Alternatives A view over the nose

There are alternatives to WhatsApp.

WhatsApp has a large user base, but always falls back negative by vulnerabilities and lack of transparency. We have a number of alternatives found that offer similar features and have the potential to replace WhatsApp.

WhatsApp: Not sure developers react slowly to vulnerabilities

Whatsapp is probably undoubtedly one of the most popular messenger apps on mobile devices – and across platforms. In almost all app stores of mobile operating systems, the application is in the front ranks. Correspondingly high is numbered and the number of messages that go through the server of the service. According to the company 10 billion messages per day are sent.

WhatsApp: widely used, but only moderately popular – almost a necessary evil

The success of the service is probably due to the rather simple handling and simple registration process of the app. To use Whatsapp, the app only needs to be loaded from the respective App Store and will then registered via SMS. The service automatically matches the stored numbers from the own database. Already it is possible to interact with its contacts via WhatsApp. Not by chance has issued just 16 billion US dollars for the Facebook Messenger – an astronomical sum.

So far so good. The problem is not the ease of use, but the lack of security, by the service attracts negative attention. Thus, a vulnerability has been discovered a few days ago in the app, with the accounts of other users can be captured. Fresh burgeoning rumors that Facebook might expressed interest in the service, many users can also think about switching to WhatsApp alternatives that exist basically in abundance. Here is a selection of apps that have similar features and are available for a broad base of platforms.


Skype can be conditionally considered as WhatsApp alternative

Skype will be familiar to most of our readers. The classic of the chat services offers both normal text and video chat. It is also possible documents to send photos, etc.. Corresponding apps are available for both Android, iOS, Windows Phone and Mac and PC.

The message board is free, video chats as well, only one should be careful that you are logged in wireless network. You can also call for a fee worldwide in fixed and mobile networks. Writing SMS messages on feature phones is also possible at low cost. Click here for the fee schedule.

ChatOn runs on all platforms and also trendy in the browser

Samsung has presented almost with its own messaging service ChatOn last year a WhatsApp clone. He has, on the whole over the same feature set of the great idol. ChatOn clients run on smartphones and tablets with the Android platform, iOS, Windows Phone, Blackberry and Samsung Bada. However, the service still offers something more: it is in fact possible to chat via web app.

As tempting as this functionality may sound, there is a problem of the whole thing: data / conversations that were sent via the Web app will not be displayed on the mobile client and vice versa. Since the web app is still in beta status, it can be assumed that this use is Samsung refinishing.


KakaoTalk has a broad user base – in South Korea, which can be changed quickly, however

The service with the delicious name is widespread especially in South Korea and one to own information current total of over 60 million users; only 18 million are outside the peninsula. How many of the featured services also, KakaoTalk Apps provides for a large part of the available mobile platforms – iOS, Android on Windows Phone BlackBerry and Bada is all represented.

The Features of KakaoTalk leaves little to be desired. It can send text messages, photos, videos and even voice messages are sent. The service sends messages over a secure SSL connection.


Hike: freshly started with apps for iOS, Android and Windows Phone – SSL encryption is submitted

With a new player enters Hike the messenger environment The Multi Messenger is since 05 December in Germany at the start. Hike will run as a direct competitor against the top dog WhatsApp and this may in respect of its functionality thoroughly. Hike dominated group chats, as well as the sending of voice, video and picture messaging. What is still missing is a SSL-encryption to be submitted by the end of the year. Hike apps are available for Android, iOS and Windows Phone, Symbian and BlackBerry Client for to follow.


Line features such as KakaoTalk over tens of millions of users, but is mostly used in Japan. In Google’s Play Store service is positively evaluated

With well over 340 million people now the messenger line from the house Naver belongs in this overview. The functionality is similar to the most presented here and has clients in addition to tap the camera on the way and scored to provide images with stickers to send cards and drawing pictures, which in turn can be connected to share with friends.

Line can be exploited via the browser, OS X and PC clients are also apps for Android, iOS, Windows Phone and BlackBerry to download.


Apart from the abovementioned mysms is also an interesting alternative WhatsApp. The Austrian developer of the Messengers offers apps for Android, iOS and Windows Phone as well as an extension for Chrome, but also clients for Windows and Mac. Focus of the service is, as the name suggests, on the dispatch cheaper SMS (8 ct per SMS) messages and free users from mysms.

MySMS is extremely convenient as all conversations sync across all platforms and can of course also continue. Sending photos or other information material, as in the previously presented service is also supported.

Kik Messenger

Also Kik Interactive kik for mac 6.0 will with the fierce competition WhatsApp defy. With 30 million users and apps for almost all platforms such as iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Symbian and BlackBerry service is particularly noted for its speed, which leaves to be desired in WhatsApp known left. Another positive aspect: the registration is no phone number required. Videos, photos and sketches can be divided by so-called maps with others.

Although Facebook WhatsApp has just bought, the chat client of the largest social network in our survey may not be missing. Given the ubiquity of Facebook’s Messenger can be considered as a hot SMS competitor. The app supports both sending messages and group chats and sharing photos.

Some time ago, Facebook has announced that the use of the Messengers Android no longer a Facebook account is required. Instead, you have to authenticate using telephone number and name, as with most other multi messengers. However, Facebook has a bad reputation as well as WhatsApp for some. It is quite possible that both services will be merged in the future.


MessageMe is a chat client for Android and iOS, which began operations in the wake of SXSW 2013. Alone in the 75 days after release of the clients of the service could collect five million users. In addition to group and individual chats, it is possible to ship directly from the application videos, photos and music. Like the recipient of the clip, it can also be bought by the same iTunes (iOS version). In addition, voice messages, notes and even Painted and own location can be shared. Registration is incidentally as WhatsApp on your own phone number – a desktop client such as Google Hangouts or Samsung’s ChatOn currently does not seem to be planning.


Another not new, but interestingly Multi-Messenger The Messenger Viber is understood not only as WhatsApp alternative, but also as a competitor to Skype, because it offers mobile VoIP and video calling chat recently, a desktop client. Viber is no mean size among multi messengers – now put 200 million users on the service. Remarkable is also the range of Apps: Both for iOS, Android and Windows Phone clients are offered, but also for Blackberry, Bada, OS X and Windows are there appropriate software.

The history of gadgets crosses as far back as humankind itself

What renowned inventors Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell and Leonardo da Vinci, among others, had in common was foresight. They comprehended a lifetime spent playing with what others viewed as toys and senseless gadgets would eventually lead to crucial technology. From merely that little group, the groundwork for electricity, communicatings, picture, and flight was set because of their gadgets, which obviously have more value than novelty.
Maybe among the first, most well known gadgets created is the wheel, many millennia ago. Take a ride in your automobile and witness how genuinely radical this type of gadget became and how much we now rely on it for transportation continue reading this. A more recent gadget, the Apple iPhone, seems to be the start stages of yet another gadget-turned-necessity that will reshape communicatings.
“The iPhone may someday be looked upon as the apparatus that began another revolution in computing. Desktop Computer computing was the first revolution. Hand-held computing will someday be regarded as the second revolution, and the iPhone is the merchandise that began it.”
-Richard Thalheimer, useful site
All gadgets are not created identical. Actually most inventions are built on the newest technology. The universe of gadgets is tiered; devices fall into one of four categories: mechanical, electronic, programmable, and program. Mechanical gadgets comprise the wheel, also as later developments like the pulley, the bicycle, the sail boat, the thermometer and the kind. Following the dawn of electricity, gadgets were taken to a brand new amount as inventors began to discover different uses for the recently harnessed energy. The telly, radio and quartz watch are examples of electronic gadgets. After electricity, inventors toyed approximately with electronic info via microprocessor, beginning an age of programmable devices such as computers, and later, MP3 players and the iPhone. Program gadgets comprise iTunes, Microsoft Office and other computer programs that customize our experience with programmable devices.
Richard Thalheimer, the President and founder of online gadget seller, and creator and former CEO of gadget giant The Sharper Image, understands, possibly better than anyone, that there is much more to gadgets than novelty.
“Definitely most individuals appreciate the novelty of a gadget that introduces new convenience to their lifestyle. What they forget is that solving these regular problems is not merely entertainment, but many of these devices become practical necessities. In my own private life, I rely on my iPhone, my garage door opener, my nose hair trimmer, my electric toothbrush, and other gadgets that were once regarded as new gadgets. “
- Richard Thalheimer,
Both his former brainchild and his current venture sell quirky, useful and interesting gadgets of types, from mechanical to programmable and application. He has seen some apparatus, including the Ionic Breeze air purifier, spur astounding and long-term tendencies predicated on a recognition of utility worth, while others collected dust on the ledges after their novelty wore out. Specialty stores like The Sharper Image and Richard Thalheimer’s function a greater goal: distribute new thoughts, and give credit to the Franklins and Edisons of the world.
