Ping

I’ve been using Ping for the iPhone since its initial release date, and I’ve been extremely happy with it.  

Ping is a text-messaging app. There is no monthly charges and no roaming charges to Ping someone, but they must also have a Ping account. This is great for your family and friends and saves a bundle.

However, I do have a big beef with Ping for iPad. I can’t use the same user name as I had for the iPhone. Consequently, I don’t use it. It’s too confusing for my friends and family to have to figure out which user name to use.

When asked, they said they were “working on solving this.” I hope so. Until they get this resolved, Ping will only be used on my iPhone.

Otherwise, Ping is a great app.
