Editors' Review

ChatON is the chat app designed by Samsung. The iPhone app allows you to communicate with Samsung owners who prefer to use ChatON as their messaging app. It combines some social and news features along with chatting to try and provide a complete community experience in the app.

Pros

Easy setup: The app asks for permission to access the phone's contact list and then quickly find anyone who is currently registered with a ChatON account. It found several users quickly and easily. Registering the phone was also a painless process, with a basic four digit confirmation code being texted to the phone.

Live Partner: Live Partner makes ChatON different from just another messaging app. The Live Partner feature allows you to add news streams from a series of vetted, interesting sources, so you can get updates on topics that interest you like sports or business news.

Cons

My page: This seems like a superfluous social networking element added to the chat app. Everyone with both a Samsung or Apple device has ample access to apps for the established social networking profiles. The addition of yet another seems to clutter up an app that could just be used for effective chatting.

Narrow adoption: Chat and social apps need to be used by many people in order to be truly useful. Only if you have a large circle of friends who use Samsung apps and are current users of ChatON, can it be a great app.

Bottom Line

ChatON is a slightly cluttered app that combines chatting, social networking, and news. If you know a lot of people who currently use Samsung accounts or have the app, then it is a useful chat program. Otherwise, some more mainstream and widely adopted alternatives might be more useful.
