Has anyone tried the text/SMS app for the iPad?

Do you have to have a separate address in order to use it or can you use your regular mobile number. i supposed anyone wanting to text you would have to have your new address. Any suggestions please?

Any experience with Text Free unlimited or Text Now unlimited? They both require you to have a new text address and not use your mobile number. That is as I understand it. Is anyone better than the other or is there still a better app? The friend that I text does not have email or data, just a text plan.
