    "I like Viber, it is an ok app. The issue is not a lot of people in my area know about it or use it. Everyone is still using Whatsapp. So I will have to stay with that for a while. Maybe Viber could become more popular if they did an ad campaign, "

    "Great apps which I have seen used successfully before. The rating is low because it does not go well with Iphones and that includes the new ones. This rating is a five if it is more compatible with them?"

    "Messenger apps have been around forever, but the problem is they fall from grace with the crowds, or they quit working like they used to. This one is right at the top of the heap right now. It works and probably will keep working for the foreseeable future. Chat on!"

    "Concept is wonderful but the delivery is not so good. I think if they will update the software and fix some of the annoying bugs this would take the video app market by storm, until then just cross your fingers and hope for the best."
