Background: My wife and I used to be on Android phones. We used Google Talk to text with family members who didn't have text plans but had Android phones. We have now switched to iPhones and iPads, but still want to be able to interact with the family members with Android phones. What is the best app for doing so? We installed Chat for Google Talk by ilegendsoft and it works really well, but it doesn't cause a notification to pop up on Android phones, so while we get the messages they send, they wouldn't necessarily know they got ours (unless they just happen to check). So what is the best alternative? I don't really care if it is a free or paid app as long as it works!
