Facebook Messenger Soars to Top Free iPhone App

After launching just Tuesday afternoon, it has become already the number-one free app in the iTunes App Store. ” So far it seems Facebook’s Messenger app is a hit.”

The app has the potential to chip away at the hold of cell carriers. It allows users to send messages and texts through the 750-million-member social network, and it updates in real time, so there’s no need to refresh to see if you’ve received new messages.

The negative reviews in both the App Store and the Android Market are mostly critical of Facebook now having two apps and of the fact that Messenger isn’t an instant message app.
