Another call for a universal messaging app

I bounce through a folder full of messaging apps. I talk to a few people on Hangouts, a few others on Facebook Messenger, exactly one person on WhatsApp. I Snapchat all those people, too.

And, of course, good ol’ green-bubble text messaging.

Sounds familiar. A good read from David Pierce, although I’m not sold on his choice of apps we should all use — Snapchat or Facebook Messenger. Wire.com sounds good, I wonder if I can get my friends to switch…
