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
What's New in Version 7.1.0
• Bug fixes
Love it, but I have SOME NEW IDEAS😊
I like kik alot...I use it everyday, but there's some things I'd like to add. The chat bubble colors are kinda boring and not very bright...I think it would be cool if you made more bright (neon) chat bubble colors...or it would be cool if you could set your own costom chat bubble colors...like have an option where instead of the colors that are already there, you could slide a little dot to the color you want your bubble colors...and also it would awesome if you could change the color of the bubble who your texting and yours (instead of a color and silver). Another idea is that you could have themes or something when your chatting...instead of a boring white background...or like someone below me said, set pictures as your chatting background to kind of make kik a little more fun. I think you should consider my idea so that kik users can customize and decorate their kik with their own preferances to make kik more fun to chat with😊😊😊
Good but it has a few problems
I got this so i could talk to my friends in other states(NOT AN IMPORTANT DETAIL!)
So anyways the first problem is that the app will notify me that someone has "kik-ed" me about 20(YES I MEAN 20) minutes after the time the person initially texted me. This bothers me because 1) it messes up the point of the app, and 2) it makes responding A LOT HARDER!!!!
My second "complaint" is that it is kind of bland as in its basically just a white background with silver and green speech bubbles. This bothers me because it kind of gets boring and dull after awhile.
My third (and final) "complaint" is that i wish that you could see what your friend's friends are. This (doesn't bother me) but I think it would be a good thing to have so you could talk to that person or actually become friends with that person.
That was all i had to say except that the dev's could have put some more work into it.
I GUESS it is a great app, SORRY IF THIS HURT YOUR FEELINGS BUT THE PROBLEMS DEFIANTLY HURT mine!!!!
This was Luke Thompson approving this message!
I don't really have any issues beside one.
I received a message, naturally I open the app to view this message. I open it, the new message is there notifying me that its new. I click it. The message isn't there anymore. I leave and go back into the app. That certain message is gone. Besides that one problem though, its a great working app. I kind of want some more variated customization options but thats just what I want. Its not what I need. The app is basically all I need to stay connected and all but adding a little something now and then besides worthless games and junk would be nice. Like more chat colors, or changing the color of the receiving chat bubble. That would be cool. Maybe add a custom background option to the convos maybe? Im just saying, it would be pretty dang sweet. But all those wants are besides this review. Its a really useful and reliable app. I would prefer this over any other similar app.
