Hike Messenger Application for Android Mobile : Free Download

If you have been using an android mobile, then I am sure you must be familiar with atleast some of the voip or instant messaging or social networking application. You must have used (or atleast heard about) applications like Whatsapp, Skype, Viber or Facebook. Well each of these have a common aim "let people connect with others for free". What if we tell you that their is another android application that has a similar purpose but still it is unique in its own way.

We are talking about "Hike Messenger Application" for android mobiles. It is being seen in the top charts of Google Play market. It is a free application to download, available in Google Play so lot of people have already tried it. It offers Fun, free messaging for life. With hike, messaging has never been simpler.

Hike is a new messenger that lets you send free messages to your friends and family. With hike you can message friends that are on hike and also those who aren't on hike too! You'll never have to use another messaging app again. It sounds similar to whatsapp application (check its comparison with Whatsapp), but first we need to look at all its features (and try the app ourself) before making a comparison.

My Review

I tried this application on my Galaxy and trust me I have started liking this application. The download procedure went pretty smooth and it was ready to use within few seconds (though I didn't like asking me to invite friends at the first time I started using it). Once logged in, I was surprised that many of my friends are already using Hike (it automatically shows list of friends using Hike).

It is just like using SMS messaging application built in your mobile. I found it pretty easy to use application and good thing is its very stable.

Making a group chat was so damn easy and it also shows (by varying colors) which friend are on Hike and which are not. But it does not matter because you can still include them on Group chat.

Hike Free SMS to Non Hike Members

Hike offers free 100 SMS per month (refills every 1st of month) which can be sent to mobile in India. This is a very useful feature and I kinda love this. I tried sending free sms to a friends mobile (who is not using Hike), good thing is these are also listed in friends list so sending message is easy (with the color you know they are not on Hike). Anyways I sent the SMS and it was received within seconds. It worked and it works pretty fast.

Hike included "Sent from Hike .. Download Hike from here .." in the message, but that's okay as long as it is free.
