    Everyone:

    This is not meant to flame anyone, it is just my opinion

    A texting app has to be the stupidest idea ever, and here is why...

    1. You can only send texts in the app, and they go through some carriers website and your email is left for the return address
    2. To receive a text you most go to your mobilemail.app and thats retarded
    3. Is that person really going to want to talk to you? If i got a text from a friend saying

    "OMFG!!!!!

    Please Register or Log in to view images

    IM TEXTING YOU FROM MY IPOD TOUCH TEXT ME BACK"

    I would not want to text that person back.

    4. At least talk to them on AIM with your ipod or just CALL THEM. Texting is slow as hell and if you call them you can get the point accross
    5. If you want to text, JUST GET A CELL PHONE or GET TEXTING. Be nice to your parents and they will get you a cell phone.
    6. EDIT: Another reason... You need wifi to text so you have to be at your home or near a hotspot. Good Luck with that

    I'm wondering the same thing. He posts something about it being the "stupidest idea" ever yet does a genius thing like creating this thread.

    Ironic. Just a bit.

    Yes, I am making a thread about this.

    Kids think it is so cool that they can text from their ipod touch's and it's annoying to see all the posts.

    So this is one post to end them all

    I doubt your one thread will cease all conversation about texting from the iPod touch

    Nice try. =(

    It's not stupid to want to text from your touch. For me I like the keyboard better than my cell phone. Finding a hotspot nowadays isn't that hard. Also, I can receive texts to my phone. I just don't want to pay for the texting plan. It's handy if you only need it once in a while, but if you're texting all day then yes, I would understand it would be stupid.
