The most competitive apps

Messaging apps are one of the most competitive types of software. The vast majority of mobile users are typically loyal to one. Developers are trying to win users attention by competing on a host of advanced text features – emojis, videos, voice broadcasts. Name a feature, somebody out there is working on a clever implementation of it.


Statista shows that the two the most globally used apps are WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, no surprise there. However, QQ Mobile and WeChat are breathing down their necks.

QQ has super-fast, real-time instant messaging, peer-to-peer file transfers and it also gives its users full control of their privacy settings. WeChat users are able to enjoy a voice chat feature which turns their smart phones into a walkie-talkie. Customizability is said to be one of the users’ favorite features. Users also seem to like the ‘’Shake’’ feature. This is an interesting way to discover new users by just a shaking your smartphone.
