    "Being limited on how many text messages or phone calls I can make was awful, but once I started using Viber, I no longer had this problem. I sent so many messages for free and saved myself so much money already. The stickers and emojis make it really fun to use too! My in laws went to France a few weeks ago and we were able to talk on the phone at no cost to any of us. It was great."

    "It is a decent app but you should not expect it to replace other well known video call apps like Skype. After the recent update, many users including me are reporting crashes without any reason. It could have been something that I daily use, but it is not widely used by my friends."

    "This solution is poor. Line has too many ads that constantly interrupt calls and messages. LINE would be worth it if it was not plagued with ads. Would never download, and I know there has to be a better app out there than this. "

    "This is a free video and text app, and it also lets you send pics and videos. The best feature is that you can send to anyone, even those using other devices. The only drawback is that it does have ads. Why pay for phone calls and video call features with your current provider when you can use imo and it is free?"
