We use a lot of different messaging apps here, from GChat to Kik to WhatsApp, but one of our most well-used multiplatform apps is PingChat! Today, Waterloo-based Enflick is relaunching the service as Touch, a closed-community messaging and sharing app for iOS, Android and BlackBerry.
The company hopes that because we all have too many contacts in our address books, and reach out to too few of them on a daily basis, Touch will allow people to add their closest friends and family in a beautiful interface to share photos and messages. Like PingChat! you can see delivered/read notifications, start group chats, with video/location sharing coming in a future update.
The app is joining a few other small community-focused apps such as Path in the burgeoning category, but one key advantage is that it is multi-platform capable, including BlackBerry, from day one.
