The Internet has provided us with various means to communicate with our friends, coworkers, and family members. Examples include online forums, emails, and online social networks. But the quickest way perhaps is instant online messaging. Using IM clients, all you have to do is send a message and as long as the client is active on the other end, your message is displayed to the recipient without them having to manually check for it.
For smartphone owners, SMS serves the same function as instant online messages. But sending an SMS costs you whereas the online messages are free. Therefore sending online IM rather than an SMS through your smartphone would be a cheaper and better way to communicate with your friends. Here to let you do exactly that is a smartphone app called Hike Messenger.
Hike Messenger is a free to use smart device application made for iOS devices. The app is sized at nearly 12.5 MB and is compatible with iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad devices that are running version 5.0 or later of iOS.
