Mac has come up with a new messaging app in the OS X, iMessage that can be used to send unlimited messages to an iPhone, iPad or a Mac. In this app you can send messages from Mac to iPhone.

Apple ID is the same account you use to access Mac App Store, iCloud or iTunes Store. If you are using the Mac for the first time and haven’t setup your Apple ID, you will need to sign in before using the iMessage service.
