Launched last year for Samsung loyalists, the message application, ChatOn, was such a big hit that they have decided to release it on Android and Bada smartphones and the App Store this month.

“It connects everyone in a single easy chatting service as it supports multiple platforms, including Android, iPhone OS, BlackBerry OS etc,” says Ranjit Yadav, country head, mobile and IT, Samsung Electronics.

Two in one

With ChatOn, users can interact with anyone, irrespective of the device used.

The app works across both feature phone platforms and the smartphone.

So while the former phone users can easily share text pictures, calendar, contacts and emotions, the latter has advanced features that will make the interaction more interesting.

“It allows users to see how often they communicate with their buddies using the Interaction Rank feature.

It also offers ‘Animation message’ which allows users to create their own content by scribbling text, adding audio and choosing background pictures,” says Yadav.

What’s more, group chats are possible, while a web client will allow easy sharing of content and conversations between mobiles and PCs.

What’s the deal?

The free app is already available in more than 120 countries, supporting up to 62 different languages.

Downloads have reached up to 500,000 among Android owners, causing analysts to suggest that Apple’s iMessage, which supports only iOS devices, might be affected.

Samsung is also planning to introduce a BlackBerry and Windows

Phone edition

ChatOn is available at the App Store and Google Android store for free.
