Where's iMessage for Android?

iMessage is Apple's text and media messaging service, bundled into the Messages app on iPhone, iPad, and Mac. And that's where the platform support ends. There's no iMessage for Windows or Android. There's certainly no iMessage for Windows Phone or BlackBerry. Unlike Apple's Mail, Contacts, Calendar, and iWork, there's not even an iMessage in the iCloud. But, on the heels of Facebook buying WhatsApp for $16 billion and BlackBerry entirely missing the BBM boat... should there be?

So, if you're determined to ditch WhatsApp, where should you go? Here are our top 5 favorites!

Are you using BBM Channels or BBM Voice on BBM for iOS?

Instant messaging (IM) is white-hot right now. The latest update to BBM for iOS added features like BBM Voice that allows you to make and receive calls to other BBM users and BBM Channels that lets you create and follow mini blog of sorts for your favorite personalities, products and more. In the iMore Forums, there has been folks creating groups, sharing their PINS and actively using BBM since BBM was released for iOS but when it comes to BBM Channels there hasn't been a whole lot of conversation. BlackBerry recently announced that big brands have been adopting BBM Channels and from my own personal experience, I know that a lot of channels that already exist are openly welcoming iOS and Android users into the space but is anyone on iOS actually using BBM Channels?
