Messaging apps are used for a vast array of reason, some for simple text communication while others for video conferencing for business on the go. Not all have the same functions, which can make it difficult to choose which is the best for a user’s particular use case. Most devices nowadays come with some form of data messaging as well as cellular texting options though this may not be implemented in the best manner or the most intuitively, which is why many third parties have created their own answer to combining all functions or excelling in one.
SMS Text Messaging
MightyText gives you desktop notifications for new texts and calls with the ability to quickly reply from your computer. There is also a really cool feature that shows you your current battery life on your phone as well as low battery alerts no matter where your phone is.
Viber has really well implemented voice tech. It has comparable quality to Skype and you can even tranfer calls from your phone to your desktop seamlessly.
WhatsApp Messenger is a FREE messaging app available for Android and other smartphones. WhatsApp uses your phone’s Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, calls, photos, videos, documents, and Voice Messages.
Communications are encrypted between client and Google servers but not from sending client to receiving client. This means that there is still a possibility for someone other than the receiver to read your message if they have access to internal Google servers. But it allows also lightweight chat history search, spam protection and other features.
