Hike messenger, probably the best replacement for WhatsApp and also other chatting apps. It has got many unique features which makes it completely different and the favorite social application for many of the users.
Today it has got around 35 million users and still growing very strongly. Its officially available for the mobile operating systems like android, iOS, windows phone, nokia Symbian and blackberry.

Hike Messenger Features:

Offline Messages:
One of the best feature of hike and the most useful feature for any users who user hike through mobile internet packs.
We need not stay online all the time waiting for your friend’s reply. The most faced problem using smart phones is that you won’t be connected to your friends if you do not have internet connectivity.
Here in hike you can leave a SMS to your friend if you find he is offline, not only that you can also use this offline messages to connect with your other friends who are not using HIKE.

Last Seen:
Now say good bye to stalkers, you can avoid your last seen and online status from the users whom you would like to stay away. In the recent updates of WhatsApp, we have features like hide last seen, but it will show your “online” status if you are using the application. This is completely different from that feature, you can share your last seen, online status only with your contacts if you add them as favorites.

Hike provides a lot of stickers because texting or smileys are just too mainstream. Using stickers you can just convey your emotion without typing anything. We have a lot of varieties of stickers like friendship, love, pets, Bollywood etc..
