Imagine being able to seamlessly message friends from any of your devices. That will be a reality with the launch of iMessage for iOS 5.
It's like BlackBerry Messenger for iOS. iMessage will let users communicate easily between iPhones, iPads and iPod touches. This service will include text messages, photos, videos, contacts and group messaging, with intriguing new features like the ability to show delivery receipts, read receipts (shown in-line) and indicate when another person is typing. In many ways, the service is similar to iChat.
iMessage will be supported via 3G and Wi-Fi, and conversations will be synced across all of your iOS devices, so you can pick up a conversation started on your iPhone on your iPad. The service will also support iOS 5â€²s new push notification system, whereby texts will no longer interrupt your games or other running apps; they'll appear unobtrusively at the top of the screen. You can swipe from the top for more details and tap the notification to go to the app.
