Editors' Review

WeChat is a social app that gathers all of your sharing and communication tools in one place, including video calls, text messages, and images. To fully experience the app, you'll need to get your friends to use it too, but it's a great way to connect with your friends across all platforms.

To get started with WeChat, you'll need to create a user ID and password, which requires you to enter your phone number and a four-digit code that is sent to you via text message. The app will need access to your Address Book, which is par for the course with this type of chat/text app. The interface has a very simple design and no ads to accidentally tap, which we greatly appreciated.

Four navigation buttons line the bottom of the screen: Chats, Contacts, Social, and Settings. The Chats screen lists your most recent chats, so you can continue a previous conversation or start a new one by tapping Magic Wand in the right corner. We got a friend to download the app and were able to text back and forth without any trouble. We loved the Web WeChat feature for moving from an iPhone to a PC, which was simply a matter of visiting the site on our PC and scanning the QR code using the app's scanner. In a matter of seconds, we were ready to chat with our other WeChat friends on our PC. If you're brave, the Social feature lets you look around for other WeChat users to chat with, or browse your own contacts. There is a very ample Settings menu for updating your WeChat profile, adjusting privacy settings, and browsing a helpful FAQ.

With the explosion of smartphones has come an explosion of social apps. WeChat stands out as a viable contender and we recommend it to all users.
