Viber Messenger: It's Weird If You Don't Have It Already Review
Viber is a messenger app which allows you to chat and call other Viber members as well as landlines and mobile numbers worldwide. Exchange gifs and cute stickers that are unique for Viber as well.
You can download Viber Messenger for iOS, Android, Windows Desktop, Windows Mobile, and Blackberry.
One of the main features that Viber has besides regular chats and calls is Business Chats. It's when a company sends you notifications through it instead of regular SMS. They still send you a phone message, and you can block any company in Viber whenever you want. But the thing is that it's safer to receive messages from the companies via Viber because there you can hear only from officially registered and verified business not some scam pretending to be a company it's not.
Viber always looks nice. It has nice for the eyes purple main theme and a lot of backgrounds available for your chats. Even the fonts are original and just great, not a lot of apps care about that kind of things. The Viber stickers are also cute and unique, too bad not all of them are free.
One of the most unique Viber’s features is that you can fully use it on your desktop when with WhatsApp, for example, you can’t make calls through the desktop or a web version. Well, you can’t call regular numbers via WA as well. That’s what makes Viber special too. Just choose a pack and start calling landline or mobile numbers all over the world with Viber Out. The connection isn’t great in Viber both in internet calls or direct calls. Sometimes you don't get a notification of a missed call when the person totally called you. Let's just hope they'll work on that.
The app's description states that no one else can read your messages other than you and the person you send the message to but how can we know that it's true? And if it's about crimes, wouldn't you want FBI to be able to read the texts?
Cross-platform use 3/5
This Viber Messenger review’s focused on the iOS version of the app. Well, it works stably in general, but there are glitches sometimes. Often that happens when Viber gets updated, it can remove your chats. Another problem is that you don't receive calls or any notification about them when someone's definitely called you and you can see it in their logs.
There are different packages available here. If it’s a Viber credit pack (tarts from $0.99 up to $9.99) where you call to any number in the world according to Viber’s tariffs, go to Viber’s website for more info. But you can buy a subscription plan and save money with calls to the USA.
The Bottom Line
You should definitely download Viber Messenger. Because it's a regular messenger that everybody has or should have at least. It's a strong competitor to WhatsApp, but you can't call mobile numbers with that one. And Viber works more stable than Skype which was original messenger/regular phones caller client. Viber doesn't perform perfectly as well, but it's in the middle between two worlds.
Viber is a must-have app for your phone whether you're an iOS or Android user because most people have it and use it already.
