    I have searched, but to no avail, to find a 'cross platform' App that I can use to send and receive messages from my new (and quite uperb !) iPad to Android devices. Can anyone point me in the right direction please ? As an example : 'WhatsApp'

    Many thanks

    If you're using iOS5 on the iPad then there's the iMessage app that comes with the operating system. That will send either iMessages or SMS messages from the iPad to other mobile platforms.

    I thought that iMessage on the iPad could only send to other iMessage programs. SMS would require a cell signal and cost $$$. Im referring to wifi only here.

    I have not been able to send regular SMS messages from my iPad. Is there something I am missing?

    Sent from my Verizon Black 64GB iPad 2 With IOS 5.01 Update From NYC using iPF
