100 million people love Kik, the smartphone messenger with a built-in browser. And since your Kik username - not your phone number - is your Kik identity, you’re in complete control of who you talk to on Kik.
Here’s why you’ll love Kik:
TALK: Kik is more than a messenger. It's like a real conversation, where you know when your messages are delivered and read, and when the other person is typing back. This makes your conversations come to life.
BROWSE: With our new URL bar, we’ve built a browser right into Kik! Now you can explore anything on the mobile web, without ever leaving the app. And with Kik-optimized mobile web pages, you can do more with your friends on Kik, like play games, and create and share fun content.
SHARE: Found something awesome that you want to share with your friends? It’s as easy as tapping the “Share” button, and it all happens right inside Kik Messenger.
Here’s what our users have to say:
"Great app! Faster than texting or any other app like this!" – Audrey
"So easy to use and amazing too" – Angel
"Best ever I use it every day!!!!!!" - William

love it! few suggestions though!
Kik is one of my favorite apps, allowing me to chat with people I meet on instagram with the simple exchange of usernames!
It would be cool if there was a way to allow yourself to see the chat bubble color of who err your talking with!
like, in a group chat, take person A who has there bubble color set to pink and person B who has theirs set to red, and have it so that I can see the colors they chose!!!
it would be really colorful and fun!
an option to turn it off could be possible as well
another suggestion is a log-out button
maybe I just can't find it hahaha but one would be useful
lastly, a way to turn of the banner notifications would be helpful, without leaving the convo
totally a small thing because I can just ask the other people who are chatting to switch to private chat but, an option like turning off banners would be useful. this is considering the people I talk to live in different timezones and talk while I'm sleeping
that is all! love the app! 5 stars and I hope you read this and consider what I wrote!
Great..but a few bugs.
I have used KIK for a long, long time. I use it everyday actually! But I do notice some bugs that get really annoying.
1) It loses its transitions! When I go to another persons profile to see their picture, it gets really choppy afterwards. The transitions from one conversation to the next, just kind of flash. It gets really irritating when you're used to the smooth transitions. To get rid of the choppiness, you have to go to the multitasking screen and cancel it out. Then you have to go back in and wait for it to connect all over again. So yes, very agitating.
2) The profile pictures don't load. When someone changes their profile picture, it doesn't change instantly. For example, one of my friends would be talking about how cool their new profile picture looks, and on my point of view it hasn't changed!
3) Sometimes the websites don't work. When I try to send a vine or something like that, it doesn't load properly.
There are a few other bugs that come up from time to time, but those are the major ones. This is also coming from an iPhone 5s user, if that does any good.
Just Some Requests.?
Kik is a pretty good app. I use it everyday for main communications with friends. However., I have some suggestions., I guess., for it to be better. This isn't so much how it works., maybe a few concerns., but for appearance to make Kik more fun.
Firstly., the lag for names and pictures to change. It takes a great while. Sometimes I'd have to close Kik out completely and open it again for the pictures to change and that gets frustrating.
Another thing., which is appearance wise. The circular bubbles by a persons name isn't very pleasing. Other Kik users have the block shape and really it shows the picture a lot better than the bubble which blocks some of the picture out.
The text colors are actually quite boring now. I haven't had anything that particularly stood out to me and it'd be really cool if we could customize our own colors. With the gradient wheel. Instead of the few basic colors that are given.
It's not the biggest concerns out there., but it'd be really cool if these were addressed to make Kik more appealing to certain people. c:
