TextNow, a free phone and messaging service that operates over Wi-Fi and existing phone connections, has now opened up its own virtual carrier on top of Sprint's 3G and 4G networks. The IP-based SMS and voice service is offering Android smartphones compatible with the service, with the devices primarily working over Wi-Fi before switching to Sprint's cellular network if Wi-Fi is out of reach.
Enflick, developers of the cross-platform PingChat! IM app and TextNow, has now launched an app simply dubbed Touch. It can be downloaded on its own, or existing PingChat! users can upgrade to it and retain their existing contacts. The app is available for iOS, Android, and BlackBerry devices.
