iMessage for iPhone is a great tool for sending unlimited messages to your iOS-enabled friends without incurring SMS charges. The messaging protocol provides all the basics – text, media and emoji messaging (provided you enable the emoji keyboard in Settings). However if you’re artistically inclined, young, or simply enjoy loud colours and voice messaging you might like something like Cubie Messenger to brighten up your everyday conversations.
The app, which must be installed on both party’s devices, supports the sending of more than just free text messages and smilies, though they’re included too. Cubie Messenger’s main selling point has to be the ability to send drawings in 8 colours, along with a remix tool which lets you edit and return friends’ messages to continue the fun. There are also a lot of exclusively designed stickers, which you can “stamp” into your drawings.
As well as text and pictures, video can be sent and so can voice messages which are easy to record from within the app. Drawings can be shared with everyone using the service, or simply browse what others have come up with. Cubie supports small one-on-one chats up to group chats with 100 people. Cubie users can connect their Facebook accounts to unlock even more colours.
