Cross platform messengers are everywhere these days and most modern phones have their own exclusive messengers too. For example, Apple has iMessages and BlackBerry has BBM, but these aren’t we are looking for. Sure, if you just want to chat with your iPhone or BlackBerry buddies, these are pretty good, but what if you want to talk to someone with an Android or a Windows Phone 7 device.
One of the best and most widely used cross-platform messengers out there is the Whatsapp Messenger. This app revolutionized instant messaging, sharing and more. However, Whatsapp isn’t a free app for iOS users, which is why not many have it on their iOS devices. It is free on other platforms. So, in case you’ve been looking for a free alternative for Whatsapp, then we’ve got the right app for you. This messenger is known as Kik.
Kik Messenger for iOS, Android, Windows Phone 7 and Blackberry is the next best thing to mobile calls, is really fast, easy to setup and cross platform. It’ll soon be available for Symbian devices as well. And unlike Whatsapp, this doesn’t charge you for anything, you don’t even need to activate anything. Just add your friends from contacts and get on with it. It’s very similar to Whatsapp, and lets you share pictures, videos and this all happens in real-time.
Some say it’s actually faster than Whatsapp and also shows you when the the person has read the message, rather than just tick marks.
Kik Messenger is the totally free, crazy-fast cross-platform messenger app that connects you to your friends in real-time. Use Kik to chat, share pictures privately, plan outings with groups, and stay connected to the people who matter most to you.
