First off, I thought the little guy was interesting and caught my eye. With thousands of apps out there anything that can reach out and reel people in is great.You can use this service for texting and keeping in touch with your other friends who use TextFreek on iPhone, iPod, Android and BlackBerry for free. This was a nice easy to read system to send not only messages but also photos out to friends. They have a cute little widget that you can put on your homepage and can see when new messages come in.
