    Default KIK or Zello apps?

    Hi guys
    I'm not saying these app are deal breakers in any way but has anyone heard from Zello (PTT) or KIK messenger? i think KIK is as good as whatsapp

    Kik can be sideloaded on the Playbook so give it a twirl for BB10. You can get it from the Android Sideloading Forums for the Playbook.

    I cant speak for KIK but for WhatsApp it is announced it will come sometime in March and march isn't that far off so hopefully we'll get it soon and you can connect with your international friends once again with ease

    if you go to their website Kik Messenger | Fast, Simple, Personal Smartphone Messaging it states the following on the bottom of their page

    "*IMPORTANT NOTE: RIM has not approved or endorsed Kik Messenger for installation on BlackBerry devices. RIM, BlackBerry, and BlackBerry design elements are trademarks of Research in Motion Ltd."

    so I'm assuming so

    Hey, thought I would post this response I received from Kik customer support after I inquired about Kik availability on BB10. I had already side loaded the Android version, which worked ok, however you had to have the app active to receive messages. Unfortunately, this plus other factors like horrible music syncing with my Macbook Air led me to return my Z10. Thought this might be helpful for you guys to see though.

    I really doubt it will make it BB10, unless they suddenly say sorry to each other.

    I would like Kik too. Whatsapp is fine if you want to talk to other phones, but my kids are all on iPod touches, and whatsapp doesn't support* the touch, so they are all on kik.


    *they did, then stopped, and now do again but it is kind of broken how it works because you need to use a cel number that can get text messages to sign up.
