    Hi! I've been wondering what people are now using to send instant messages to others.
    Like Skype? Or Whatsapp?
    Since I'm not living in the US, what apps or softwares do Americans use the most?
    It may be a little off-topic but I really want to communicate & interact with users of my app. I just don't know where to start

    I'm mostly using BlackBerry Messenger and Google Hangouts. Although I do like Skype also. I'm not a big fan of Whatsapp. (I like the developer thou )

    I think that all devs use email. I prefer iMessage.

    I like iMessage but prefer the ease of sending current location with whatsapp. If iMessage had fast location sharing it would be ideal.

    I use Google Hangout the most and iMessage, if you want to consider that an IM; I really don't.

    Just remembered that I didn't subscribe to this thread...no wonder there're no notifications.

    ok, if one more question is acceptable, how would you like to contact to the developers of an app? i mean, if you have ideas, suggestions, or bug reports, how would you like to reach the developers besides the traditional emails?

    yep, that's true.
    but we also add the Twitter & Facebook link within our app.
    so far we've achieved a bad result..only 10 followers / likes are our users

    Twitter and Facebook are other options. I think that most companies use Twitter to help customers.

    All. but whatsapp (never liked it) and BBM (after 5 year of blackberry I hate anything BB related)

    iMessage (rarely)
    Viber (always, most used)
    Wechat (sometimes)
    Line (sometimes)
    KakaoTalk (my favorite, sometimes)
    Kik (rarely)
    Threema (never, so far)
    MyEnigma (very rarely)
    Telegram (sometimes)
    Surespot (never, so far).

    Actually I am not using all of them simply because I do not have any contact using Threema, Kik and Surespot. All the others work fine with the exception of Telegram which is still a bit buggy: new contacts are not always syncronized.

    Wow, that's a lot! To tell the truth, I've also registered with many IM apps, but seldom used any. I was trying to help our team reach out to our users but don't know how.
    Ok, we've opened a Facebook Page and a twitter account, and even a skype account, but no one seems to be interested.
    Maybe my next thread would be "how would you like to contact to a developer if you are using his/her app?"

    Via a forum just like this one. I do not want to be solicited in any manner. If I purchase an app, I'd like to think that the developer will be grateful for it and make him or herself available for feedback (both good and bad) via a standard email address. I don't mind a single pop-up after about a week asking if I enjoy the app or asking me to rate the app, but if I'm hounded, I'll uninstall the app and vehemently let it be known that the app's developer(s) opt to harass customers with irritating pop-ups which in turn diminish the user experience.
