If you could message people offline but on the mobile app it would be really good for the health of the population. With how common smartphones are it's really weird to me there isn't an official messenger app or even a viewer for iphones to use.

The lack of sl support for ApeHole Muck myPhones has been commented on before, nobody is willing to pay to make an app for them, so bad luck, besides SL on a phone has never been very good.

If you really think so, put in a feature request. JIRA

To be taken seriously, you need to present a clear picture of what you want, why you want it, how it will work, and how people will use it and why. If it makes sense to the Lindens, they may build an app.

With the JIRA filed, you can send people to it. They can click WATCH (not Vote) to give wait to the request. Those that have better stories on how it could be used can add those. Adding 'me too' posts just annoys the Lindens, so discourage those.

Bright Canopy is a retail app (monthly cost) for SL. It allows SL to be run on devices that don't normally support SL.

In Third-Party Viewers you will find Lumiya, an Android viewer, and Radegast a non-graphical viewer, and Group Tools for sending IM's. None tie into the SMS systems. But, they work from within your phone.

Radegast is Windows and Linux only and has an extremely limited graphics interface and doesn't render mesh at all. Lumiya is a limited visual Android app that you pay for once but it is still somewhat graphics intensive. Radegast is based on the LL viewer, which is open source. Android is also open for app makers.

Apple, however, is not an open system like the others which is part of the reason why you rarely get viruses on their devices. There was, at one point, an Apple based app called Pocket Metaverse but I don't think it's still available.
