I'm fond of 'Textie.'

I've never used other apps, though, so I can't compare.

It's free but has ads mixed in with the text messages. It costs $2 to turn the ads off, but I never did it. They don't really bother me that much.

I'd vote for Textie. Best texting app I've seen so far.

Also, I'd look into getting something like Trillian and just using AIM or yahoo or something.
