    I am trying to find out if these new apps (games) that are sent through iMessage use data? My sons are playing a lot of games with their friends using Battleship, Poker, Pool. I just can't find anything on the internet to tell me if these go against my shared data pool.

    I would say yes since iMessages use data just to send normal iMessages.

    If he's playing against a friend, as in peer to peer, then yes. It is using data unless they're playing against each other while connected to Wi-Fi.

    That is what I thought but just couldn't find anything to confirm it. I know he will get tired of it soon but while he is still playing I need to watch my data. Thanks,

    It will use data like sending an iMessage does. How much is dependent on the app being used.
