Chat on your terms with Kik!
• No phone numbers, just usernames.

More than 200 million people use Kik to connect with friends, no matter where they meet them – at school, in a social app, or in an online game. Just ask: “What’s your Kik?”
What's New in Version 8.3.0
• Now you can delete messages from your chats. That means you can plan that surprise party without having to worry about Snoopy Sally peeking at your phone. But be careful, because it doesn't delete the messages from your friend's phone
• Better support for Apple's fun, new emojis
Crashes every time I load it, time to go back to messaging.
App Needs iCloud Backup ASAP
KIK introduces another useless feature the ability to delete messages from chat. If you want to delete messages from chat all you have to do is log out of your account and then log back in and your entire conversation history will be clear
Obviously KIK really does not care about the user experience if there solution is simply to update the app with more chat bubble colours. This app has become an embarrassment in terms of quality as compared to whatsapp and Viber which offer a better user experience. If you really care about the user experience read what I suggested below and implement these changes
Sometimes we send a message that we did not mean to send so give us an option to retract and delete a message that we did not mean to send. Also give us a timed messaging feature so that we can set a message that we have sent to a contact to disappear after they have read it
This app has made many improvements since the release of iOS 8 however I feel that in order for a messaging app to truly be reliable it needs to have an iCloud backup option. There are times when we need to reset our phone or log out of KIK and I have noticed that after doing so all my conversation history has been deleted. Conversations such as meaningful personal or important business that need to be referenced and it's unfortunate that it can't be backed up. Please update KIK to support the iCloud backup feature similar to what is offered by WhatsApp
Sleek and efficient.
