How cool huh? KIK also comes with optimized developer tools that lets developers share their web content on it in a way that boosts their developed content.
One of the most interesting fact about it is that it was founded in 2009 by a group of students from Waterloo University. Their main aim was to shift the audience from PC to smartphones which they did did very well.
KIK being founded in 2009 has reached over 250m within 7 years of its total market span. It is one of the leading competitors in today’s rapidly growing chat messengers.

This constantly improving messenger is a major competitor with some industry giants such as Whatsapp with a very sleek and clean and user-friendly. It’s registration process might not be little tedious but the rest of the application is just awesome to in its functionality.
We do not yet know how the app owners plans to monetize the service that they are providing. It would be pretty harsh on their part to charge the its users as we are used to using this chat client for so long now. One probable thing would be mobile ads, but it can surely change the user experience that this app currently provides.
Features of KIK Messenger

5. Using this mobile based application you can actually search with you mobile contacts as well but only if the other user has this visibility turned on on app settings as well.
