Verizon Introduces VCAST Messages SMS Application

Let's face it, Verizon's VCAST apps are not usually ground breaking. Only offering up some core services that are attached to Verizon's music and location services, they are usually overlooked. However, this time, Verizon has gone and released their own texting application, and it's pretty decent. On track to compete with Handcent and Chomp the Verizon VCAST Messenger allows users to send text messages, and the software isn't actually terrible. There is an option for sending texts to recent calls so you can easily notify someone about your status if you just missed their call, as well as location based messaging and a group conversation feature. Currently available for the original Droid, Droid 2, Droid X, LG Ally, Eris, Incredible and Fascinate, it may be a nice way to change things up a bit. QR Code: [Download Link] [Via DroidLife]
