In recent times, Android developers appear to have taken a fresh look at a new section of apps i.e. messaging apps. Right now there are lots of messaging apps being developed and people are using them for free messaging using their data allowances included in their mobile plans. WhatsApp is the leading messaging app which is available for all operating systems and it is even more popular than BBM. Previously, the best messaging app was BBM but right now it’s WhatsApp.
However, there is one feature which is missing in WhatsApp i.e. it doesn’t allow users to send messages to mobile numbers who don’t have this app installed. If you don’t want to miss this feature then you must try out another free messaging app that is available on multiple platforms. I’m talking about the Hike messenger app here. This is in the list of top 10 best messaging app that is available on cross platforms. It is even available for Nokia mobile phones i.e. Symbian running mobile phones.
You can download and install Hike messenger on Nokia, iPhone or android smartphone for free. The app is very simple to use and its user interface looks impressive.
