when I asked it about IMESSAGE ANDROID. I didn't have a good look at the site myself.

But since it's free it might be worth a try.

can't believe noone tried to download it

Guys, really? Nobody tried to actually download that app? It's a scam app, meant to make money for the idiot who build the website. First off, if you have adblockplus, it won't let you see the download page - duh, they want to make money off of your clicks. Second off, you have to fill out a survey. Whenever that happens, whatever is supposed to be given to you after you're done with the survey is just a carrot dangling in front of the donkey (you).

Normally I'd agree with you, but in this case it's a legit (albeit poorly tested) app. Search for it on the Google Play store and you can see for yourself. I downloaded it unto my HTC One and it does in fact do as advertised: I can exchange iMessages with iPhone users. But, it's pretty glitchy (I recently switched from iPhone so I know how it should work) and it doesn't seem to work with group conversations. I wouldn't give it 5 stars but hey, it's better than nothing eh?
