    Cheers, mate.

    If friends of mine download this Ping business, then I suppose it could come in handy as an alternative to texting.

    I'm having the same issues getting pings from iPhone users, taking hours. Running a Froyo based ROM here.

    I played with this last night with my girl. she has an iphone and I have a HTC Inc. It works great except I wasn't getting any notifications. I need to open the app to see the messages. she sent a video too and it worked.

    Hi Enfick,

    Thanks for getting back to me.

    One more question. Are widgets planned?

    Also I don't know if its a bug but when I send when I receive a message and Pingchat is already active it doesn't show the ping in the list. Only in the notification bar. So to see it I have to bring it down, click on it which reloads PingChat. Not the end of the world but nice to be fixed.

    NO WAY!? So I can chat with my old BBM buddies using CrossTalk??!?!?! They don't have to have it installed in order for this to work??? How much longer until it will be released?? Will it be a free or paid app?

    Thanks!!!!

    Here's a link

    You sure about that? You asked 4 questions, two of them are answered on the link you posted (which also happens to be the first link Google comes up with in my reply).

    From the link you posted:

    Still nothing when ping ing iPhone users.

    My gf has an iPhone, she gets my ping instantly, but takes up to 8 hours for me to receive her reply..

    Shame cause I really love when this app works, sadly it's rather pointless when texting a mate during a match of 90 minute football and we can't reply for 8 hours.

    Yeah it's odd with the iPhone 4 vs BB/Android Ping'ers.

    Anyways, would be nice if one day Ping got adjustable fonts, then it'd become my main text chat with other users on my contacts.

    I have a Droid X and I just downloaded ping chat last night. It won't let me link some of my contacts to the contacts in my phone in order to keep these people in my ping chat buddy list.

    When I think I linked them and I tried to message them it told me "The conctact(s) you want to send message to contain(s) invalid ID(s). Message is not sent." So in my IM window I have to keep their messages open in order to message them and they don't recognize these users as ping chat users if I search for them.

    Also, when I tried linking them I ended up getting 60+ linked contacts in their contact profiles but it never truly linked because I couldn't message them through my buddy list.

    What is going on and how do I fix this?

    I have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling and deleting the contacts and readding them.

    Enflick: Is there a reason why PingChat is so CPU intensive? I haven't received a single message in the past day, but System Panel is reporting that in the past 8hrs PingChat has accounted for 5.0% of my total CPU usage at 24m6s of CPU time (by comparison, the next highest usage over the same period was system, which used 2.7%).

    Since the system is push-based, this seems odd. Even adding up all the system-related processes and Gmail (which is also push-based) together I only get 3.7% CPU usage, and that would account for alot more than just Gmail itself (from which I have gotten quite a number of emails over the past 8 hours).

    I think he was asking if there is a Paid version so he doesn't have to deal with the ads.
