Apple It's a busy day for Apple today. Not only has the company launched its iCloud service for everyone, they also released Mac OS X 10.7.2. To top it all off, as expected, the company launched iOS 5.0 today, bringing a host of much-needed and long-awaited new features to iOS.

In the US we totally pay through the nose for text messages. I pay USD 25 a month for an unlimited text plan for the family. Using iMessage I can go down to a basic plan which costs only USD 10 so this one app would be a huge savings.

(Needless to say, this only applies if your family members all have an iPhone which is probably the whole reason for this app, to lock in the whole family into iThings.)

And this $10/month basic plan already includes unlimited data ? Now THAT is incredibly cheap by my French standards ;) (basic plans are things like 30 min talk that you can sometimes convert to 100 sms here) Indeed, it would make iMessage (or competing solutions such as Skype, WLM... for that matter) an interesting option for US citizens.
