    I’m a big fan of cross-platform messaging, but it’s getting out of hand. There are so many options for sending messages and sharing files, I just don’t feel compelled to download another app that NONE of my friends have…not when I already have options (Google Talk, Yahoo Messenger, email, etc.)

    No links in the article? Not even to the manufacturer’s site? Or the Market? A little more work would go a long way to keeping readers happy(ier).

    Adam, I put up a link for you.

    Thanks Mike. Great follow-up! It was easy enough to find, but I think the article is much more valuable this way and make it more likely for people to share.
    Keep up the good work, guys.
