From the time WhatsApp Messenger was introduced onto the app scene, the world seems to have become smaller and everyone, more accessible. We all relished in the thought that we had finally found our Messiah of messaging apps. With its potentially unlimited free calls and text capabilities, which only required a simple offering of being connected to the internet. Well I’ll say that, it was surely delivering on that thought. Don’t you agree?
What Makes It So Great
WhatsApp Messenger is a 1 year free messaging service that in terms of capabilities, far exceeds traditional SMS services. It lets you posting audio/video files, pictures and links to its easy share feature, which can be accessed by other iOS apps as well. It lets its user launch video/audio calls, send voice notes and even place locations on each text sent from anywhere in the world as long as the user is connected to Wi-Fi or a 4G, 3G, 2G or EDGE data plan. The app also gives its users the ability to have group chats of up to 50 people. Can you imagine how pricey, it would be if you had to send texts using regular SMS to 50 people repeatedly? Not very appealing is it? The interfaces can be customized with different wallpapers which you can either download from the many wallpaper packages available or upload from the many images on your phone. Each chat can have its own unique wallpaper, so you are free to express yourself. All of these features are available during you’ll be your first free year, and when that expires, all you have to do is play a measly $0.99 yearly subscription to resume the service.

Viber the Alternative to WhatsApp
WhatsApp Messenger has become a major player in the messaging app game, and while it does stand at the top, it is not without flaws. Many have expressed disappointment with the apps limited and dull emoticon section and surprisingly, that is a major deal breaker for some. So if you are someone who prefers a vivid and lively set of emoticons, then check out Viber. Viber offers the same features as WhatsApp, improved emoticon design and styles, and a feature which allows you to call non-Viber users using Viber credit. Sure, you will have to purchase the credit, but that still hasn’t stopped the app from gaining a huge following. Viber is available for any iOS device as well as PC. Try it out.
