What’s the best messaging software to install on an iPad?

I want to get my iPad connected up to SMS and Google’s chat system (I use an Android phone, at least for now), and whatever else people are likely to want to use. I’ve always found this horribly confusing. I want to get it right.

I have a Google Voice account, btw — and I use it.

Should I install Google’s chat app on the iPad (it’s now called Hangouts, I wonder what it will be called next year, and what scams it will drag me into).

I want something that’s easy to set up, that I can recommend to friends and most important family members.
