    Default iMessage For Windows

    Does anyone know if this is real? They state that "As Seen On" all these sites including iMore but I didn't see it anywhere. And to download the app is not easy.

    imessageforwindows (dot) com

    Any reviews?

    No there is no system to work on Windows...

    iMessage is a messaging system that Apple uses with the iOS Messages app or the Messages Mac.

    There is no PC version.

    I would NOT trust it. There is no mention of iMessages being available for any other devices other than Apple devices running iOS 5 or later or OS X Mountain Lion or later. You can view its Wiki page .

    If the both of you have smartphones and a data plan with unlimited texting then there is no real monetary benefit to using iMessage, in my personal opinion. You will still be able to text each other or send photos to each other.

    My suggestion for your wife's next birthday or just for next Sunday: Donate an iPhone.

    We do have this but texting from an iphone all the time gets cumbersome. I know I know I can download AIM or Y! messenger and load it on windows and the phones and do it that way. It's just convenient way of messaging without having to load extra programs. Also my kids have iPod Touches and she can message them via iMessage from a computer as well.

    she has an iPhone. But like I said above I love being able to iMessage my friends and family from my Mac. I don't get why Apple can't make a windows version. They make windows versions for iTunes.

    If Apple opens up the iMessage API as they originally planned, you will see a Windows client.

    The problem, as I understand it, is limiting SPAM with an open API.

    No money in it. I love the function of the iPhone 5, but is just a cheaper way for making it. it's an iPod variant.
