WS App Review: Viber

WS App Review: Viber


Have you ever wished for an inexpensive way to stay in touch with friends and relatives across the country, or even around the world? Now you can, with the super-cool Viber app! Compatible with a variety of smartphone platforms, Viber is a simple, quick and easy method for connecting with buddies for free. Worried about tracking call times or data usage?  Thanks to this innovative app, distance is no longer an issue when it comes to nationwide or international communications.

From photos to simple text messages, this app is great for sharing all sorts of news and information in a hassle-free way. Additionally, there is no need to scramble for usernames to add to your contacts list, since Viber automatically recognizes current app users from within your existing phone book. What I absolutely love about this app is its extremely user-friendly interface. There really is nothing complex about navigating through the different menus of the app, and when you want to make a call or send a text, simply click on a contact’s name and type or talk away. Yes, it’s that easy!

Aside from eliminating the need for sending out invites or collecting usernames, Viber allows its users to personalize their accounts by adding a miniature profile picture next to their name. Whenever a call is placed or a text message is sent out, fellow users will be able to see their friend’s image throughout the conversation. Another cool feature of this versatile app is how it automatically displays users who recently downloaded Viber, so you can easily stay up-to-date with newly added contacts from your phone book list.

Lastly, another nice feature of Viber is its capability to host group messaging. This is great for organizing meetups or upcoming special events with friends or family members in a quick and efficient way. I have used this feature to send mass texts to my bridal party and keep them all on the same page for wedding plans! Overall, it’s a great way to keep everyone in the loop all at once instead of having to send out multiple texts to each individual person.

Best of all, Viber works on a number of smartphone devices. So, if you have an iPhone and your sister in Canada has an Android, you can still enjoy the benefits of connecting with this useful app.

    Will this work on a Nexus 7 tablet? I don’t have a smartphone but do have the tablet.

    • Viber says:

      Hi Joe,

      Viber does not officially support Tablets yet, and so we can’t fully guarantee that it would work on all Tablets.
      However, in the meantime you can still download Viber from PlayStore, or from the direct link in our official HelpDesk at . Try it out and we would be happy to receive your feedback on how it works on your device so we could improve Viber accordingly.

  3. You need to take part in a contest for one of the highest quality blogs online.
    I most certainly will highly recommend this site!

  5. Having read this I thought it was extremely informative. I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this
    content together. I once again find myself spending way
    too much time both reading and leaving comments.
    But so what, it was still worth it!
