Samsung is stepping up its attack on messaging applications like RIM’s BBM or Apple’s iMessage as the tech juggernaut has just released an iOS variant of its own messaging app ChatOn.
ChatOn was launched by Samsung back in August to combat the popular mobile instant messaging services offered on other platforms like BlackBerry Phones and iOS.
ChatOn is a mobile instant messaging app which allows users to send text messages, images and notes to other users on ChatOn.
Notes on ChatOn can be handwritten (via a feature of the App which lets users draw notes) or typed.
ChatOn also has support for one-on-one chats and group chats.
Samsung launched the ChatOn app on the Android marketplace back in October.
Samsung promised then that the app will soon be launched on iOS, BlackBerry, Windows Phones and for personal computers.
Currently, with the launch of the app on the iTunes store, ChatOn is available for Android, iOS and for the company’s own proprietary mobile operating system called Bada OS.
ChatOn can be downloaded from the iTunes store here.
