    Great post! Most of these websites seem to follow a certain formula, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing since it seems to work so well. The link to Kik Messenger actually points to Ambience App though, thought you might like to know ;)

    Thanks for the great references, but I was a little disappointed to see 2 of them noted as “free” – that actually were not.
    ‘Taska’ – is $4.99!! (iPhone or iPad) and ‘Ego’ is $1.99 / $2.99 (fyi).
