When some people think of bots, they may think of the fake user accounts littering their social media accounts -- yet the Kik Bot Shop shows that there are some bots out there that are meant to make lives not only easier, but better. Users will be able to access a range of helpful bots through this unique shop -- ones that can help them with weather alerts, web tasks and even telling funny jokes.

The Kik Bot Shop is also open to developers so that a number of needs and desires are met. In a blog post, the company writes, "We wanted to find a way to get more out of chat without adding to the clutter or detracting from the simplicity of the experience in Kik."
