Editors' Review

+

A good-looking, easy-to-use messaging app, Viber lets you text, make calls, and share media and voice messages using your phone number as an ID without any charge, so long as the other person uses the app as well. In terms of performance and stability, this app has come a long way since its earlier versions, rating up there with WhatsApp Messenger as one of the best apps of its kind right now.

Pros

Beautifully straightforward UI: Viber's clean, polished, colorful UI with many fancy emoticons provides a fun environment for conversations with friends and family.

Excellent sound quality: Even when used outdoors, the sound quality proves excellent, for both direct calls and voice recordings.

Support for tablets: Though this app is designed for smartphones, you can also use it on a tablet, provided that you first get your user ID through your smartphone. Most other similar apps are not available on tablets.

Cons

No video call feature: It's awkward to have to switch to Skype or other apps for video calling.

Annoying stickers: Viber's free stickers are nothing special, and though the premium ones are more appealing, many of them look childish or gaudy. What's more, the premium stickers are pricey and can take up several MBs, so if you're on a data plan you'll probably hate them.

Bottom Line

Viber proves to be a handy app for conversing with friends or family and may help you save money on your phone bill. While we cannot say we suffered from many disconnects, you may encounter them occasionally, especially over 3G when making long-distance calls. If that won't put you off, then try this app right now.
