There are several instant messengers available today. But the best chat apps for android are the ones that suit your individual tastes and requirements. Using a messenger would be very useful it connects instantly to all your Facebook contacts unlike Facebook’s official instant messaging app that has been recently been upgraded to deliver a faster service and interface. In case of a messenger, you can also message your friends who are not on Facebook. You can do this by using their phone numbers. Another benefit of using the messenger is that you can access all the messages in your Facebook without even having to open the website or the main app. The messenger has many features like groups, stickers, location data, voice recordings, free calls, photo sharing and many other features.

You can also use iOS reminder and app with panic mode in chat apps. With the help of iOS reminder in chat apps, you can set reminders or notifications for yourself and also create the list of things to do in the day. If you have not worked out on certain things from the list, the iOS reminder will add a new reminder for you. It also congrats you as and when you complete the tasks from the “To-Do” list.

iMessage is another app that generally comes built in. This is an advantage for all those people who do not install apps or are not enthusiastic about taking the pain of signing up for a service. Telegram has caught up the attention of many people in the recent past. The reason for its sudden rise in popularity is considered to be that it is plain, simple and good looking. Sicher is yet again another German app that comes unlimited which is free and completely secure. This could be perhaps the only app that is not influenced by the US Government and its secret policy. Though Twitter can also be used as a messaging service, the disadvantage in case of Twitter is that you can send a direct message to only those people who are following you. Though Slack is not officially a messaging app, it has all the features of a regular messenger. You can also have shortcut apps for iphone which create short cut to an application from the list of activities installed in your phone.

The Android market is flooded with applications, and it can really get confusing for people to choose an app, that is perfect for them. There are a lot of articles out there, which have listed the best Android must-have apps. But, not a lot of them talk about applications that are specifically designed to solve your communication woes. I am going to list down some apps that are just amazing. And anyone, who has ever used these apps, has only good things to say about them.

Handcent SMS

This free app can really spice up your phone, when it comes to texting people. Handcent SMS is one of the best applications out there, and the recent update has made it even fancier. The added features include…

The ability to backup your sms’.You can schedule a sms.You can send e-cards and greetings to your friends using the application.Downloadable themes, fonts and smileys.

And if that doesn’t sound tempting enough, there are tons of other features, which make this killer app a must-have for any communication fanatic. Just give this application a try, and you will never go back to your default boring android texting application ever again.

TiKL- Touch to Talk

If you often find yourself dialing numbers to call up your friend or girlfriend, you will find this application to be an absolute relief. It will literally turn your Android into a Walkie Talkie, and all you need to do is push a button and you can directly talk to your friends, who have the application installed on their phones as well.

The application is available free of cost on Google play, and has pretty good reviews from users all across the world. And the best part is that, the application only makes use of your data plan, and therefore, you are not charged for any calls. Great isn’t it?

Opera Mobile

The Opera Mobile is undoubtedly, one of the best browsers for your android. It has many advanced features such as…

The ability to synchronize bookmarks, Speed Dial and more between your computer and your mobile phone.Built-in support for Facebook and twitter, which makes, sharing web content much easier.You can download games and applications from the Opera Mobile Store, directly from the Speed Dial itself.

Opera has a very strong reputation, and has been around since many years. And now, you can experience the power of this browser, on your phone as well.

The android marketplace is growing bigger and better with every passing day. But these 3 applications, in my opinion, are simply mind-blowing. I do agree though, that everyone has their favourites. And currently, there are applications that are slowly catching up with the apps that we just discussed. Just take a peek, and you might come across an app, that is worthy of being number 4 or better… on this list.
