66 Text Messaging Revolutions

Kik Messenger App Kicks Up Instant Innovation

— November 8, 2010 — Unique
. With the preferred method of text messaging as a socializing medium the Kik Messenger App kicks up the way we interact with each other.

The Kik Messenger App is a real-time platform that delivers messages very fast. By applying the BlackBerry Messenger feature, this one also lets you see if your messages have been read by the recipient, but on an iPhone or Android device as well. The Kik Messenger App makes texting feel like you're talking to a person face-to-face, upgrading another way we IM each other.

From in-browser messaging to holographic messaging, here is the texting evolution.
