VesNL: #whatsapp Agree, since I've started using Whatsapp there is nothing else I've been using that has such a strong adoption with users. Even my aunt is using it to talk to me. Jul 11, 12

Erik: #whatsapp This app is better than #kik_messenger on paper, but yet I haven't found the need to switch completely. I think Kik needs to take note of this apps functionality and robustness and at least match it to stay ahead in the game. I'm surprised WhatsApp hasn't received as much buzz. Jan 7, 11

    shadowtech: I don't know, I've seen WhatsApp prominently featured in several sections of the iTunes store. I was using it before I even heard of kik. Anyway, it's pretty good, but I still text more than anything else. There are still people out there without data, apparently. Jan 8, 11
