ChatON is a cross-platform instant messaging service developed by Samsung
Staying in touch with our contacts, that's it, keeping wired is one of our current priorities. In addition, if the communication services that come up to fulfill that need are free and work properly, they become an essential tool in our daily routine. The success of cross-platform push-notifications instant messaging service is an evidence. ChatON is Samsung Electronics try in this regard.
It supports lots of platforms: iOS, Bada, iOS, BB, Samsung featured phones... Besides text messages, users can share photos, videos, audio, location, contacts and even calendar entries for both, individuals and chat groups. You can even create your own unique animated message by drawing. Edit your profile, change your avatar and add a status to let you know your contacts what you're doing or thinking.
One of its added-value features is "My Page" from where you can see your interaction rank, what your buddies say and edit your profile. It's like a "Wall". The rest of features are quite similar to other apps of this kind.
The app is set in a good-looking layout, friendly and intuitive UI. It could be in the top of the push-notifications instant messaging services. However, the successful of this apps depends on the audience preferences. It's cruel but that's how it works. If you and your close friends are using this app, you will probably stay, if some use this but most of them use another one... it would be a nonsense going against the tide.

Don't use it. No one I know uses it. Please allow us to uninstall it.
Why not make this like imessage for Samsung users.... You guys have a large customer base it would make this app useful
Very very very very bad
Why create an app that no one uses, can't be removed and uses ridiculous permissions.
I don't use it, no one I know uses it. I think it's a waist of space and memory and still think the permissions is outrageous. Please for the love of it stop updating this useless app no one wants.
