    Pull it up on the AppStore, yes but it's $9.00 bucks
    I use text now free if you can handle the advertisement scroll on tho bottom.
    You get use to it imo

    IM+ is another great multimessenger. The pro version may be a little expensive for $9.99, but the free version has almost the same features though no chat history. Anyone, the app does have push notifies, for up to 7 days.

    But i have been told, that IMO is a great free messenger. YMMV
