When I got my first smartphone – I remember being told to make sure to get Viber. And then my foreign friends said that they use Whatsapp. So, I got that too! But between the two, I have always been partial to Whatsapp – but most of those in my contact list are using Viber, I had no choice.
During the last half of 2014. I have begun to notice that Viber does not deliver all of the messages sent over its app. I thought it was impossible – but it was. And then some images and videos take too long to load. Then private groups began to have strangers in their group. I didn’t think it was possible since it was a *private* group. Then the ads – the sudden messages from Viber announcing this and that. As the months passed, the loading of messages took very long too. There would be notifications that you have an X number of messages – then when it loads, you get 1 out of the X number of messages. These *late* messages appear days after it was sent. How very unreliable for a free messaging service right? Last month, I saw that a friend had the Telegram Messenger. I decided to give it a try, so I downloaded it to my iPhone. Then I was told by a friend that there is an app for desktop – so I also got it. This friend said that Telegram Messenger syncs easily and is very reliable. I have been using it for a few weeks now and I am very happy with it. I get all the images and messages sent to me. It loads faster compared to Viber. Plus, since it’s private – no one can join in your group!! There are no advertisements too! I hope that people switch. Viber is so unreliable already. Please make the switch and see why:
Try it out and see the difference!!
