How to Save Money on Texting-Plus a $25 Itunes Giveaway!!

With everything else costing so much money these days, the last thing you want to pay for is an expensive cell phone bill.  Those texting charges can get ridiculous. There is a better way to save money on your texting! There is a fresh company that’s produced an app that can give everyone text messaging for free, even if they don’t have a phone! That means that kids with iPods, students with iPads, or people with iPhones connected to 3G or wi-fi can EASILY text all they want, and will never have to pay any outrageous overage fees or monthly unlimited fees. No phone plans needed!!  The app is called TextNow, and it’s been developed by some very creative and incredibly young college students just out of the University of Waterloo, now called Enflick, Inc.They’ll soon even be adding voice support, allowing any family to turn their iPod or iPad into a free phone!

I think this is a really great way to save money! As long as you have wifi (which I have at home!! ☺) then you can get all your texting needs for FREE! No more high phone bills!  And once they add voice support, it would be even more worth it to fork out the money on an Ipod or Ipad! I don't have one yet but if this gets perfected you can bet I will be buying one! $50 a month for unlimited text talk and web is alright, but if I could pay a few hundred and be done, then that would be worth it!

I also love that TextNow is free! So many other apps cost money, even if it's just 99 cents.  Still that could have gone to something else! TextNow is here to save you money, so that means no cost from the start! They want to help you save so much, that they are even offering you a chance to win a $25 iTunes gift card! Go download their app for free and then spend the money on the other ones that charge you! There are lots of great apps (Not to mention amazing music!!) to check out! So if you want to win, here is how to enter!!:
