Viber is one of the latest social networking apps on the play store. It is developed by Viber Media Inc. Viber is similar to whatsapp but, has more features as compared to whatsapp. It allows you to send free pictures and messages to your friends online (similar to whatspp) but, the added benefit is that you can also make calls online to your friends.
It is based on your phone number and the activation code is sent by a call to your number. The app detects the activation number and you are good to go. It first of all asks for permission to sync all your contacts. Without this you cannot start using the application as it has to detect which of your friends in your contacts use viber. Once this is done, you can make free calls or send free text messages to your friends. You can also make calls and send messages from your phone using your service provider from this app.
All the tabs are at the bottom of the screen. Once you activate the app, the first thing you see is the messages you have sent. The next tab contains all your contacts, you can search for a particular contact by typing the name in the search bar. The next tab shows the calls you have made.
To make a free call or message all you have to do is search for the contact, once you select the contact you get the options to make a free call, free message, make a regular call or send a regular message i.e make a call or send a message from your service provider. The other person also should have an active internet connection in order to receive your call or message.
