Blackberry Messenger (BBM), the best reason for making itself as a first choice of many people to choice among the huge market of cell phones. Apple clicks this idea too and they had introduced the iMessanger in iOS 5. The idea and feature are same as the BBM and same propriety for the iOS and OS-X. If you have a group of friends which are the user of iPhone, iPad, or iPod it’s great then otherwise its use is very much limited. Now we are going to discuss some messengers which can be used by Android, Windows Phone, symbian and BB- toting friends so that they can communicate freely.
Best Alternatives for iMessage for Apple iPhone,iPad,iPod users
Whatsapp is the free and internet based text messaging app which can be used same like the Skype. According to the data collected by some analyst, more than $17 billion in lost revenue for the wireless set carriers..
Whatsapp has many strong features like having a unlimited text messaging, your location, share some photos, videos, audios clips within the friends community..
Whatsapp is available officially for many of the devices like iOS, Android, Windows Phone, BB and that for Symbian also. For the user of iOS $0.99 is to be paid for this app, but for the other user it is free of cost for 1st year and for the next years user have to pay $0.99 per year.
Note for iOS user, keep an eye on this app because free of cost offer comes in often holidays.
Viber is another best messenger app for the smartphone having almost the same feature as of the whatsapp.It also offer one-on-one messages, group chat, send / receive unlimited photos, find location and free call from viber to viber. It works on almost every iOS, android, and windows phone. But for the BB and some Symbian phones only limited messaging is allowed.
Another app with the best voice quality. It is highly recommended because of its outstanding voice quality. Samsung after realizing the potential of internet messaging apps they have introduced this app. It is unique due to of its some other features like the same the ability to send and receive hand-drawn messages, animations, contact info, calendar activities and easily rank people so whom you interact mostly and even the best of it to write on other friends profile by using “Buddies Say”. The feature which makes it unique is that it is easily compatible with almost every browser and supports by all the desktops and cellphones.
It is of usual practice of having the features of one on one chat, send receive pictures, videos, audio clips and find location. There is something extra likewise it stores all the conversation in its special “trunk” for easy access.
Despite of many features, it has much more far away from the Whatsapp and Viber in terms of registration and active users,
On the above stated texting apps, there comes some points where someone wants not a smartphone or aren’t signed up for services.
This isn’t the case with Facebook. It’s extraordinarily rare for me to meet a person who doesn’t have a Facebook account these days. Combine Facebook’s 1 billion plus registered users with powerful, native apps on iOS, Android, Windows Phone and a desktop / mobile website, and you get the most popular messaging platform in the world.
This problem is not for the Facebook user. Where more than 1 billion people are have account these days and almost for every phone like iOS, Android, Windows Phone, desktop and even for mobile has this app.
Facebook has its app for iOS, Android, BB and for that for windows so that one can easily send the messages, share pictures, videos with one or group of friend.
In new updates of this app, one can easily login through your mobile number just like the same Viber and whatsapp.
If this messenger is not available on your device one can easily send or receive through the simple facebook app.
KIK is another member of popular free texting apps that can be operated by the Windows Phone, Symbian, BB and that of OS. It has the same features like one to one texts, group chats, with sharing of pictures videos and with special feature “KIK cards”. It offers some easy and leaping ways so that one can easily share things from youtube and bing.
Unlike other services, it requires you to sign up the traditional way, forcing you to use a username instead of a phone number. This enhances user privacy in exchange for a slightly more tedious initial registration and friend-finding process.
Like the other apps it also required to sign in. but has some uniqueness from other that it required to sign in from the user name while other can be signed in by the phone numbers. this also gives more privacy in the friends finding.
