Top 10 reasons why hike is better than whatsapp…
Hike is getting popularity day by day, and it seems it is certainly going to compete other popular messaging apps. In jun, 2014 Hike crosses the 20 million user marks globally and is among one of the top 6 apps on android, iOS and Window store in India. now we will see its cool features which whatsapp doesn’t have & has not provided till this date.
1. Offline chat: one of the unique feature of hike messaging is its offline chat facility. It is the first to deliver such kind of service in IM. One can even chat if he or she is offline. So friend, you don’t need to worry about your validity of the data pack.
2. Stickers: Hike has amazing collection of stickers. These Stickers enhances the experience of our chat and show the real emotions of user’s mood.
A user has reviewed Hike about its stickers in these words “Everyone is fond of its unique variety of stickers. These are best ever, rarely seen on other chatting app.” While whatsapp has no such facility, although emoji are there.

3. Hidden Mode: Hike provides its users the amazing facility of hidden chat. This allows hike users to keep their private chat hidden such as no person will ever came to know that they are hidden. These conversation can only be opened if we enter the right hidden mode password. This feature is extremely useful for the users from protecting their private chat from their parents. This feature of Hike is certainly a boon to its users.
4. SMS facility: Hike messenger provides facility of free messaging to non-hike numbers too. Although these messages are limited in a month but these can be extended by inviting your friend to hike messenger or frequently using the app. There is no limit on free messages. Whatsapp does not provide you any such facility of messaging to non whatsapp numbers.
5. Selected online: In hike user can show their last seen to some of the selected friends, which Hike call favorites friends. While whatsapp lacks such customization and flexibility in online visibility to others.
6. Two way wallpaper or chat theme: while in the chat you can change the wallpaper of your conversations. If you change it this will get reflected on the wallpaper of friend’s phone too. These wallpaper are called two way wallpaper. Whatsapp has the facility of changing the chat wallpaper too but it does not have the two way wallpapers.
7. Reward facility: Hike provides you credit for recharging phone and free coupons for shopping. When you first join hike, you will be given an initial credit of RS 10. And each friend invited by you, if join hike through your send link within 24 hrs and send you a stickers, you will be provided another credit of RS 20. As it is the in the initial stage of its success. It needs such promotional offers and schemes. While Whatsapp has already got lots of popularity. So it does need such kind of things. But I bet you friends no one will be able to deny the opportunity of free recharges.
8. Larger range of content sharing: while in the Whatsapp it is quite typical to share content other than photo, video and music. Hike provides us a wide range of attachment sharing. All the file format can be shared through hike like pdf,doc,zip,APK,ppt etc upto 100MB each. These figures surpasses the attachment limit of all the present messengers and more interestingly even email service providers. So this is the another area where it gets a bonus point over Whatsapp and others.
9. Furious speed: Hike messenger has remarkable speed of delivering messages. It provides you exact details of your message while it is its way of delivering or it has reached or delivered.
10. Routinely Updates: Hike developers promises its users to update the app routinely. And they are quite effectively success on their promises till this date. Every months hike team comes with new updates to the app. It has good user interface. Every month hike provides updates on improving its speed and reliability. Some more functions are also included in the update.

Although it has more functions than any other instant messengers, it lacks the facility of backing up the messages. If calling functions become available in hike than we can say it would become an awesome and perfect app. Hope we get it soon too.
While it consists of all the functions of which other popular messaging app have, like Whatsapp. It provides; like last seen, auto save media, notification, blocking any specific numbers and group chat etc. One can say the it is the modernized version of Whatsapp. One could hope that this messaging app can get popularity and it will be seen on every user’s smartphone as their primary messaging app which it really deserve.
I hope friends you enjoy this post and like it for sure.
And also “khud ko thoda hike kar le yar” (do yourself some hike friend)
