Pushme.to is a free alternative to text messaging on the iPhone, allowing users of the app to send and receive messages from others on the service. At first I questioned the necessity of this application, after all, iPhone users already have SMS and various instant messaging and social networking clients (including Facebook and Twitter) on the App Store right?
After using it for a while, however, I came to appreciate the great service pushme.to offers as an alternative to these apps when you’re out of texts – after all, some of the iPhone contracts available on the market aren’t exactly generous when it comes to SMS limits. Another useful feature with this service is that it allows people to send messages to registered users from the Pushme.to website.
It’s also well worth noting that if you’re an iPod Touch user, you’ll be able to message people as long as you’re connected to a wi-fi network which is a great advantage for many!
When you open Pushme.to, you’re presented with a simple interface allowing you to either register an account if you’re a new user, or login to an existing account. If you’re signing up for a new account, just enter your details and check for the confirmation email and you’re all set!
Once you’re logged in, sending a message couldn’t be much simpler; just select the message button and send a message to whoever you want! With the inclusion of push notifications when you get a message, Pushme.to offers a brilliant alternative that you’ll quickly grow to love.
The best news is yet to come: the developers of Pushme.to have decided to include all the features from the paid version of the app in the free (or ‘lite’) version! You’ll be given Facebook profile access, unlimited messages and the ability to send images over messages, so what are you waiting for? After trying it out, I definitely recommend Pushme.to to anybody looking for an SMS alternative for their iPhone or iPod Touch.
