    "I have definitely used Messenger now that it's added GIFs and video sending. The stickers are very cute and it's also nifty being able to see when your friend last was on, or read your message."

    "I find the LINE app to be a great way to uplift my day. Not only do I receive great international voice and video calls with my friends, but I am able to add adorable stickers to the images. Just a little pick-me-up in otherwise stressful days. As a communication app, LINE images and voice are clear, free of distortions and able to receive a signal from wherever I might be."

    "At my job, I handle several accounts involving cooperation with various Indian and/or Nepali organizations, and I was looking for a good Indian messaging app that my various Indian and Nepali interlocutors and I could use to communicate quickly and securely. We eventually settled on Wibrate for its good quality encryption, ease of use and ability to quickly and efficiently poll the whole team to get a "sense of the room" on projects. Wibrate is optimized to work securely and efficiently with free WiFi, which is great for all of us, as all members of the team frequently work from cafes, restaurants and other public places. I highly recommend this app for anyone who wants to securely chat with people in India, or in Nepal or Bangladesh, where many people use Indian tech."
