    When it comes to paying for an app, I have no problem with it. It is the same as paying someone to perform a job for you. But, what I can't stand are ads. I will pay even more, just to not have ads in an app.

    Coming from a BlackBerry (Z10, Q10 and Z30), I didn't have to worry about ads in BBM. Albeit, they started with 'Stickers'. Seriously, that's what they want to offer, when there are so many other things they could be working on? Anyway, I digress...

    All that to say and ask, what other IM apps are available on multiple OS' besides BBM & WhatsApp? I'm this ---- close to deleting BBM. Well, unless they offer a paid version soon; and I can't see that happening...

    Yes, I hate ads that much.

    IM+ has a regular and pro version that doesn't have ads. The regular has an in app purchase to remove ads. It's not a standalone messaging app like WhatsApp? or BBM, but it can connect with lots of IM services like Google talk, Facebook messenger, yahoo messenger, and a bunch of others. There's always Skype chat but I don't know if that has ads or not.

    Unfortunately they all seem to stink as far as ads go. I finally deleted BBM because it was constantly sending me invites for crap.

    Been using Google Hangouts for cross-platform IMing. I'm also on the verge of deleting BBM, if I want stickers I have Line and FB messenger for that.

    Google Hangouts is my IM of choice. I can begin the chat on my windows pc, continue it on my iP6, keep going when I switch over to my MacBook Air, switch to my HTC One M8 and end the convo on my iPad.

    I know that others don't seem to like GH much, but I like it because it's free and I can pretty much use it one whatever device I typing on at that moment.

    BBM is coming out with a paid version shortly. And I believe it will get rid of the adds. Not a 100% sure what it will all do.

    Paying for an app that no one uses sucks.
