You are lucky to have smartphone or tablet which runs the popular Android operating system, you can now enjoy free messages, calls and multimedia messages with app called Viber.
Viber is an application which is currently in the list of top free apps in the Android market download charts, and provides an innovative means of communicating for free via various formats. More 40 million Android smartphone users have downloaded Viber, making it one of the most popular communications apps .
How Does Viber Work?
Rather than using cellular connection or phone sim which is traditionally used as the medium through which calls and messages are sent, Viber calls upon a Wi-Fi or 3G connection and utilities this to send and receive data, essentially eliminating the need to use cellular data provided by your phone network. Therefore you must make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network or have a decent 3G connection, and it is also required that you have contacts who also have the app installed in order to communicate with them. Viber is available for Android and iOS, and given their combined market share, most of your contacts should be able to install the app on their handset. Viber will automatically sync with your existing contacts when installed so you will know instantly which of your friends already have Viber.
Who Is Viber For?
If you own an Android smartphone like the Samsung Galaxy, Motorola RAZR or an iOS operated handset like the Apple iPhone 4S, than Viber is likely to be an advantageous for you. However, it is especially useful for those who have a limited number of minutes on their smartphone tariff.
Given that the Viber app is free to download and use (it does not even have ads like many other free apps), it is certainly worth a download in my opinion. Even if you do not use it often it is a great idea to have it installed as a backup.
