What are the non-voice options for communicating with iphone users to and from an android phone? Strengths and limitations of said options?
I don't have a smart phone but am thinking of finally taking the plunge. At least half of my family and friends are iphone users, and have been extolling the virtues of apple messaging. Watching them use it, especially involving multiple people at once, I see the attraction. However I don't want go the iWhatever route as I don't like the lock-in, but if by using a non-apple device I'm exiled from their conversations I may not have much of a choice.
So how about it, are there usable gates in the walled garden?
