Kik is the latest rising star of mobile messaging apps. The service reached 100 million users lately according to a review by CNet. This means three times the number of members within one year. A key feature mentioned in the article is that users do not have to give away their phone numbers.
The homepage is nearly clear, beside the logo there are just three menu tabs and the hint that the app is available to all major mobile platforms. The idea to not ask for phone numbers sounds unusual and indeed the service has its vision, which is described at the about page. The company views the development of the mobile world as the next step in communications. Despite of delivering a comfortable app enabling to chat, send and share photos and videos and many other things, the vision of the company is still going further with Kik described as just the beginning of a new era.
