Samsung’s free ChatOn Android app is now available in the Android Market however users are already complaining they are unable to get verification codes.
The new app, which supports both one-on-one and group chatting, is Samsung’s rival to RIM’s Blackberry Messenger and Apple’s iMessage. Samsung promises the app will eventually be compatible with all mobile phones and computers that are using a web client and is currently available in 120 countries and comes in 62 different languages.
However new users are already reporting bugs in the service with the star rating for ChatOn already taking a hammering clocking-up a paltry score of 2.5/5 stars over 275 ratings.
ChatOn currently operates with Android, Bada and a number of other Samsung feature mobiles, albeit as a scaled-down version, and, according to industry rumours, plans are afoot to develop an app for Windows Phone 7.
