Pushme.to is an iPhone/iPod touch application, now free for a limited time.
In the words of E.Shimalsky, Treebune's CEO:
We're not fighting the IM war, we're creating a service that is as easy as SMS and can be used by virtually anyone with a browser. "SMS in the cloud, and for free" is waht we call it ;) No registration is required for sending you instant messages from the web. Plus, we're a straightforward iPhone-to-iPhone messenger too.
Our future? We will be rolling out a mobile version of the site (Android, Nokia and others) so that your friends can start a free instant conversation with you from any smartphone. The center of this instant messaging will still be the iPhone, and your browser.
