Messages Beta for OSX bring iOS iMessage to the Mac – AVAILABLE NOW!

With the announcement of Apple’s latest desktop operating system, OS X “Mountain Lion” hitting the web this morning, one of the more exciting features for business on the move is that Apple’s iOS communications platform, iMessage, is coming to Apple’s Mac platform as, simply, Messages. The app is currently in beta, but works great for sending text, pictures and even video quickly and easily to your friends no matter where they are. iMessage already worked to ease communication between iPad and iPhone users—with the addition of a Mac App, Messages is sure to be a hit. You don’t have to wait for this summer’s Mountain Lion release, however: you can download the Messages beta today on Apple’s site.
