Oddly, Whats App suffers from the same shortcoming as Kik — a lack of voice calling — though it does have voice messages.It’s gained great popularity as a chat app that functionally replaces SMS, while also being able to send group messages, pictures and videos, as well as GPS coordinates.The app has chat and video calls that function like the others, though its voice chat is particularly different.
Still, it does have the ability to message anyone, anywhere, as long as both users have Kik.
One special feature it has is a built-in web browser, allowing more seamless sharing of web content with friends.
Now it claims to have 120 million users, though reports a base of 130 million registered users for the app.
Whatever the case, the app is doing well for itself and likely to continue doing so.
Still others attempt to offer a novel form of communication.
Here, we’ll take a look at the world’s most popular over-the-top communication apps meant to cover for dull stock apps.

There are plenty of options out there for people who want to get past the limitations or shortcomings of the stock communication apps.
Though it’s free for the first year, it goes up to 99 cents per year after that.
The app is available for Android smartphones, i OS, Black Berry, Nokia (S40 and Symbian), and Windows Phone.
Like Line, it has a shake feature for easily connecting with new contacts.
