    "I downloaded this when the latest IMO update wasn't compatible with my phone. It took some getting used to, but after learning the new interface, I have to say it's more than apt as a replacement. It has all the same features and more, in addition to having a wider range of compatible platforms. I highly recommend it."

    "This looks like a very good app for this sort of purpose. It is extremely popular, with a very very high number of user reviews, and the overall user consensus is really positive too. I think I'd be extremely happy with this application as an alternative to IMO or for general chatting and communication needs."

    "I loved this app. It works well for calls, messages, sharing photos etc. It's encrypted so I know my messages are safe. I can use it on my tablet, phone or computer which makes it easily interchangeable going from device to device. The app doesn't have access to my data and my messages always remain private. It's a good alternative to other products out there if you value your privacy. "
