I saw this yesterday from Fierce Wireless  http://www.fiercewireless.com/story/sprint-goes-ott-messaging-plus-app-jibe/2013-10-14

 being talked about so I decided to give it a spin. I have to say it works pretty good, including doing video calls on 3G. It is for IOS and Android, so give it a spin, and yes you can do regular sms/mms thru the app to for those others who do not have it installed.

I installed it yesterday but didn't see the point plus all the white is just blinding.  I understand giving the Iphone users the blinding white they are given but other users like black backgrounds as it is much easier to read especially at night.  Besides the cosmetic issues I didn't see the point of the app and will just use handcent since I like the pop up messaging and then use google hangouts blinding white background for the rare video call I do since everyone already has that app.

True, but not everyone trust Google in using most of there services and for a good reason to. As for it being blinding white, I can handle it.

They sure chose a piss-poor name for it. Trying to locate it in the Play Store or Google Search it turns up hundreds of results.

Yeah, no kidding. I'm not sure if it's giving me results based on my, ah, web history, but,

Searching just "Messaging Plus" pulls up more. It's ridiculous.

Oh, so it's not just Google saying I need a little more gay in my life? Google seems like the company to do something like that, honestly.

It's probably cause of the tags on the apps. But who knows, maybe google is giving you a hint. Maybe google wants to wine and dine you or something!

What if mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, grams, gramps, nana, papa, etc., do not have your holy chosen phone. Could an an OS agnostic app bridge that gap?

 

Hmm...

 

AJ

An OS agnostic app, already built in to all Android phones, capable of text chat as well as video calls?

 

Google Hangouts. It's even hinted that the next version will include SMS support, which could provide an OS-agnostic iMessage and Facetime like experience.

Yes but IOS is using a proprietary standard of there own making and as always will not share. The way Google is going these days , they aren't earning a lot of trust on the privacy front. This app ask for nothing, is supported by Sprint with the standard it is using and being IOS and Android usable.

I wish apple would have stuck to their word and released FaceTime for all platforms. I heard they got hit with some patent lawsuit, which forced them to change how FaceTime works, which caused them to drop those plans. I wish they would reconsider. FaceTime/iMessage on all platforms would actually be good for apple. I do think apple would benefit from becoming more open. I do not believe the iPod would have been as popular if they had not released iTunes for windows.

It only asks for all of your phone info, control, and even your precise GPS location. Not much at all...

    • I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around. Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
    • You also snagged a shot of the new oDAS in there, too.    I also spotted one while on LIRR above Atlantic Ave. They’re starting to really get rolled out now.
    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
