Samsung releases ChatON messaging app for Windows Phone users
We've heard it was coming and now Samsung have gone ahead and released their ChatON (web.samsungchaton.com) app for their Windows Phone users. We last reported on this back in April so it's nice to see the app is finally live.
ChatON is a proprietary messaging service made by Samsung but works across various devices including Bada, Android, iOS, BlackBerry and now Windows Phone.
Truth be told, it's a fairly decent messaging service that offers some unique features like
- Profile page
- Animated messages (via drawing)
- Location info
- Multimedia sharing (and storage)
- Group chat
- Interaction Rank
Proprietary messaging services are always a tough sell especially since you need to convince your network to change over. Having said that, Samsung has done an admirable job with their service though we're hesitant it will catch on. Either way, it's good to see the app now on Windows Phone for Samsung users.
Pick up ChatON in the Samsung Zone now in the Marketplace. Thanks, Corepc, for the tip

Don't see the point at all with this. What's wrong with WhatsApp, Kik Messenger just to name a few?
Cuz this app was design mainly for Bada phone users to connect with the rest of the world.
Is it US only?
I think it's high time Microsoft address this.
