Sending Color Text Messages on iMessage
There are quite a few color text message apps available on the App Store. The most popular is an app called Color Texting for iMessage and costs 99 cents. With the “Color Texting for iMessage” app, you are able to make graphical changes to iMessage texts. The app changes iMessage so that you can add color text and change appearances such as bolding, underlining, and italicizing texts. Other customizations include adding colored bubbles and 35 different fonts. We tested the app with both an iPhone 4s and both the iPad 1 and 2 running iOS 5.0.1, and everything worked as described. However, we have noticed again low reviews by many reviewers. It seems there are many glitches affecting Apple iPad users. When using this app, you have to select the features you want, type your message, and press send. This can be time consuming and tedious at times. If you are looking to send color text messages this is one of the better apps out there, but in general we found all the apps to be buggy and/or inefficient.
