Windows Phone 7 users are in for a good time as their mobile operating system is to get carrier-independent, free texting service from HeyWire, a free mobile social messaging service.
Windows Phone 7 users can now send messages for free within the United States and to 45 other countries. These users will be exempted of the international messaging charges even when they write messages to their native country from abroad. All this has been made possible by HeyWire, which is the world's one and only free messaging platform.
No matter whether you have a Windows 7-based PC, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or tablet, you can message for free to other HeyWire users and to anyone on any phone provided they are in one of the 45 countries where HeyWire is offering its services.
"We are very excited to provide the only free texting app in the Microsoft Marketplace -- a platform that Gartner predicts will capture the number two smartphone spot by 2015," said HeyWire founder and CEO Meredith Flynn-Ripley. "This was an important service for our company to bring to consumers, which continues HeyWire's mission to facilitate free global communications amongst groups of friends. Now, Windows Phone 7 users can send and receive text messages with friends on multiple devices, quickly and easily."
"This is a win for Windows Phone 7 users as HeyWire is one of the top new apps developed at our recent Microsoft Mobile Acceleration Week," said Brian Hoskins, director, emerging business team, Microsoft Corporation. "The world of mobile technology is evolving as are the demands of continents -- they've grown to expect free texting services that enable communication across countries. We're delighted to have a partner like HeyWire step up and deliver this rich application to our customers."
HeyWire for Windows Mobile can be downloaded from the Windows 7 Marketplace. The app for Windows Phone 7 was developed last year during the Microsoft Mobile Acceleration Week from 7 November to 11 November.
