Failure to communicate: Apple cuts off Beeper Mini messaging app for Android 3

A new messaging app, Beeper Mini, which had allowed users to run the iMessage app on Android phones, appears to be no longer functioning. The cause? Apple disabled it, according to various reports and sources, including comments on Reddit.

But shouldn’t messaging apps function like strong, open-minded family units, letting you take part in discussions, finding out when the next family party is, or even giving you important info on what to buy a strange great uncle you haven’t seen for years for his 89th birthday? And no matter what type of person you are (an Apple iPhone family member or friend or Android family member or friend), shouldn’t you be able to communicate with each other, via these messaging apps? That was the hope, at least, when the Beeper Mini app launched earlier this week, which provided a secure way to run the iMessage app on Android phones, provided that you were willing to pay a subscription fee. (There was a 7-day free trial and then a $1.99/month subscription fee).
