KakaoTalk for iOS

KakaoTalk Messenger is more than a basic chat tool; it combines a number of features and tools to create a communication environment very much like a social network, but with a much greater emphasis on one-on-one and personal conversations. The app is designed for easy access to your contacts, combined with a number of additional tools to enhance your use of the service.

One of the most important things about KakaoTalk is the ability to connect with other users, so before you can use it, you must connect your phone number to an account. This requires a couple of verification steps, but when done, the app can access your contact list and check to see who you know that uses the app. You can then friend them and start chatting. Of course, there is far more to it than that. Chatting can be done in groups, in chat rooms, directly with people on your friend list, or via video or voice chat. You can also find people by ID search, QR code (scanning their phones), or shaking the phone near someone else with an account. Search tools exist, as well, but the dual verification system maintains privacy within the system. Other fun additions like items, themes, and a Plus-Friends list for celebrities and popular users are all welcome features.

It's no wonder that KakaoTalk is becoming increasingly popular with teenagers and younger adults who are jaded by the privacy issues that major social networks like Facebook tend to have. It is quick, mobile, and flexible enough to adjust to how you use the tool. For those that enjoy its use, there are many ways to do so.
