Sprint open to a Windows Phone Messaging Plus app


Sprint recently released an iPhone and Android Messaging Plus app, and the good folks over at TechRadar asked the developers of the app when they will be delivering a Windows Phone version.

Messaging Plus  lets customers use a single application to connect with family and friends on any wireless carrier in the United States, Canada and Mexico via text, instant messaging, group messaging, and video chat, as well as sharing of photos and videos.

The app is developed by Jibe Mobile, and its CEO Amir Sarhangi said they were interested in Windows Phone, but continued:

"Timing-wise, I can’t comment on that. But absolutely. What we’re doing is all about multi-module communication. Whether Windows Phone, whether it’s the web. For us, this is kind of the beginning. With Windows, we’re definitely looking at that side."

In some ways the app competes with over the top services like Microsoft’s Skype and WhatsApp. Sprint will start preloading Messaging Plus on all its Android devices starting next month. Of course those apps are cross-platform, and we suggest Sprint’s Messaging Plus app would see better adoption if it served all users, instead of only the most popular platforms.
