Free text messaging has become the norm right now, thanks to the advent of services like WhatsApp and Kik Messenger. And it looks like we’ve got one more to add to the table. Yahoo! has just announced the launch of Hub – an app that lets users send messages to other Hub users via a data connection. This basically translates to free texting as long as your phone has a data connection. What separates Hub from other apps is that it is device agnostic – which means you can even send messages to other people for free even if they don’t have the Hub app, however this applies only in certain countries.
Hub has the usual set of features found in apps of this caliber – group messaging, group management, and push notifications. At the moment, the app is only available for Android 2.1 devices and above, and only to users with a US SIM card and a text plan. No word on when the app will be available for the rest of the world, but for those of you in the US can check it out on the Android Market for free now.
