Tech Talk Thursday #8

Welcome to this weeks edition of Triple T. As promised last week, we aren’t reviewing a game but two programs that I like to use with TupeloGeek


Ping! is my favorite iPhone-to-iPhone app because you don’t have to share your phone number. You only have to share your user name that is associated with your phone. When I first got this app you couldn’t change your user name but now you can delete it and choose a different one.

This app is pretty straight forward and is easy to figure out. It’s a great app for 99 cents. If you’d like to send me a message with this app send it to jholley and I will reply. Be sure to let me know you saw this post.

Whatsapp Messenger

The one things I don’t like about this app is the fact that you must share your phone number with the other party. You can send a message for free to others in your contacts but they must also have an iPhone too.

Another cool thing about this app is that you can have a status. You can set it and then have it change to another one after a certain period of time. You can set it to Sleep and then have it change back to Available in 8 hours. This is the app that TupeloGeek and I use the most. This app is available for free too.

Both Apps

The plus for both of these apps is that they both feature Push Notification. If you are looking for an iPhone-to-iPhone texting app then either of these will be great.

Thanks for stopping today and be sure to join me next week for more Triple T.
