Pinger Phone for iPhone
Pinger has announced its latest app for the iPhone and iPod touch, Pinger Phone. Combining a variety of tasks into a single menu, Pinger allows users to text, IM, mail or call someone, as well as send a message to contacts through Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. An automatic horizontal-keyboard function is used when messaging through AIM, Yahoo, MSN or Google Talk, and users can choose to appear online all the time by receiving alerts of new IM conversations through SMS.
Pinger Phone is a free download from the App Store. Likewise, no fees are charged to send a message over Pinger's data network; normal charges still apply, however, for any recipients.
