[App Review] Ping!

Time for another app review! My uncle came back from Macau today and told me to get this app called Ping! I went to the app store and downloaded the lite version for free. So technically any iPhone can get this app!

What it does is amazing. It lets you send a message to any other Ping! user.

Now you may be thinking, what's so special about that? I can do that with ebuddy! (or some other IM app)

Well this app is special.

> Firstly, there's no signing in/signing out hassle. No passwords to remember.
> Secondly, the messages you receive are pushed and so appear as if they were SMS's! Meaning Ping does not have to be open for you to receive messages!

Think about what would happen if everyone with an iPhone had Ping! Your SMS costs would go down like crazy!

It's also very simple to use. All you have to do is think of a Ping! ID...and you're ready to go! After that, simply send your message to another person's Ping! ID and that's it!

> Very slick way to send messages to other iphone users
> Simple to set up and use, hassle free

> May drain battery with push notifications enabled
> Requires 3G or wifi
> Some users will get stuck at "connecting" when they first open their app...
> Only effective if everyone uses it!! (or at least if your text buddy gets it)

So spread the word my fellow iPhoner's! Post in the comments your Ping! IDs and we can all connect!

My Ping! ID is gman98
