TextPlus Brings Free Text Messaging to Android
TextPlus, an ad-supported application which allows for free text messaging, is now available for free on the Android Market. Initially an App Store offering (the application’s official website has not yet been updated to show Android support), textPlus now allows Android users to send free text messages to anyone from within the application. Users would not be charged for messages nor would they be required to have a message bundle. Recipients of textPlus messages do notÂ need to have the application, nor an account, and can reply to a short code (60611) attached to the textPlus user address.
Additional benefits of textPlus are free international messaging and the ability to text to multiple people simultaneously, similar to a chat. Android users can sign up for a free account directly from within the application to create a textPlus address.

Solutions have come and gone, but reallyit’s the standalone GPS guys who in the end have come to my rescue. The standalone guys with any brains have released apps that combine the best of both worlds, like the team at Navigon. It’s not cheap, in fact these are some of the most expensive apps in the Market.
