    It'd be way nicer if these free messaging apps supported texting people without the app, like Google Voice does. Until then it's just a nuisance to keep switching between different apps to text different people.

    You need to have service for that. This app allows you to msg even tho you have no service. You just have to be connected to WiFi

    My family uses that a lot after our relative from Europe showed us it. I hope Google Hangouts catches on once it gets SMS integration from Voice. It's actually pretty awesome to use, and it would be nice to have just one app for all types of messaging/video chatting (Besides SMS to SMS texts, unless they built that in too)
