Photo sourced from meisjesindermedia.nl Just recently, during WhatsApp’s outage last month, Telegram’s popularity soared high with nearly 5 million new subscribers. It topped the free app chart in many countries on the iTunes store and beat other well-known messaging apps like WhatsApp and Kik. Its winning points include speed and advanced security measures which has a strong focus on privacy. Telegram even hold a contest open to anyone who can find a way to hack into their system, only in an effort to keep improving the app.

Its interface is easy to use and the design is easy on the eyes as well. Like WhatsApp, it integrates with the user’s phone contact list. Since the news of a Japanese e-commerce company planning to acquire Viber last month, it has been attracting 600,000 new users everyday. CEO of Rakuten Inc Hiroshi Mikitani hopes to reach 2 billion users by the end of the acquisition.
Photo sourced from haverzine.com Like it or not, Facebook has been growing steadily throughout the years in the social network scene. It is still considered one of the top dogs in the business and so it is no wonder that when it launches its own messenger app, it quickly gained attention and usage. This is separate from the actual Facebook app for users who wish to communicate with their Facebook contacts in the most efficient manner. In its last update, a ‘dislike’ button has been added as a sticker which can be downloaded from the Sticker Store. This popular app is also now available on Windows phones.

This collection is often updated and just a week ago, it is now offering cheap calls to cell phone and landline numbers that do not use this particular app. This is an added bonus for existing users who can already do free voice calls to one another.
Photo sourced from geekvulture.com Founded in 2009, Kik was created by a group of University of Waterloo students. It was aimed to be easy and to resemble chats on the computer. This is clearly evident in its interface as well as the use of usernames instead of phone numbers. Like many other similar apps, it also allows exchange of videos and photos to other users. One downside to this is the active ‘spam bots’ that target select users believed to be operating out of somewhere in the United States. Currently, the only way to combat this is to allow the option to ignore new people under ‘Notifications’.
