I received an invitation to view and use MessageMe the other day. As this was another messaging app (and I wondered how extraordinary can this one be?), I put it on the back burner for a few days. Today, I installed MessageMe, and was quite pleased and surprised by all the features this very unique app has to offer. (Moral of the story: Don't put new apps on the back burner!)

As you know, if you and friends use iPhone or iDevices to communicate, there will be no charge for texts as they become iMessages through the iOS system. However, iPhone to a smartphone will incur text charges whether or not you have a flat rate monthly fee. But here's something...what if you could ditch your text plan, and use MessageMe instead? It's loaded with so many cool features, and can be used worldwide at no charge, and contains no nuisance ads. Without further ado, let's take a peek at the goodies included with this iPhone media messaging app:

★ Unlimited chat for FREE. Uses WiFi, 3G, EDGE or LTE. No annoying ads ever!
★ No carrier or network charges. No international SMS costs. Chat for FREE all over the world!
★ Adding contacts is easy. Use Facebook or a secret PIN like BBM.
★ Group chat feature keeps all your friends in touch!
★ Share photos from Facebook, Instagram or your camera. Share your own videos as well!
★ Post music & YouTube videos directly into messages.
★ Share your location. Let friends & family know where you are!
★ Push-to-talk recording & walkie talkie feature.
★ Draw & doodle! Then add one of hundreds of stickers & emojis available to express yourself with!
★ All-in-one sharing to Facebook and Twitter

MessageMe is delightfully simple to use. Just create an account, and invite friends and family (regardless of their smartphone) to get the app so you can communicate with lots of fun options, and not just plain text. Tap the compose button and select a user from your contacts. You can start typing your message as you regularly would, but there's more creative ways of communicating, so read on!

Tap the "+" button to access the other nifty features such as adding a photo from Google Images, your photo library or your camera. Want to scribble a special note on your pic? Go right ahead. If you want to make your very own sketch or hand-written note, tap the pencil icon. There's a ton of colors from which to choose as well as eraser and pencil point sizes. How about adding a YouTube video, making a new video or choosing one from your library? Just tap to add! Add your location if you'd like. Something I particularly like to do is make a voice recording because it saves the aggravation of typing! So, throughout this day, my friends have been enjoying my voice (I hope), rather than my typo ridden messages.

Lastly tap to add Music clips from iTunes. Listen to the clip, and purchase it if you like it. If you want to read all the details of how to use this app, although I promise it's too easy to need instructions, you can tap the Get Help button under Settings. So much creativity in one messaging app is certainly something to shout out about. Why not start making your messages an expression of your personality?
COOL CONCLUSION: MessageMe provides a bevy of fun and creative ways to express yourself via messaging in a conveniently simple package!
