Just text me, baby! Alternate title: Your messaging apps & you.

Chatheads, Hangouts, Babble/Babel, Whatsapp, Kik, Viber, Skype, Gtalk, good ol' SMS & email, the list goes on and on. We've come a long way from the old t9 flip phone texting days...

And yeah messaging is still in a state of transitional flux! But all this talk of unification (if it ever truly happens in the next year or so) and the sad state of SMS apps these days (really? Handcent is still one of the "best" options?) got me thinking...

What messaging apps do you use on a regular basis?

  • Gmail (long form messaging) - duh
  • Samsung’s Stock SMS app (texts) – Ew, I know. But the others… ugh.
  • FB Messenger – Chatheads turned off now, it was fun for a while, got old quick.
  • Whatsapp – least used for now, but plan on pimping this to friends who have texting-financial issues

All others are site specific, such as tumblr, twitter, & model mayhem, where I use the website for their respective messaging services. I plan on turning on a google chat/hangouts/+ once they get it going.

What about you?

Secondary question… for SMS heavy peeps, what’s your SMS app of choice and why?
