Read: How to Overcome WhatsApp Addiction
After the success of WhatsApp there are many App developed and still developing, attempting to be more user-friendly, innovative, intuitive, easy and with more attractive Smileys and Emoticons. But the bottom line is that WhatsApp has outplayed long before.
However, the other few competitive Smartphone Messengers, which I would recommend trying.
So, let’s check it out why we should try these messaging Apps even if we got WhatsApp installed and running on our devices.
Hike Messenger for Smartphones
Based on my messaging experience, I believe that Hike is the best after WhatsApp because it offers very interesting stickers, smileys or emoticons; whatever you say. This App is recommended for you, especially if you are an Indian because it has Bollywood smileys, Indian politician smileys and more. I always prefer chatting on Hike due to the fact that I like changing chat’s background, with different users while I am chatting, sometimes it also does a good job when you want to irritate someone. For example, if you are chatting with your friends, you can simply choose a background that has to do something with friendship, once you will change, it will also reflect on your friend’s chat interface. Similarly, there are other backgrounds preinstalled like Romantic, Sports and others.
My recommendation: Play with stickers, smileys and use free offline messaging.
The other one is Viber Messaging App
I use Viber and I have never removed it since the day I had installed it. The best part of Viber is that you can install it on your PC or Laptop and sent messages and stickers to Smartphone users. It offers great multi-device experience. They’ve sticker market where you can buy new stickers which are very attractive. If you are using Viber from PC and Viber from Smartphone, you will experience that the collection of stickers is different. Which is also interesting for surprising your friends with new stickers by pinging them from the computer. However, if they end up too curious, there’s an option to purchase any stickers you want.
My recommendation: Use it for cross device messaging, play with stickers and enjoy free voice call from one smartphone to another.
KakaoTalk, I’d suggest you to keep reading. This one is also a very useful messaging app which is available for Android, iPhone and Blackberry (Blackberry-RIM is not supported). It’s a free App which has features such as bookmark and organize your friends in quite unique ways, not so common among Android Messengers. Finding friends with names makes really easy to connect and you can also download, export or email your friends list so that your contacts are safe and shared.
The interface is very simple and luckily quite similar to WhatsApp here the advantage of making free calls adds up much temptation. The IM and overall looks and feel are a bit more attractive; ther
e are eye popping colors, better profiles picture and nice fonts.
My recommendation: This is free App and available for all Smartphone Platforms
