Samsung’s cross platform messaging app ChatOn was just launched Friday morning and is available now in the Android Market. It was back in August when we first told you about ChatOn and that it is similar to RIM’s Blackberry BBM, Apple’s iMessage, and Goggle talk. Made to replace your cellphone’s factory SMS/MMS service, ChatOn is currently available on Android, Bada and Samsung feature phones with the promise of extending support to iOS and Blackberry in the near future.
The service only works on mobile devices right now but Samsung plans to offer a Web-based service allowing for users to chat via their PC’s as well. ChatOn users can talk one-to-one or in groups, share photos, videos, voice messages and contact information. Feature phones are limited to sending text, images, calendar appointments and contact sharing. Smartphone owners get an upgraded version allowing to comment on each others profiles, send multimedia messages and monitor their own “Interaction Rank” based on how active they are on the ChatOn network.
This new Sammy app only works on Android 2.2 or 2.3. Follow the links below for your free download and be sure to let us know what you think!
