phone and then asked me whatï¿½s my BBM. Then I explain to them that BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) only works on BlackBerry phones, not Android. PingChat! is similar to BBM but also works cross-platform, so I can interact with all of my family members whether they have an EVO, iPhone, or Storm.
PingChat! delivers multiple communication methods to its users. Send texts, photos, video, voice notes, and have group conversations within the app. Itï¿½s an all-in-one device that can be tied to your phone number for easy communication, or a Ping! ID if youï¿½re someone with multiple phones or planning on switching to a new device.
Sending messages or media is simple enough in PingChat! Integrating the ability to send photos, video, and audio is very convenient, as is the group chat feature. I wish Iï¿½d discovered the app sooner because these features would have been useful had I been able to chat with family members rather than relay SMS messages and phone calls the entire time.
