Android market has become a huge mega force, and thousands of apps are produced every day. When we talk about the texting, no one uses standard SMS messages anymore.

This is product of Facebook and in the beginning almost everyone rushed to download it. Now it has more than one hundred billion of active users. The Facebook Messenger enables Facebook users to communicate in real time using their smartphone devices. The good news is you don’t have to log in to Facebook to use this app. All systems support Messenger, and you can use it to text, share audio, video and picture material. You just have to download this app from the Apple or Google store, and you are ready to go.
The same thing like with the previously mentioned, WhatsApp has been downloaded by one billion of users. This is the second largest messaging app, and it has a slightly different concept than Facebook Messenger. Once you download this app, it connects your phone book with all people who have an account with WhatsApp. It has a beautiful and straightforward interface and organizes all chats into different sections. Two years ago, this company started with the encryption of messages, which means no one can read or track the messages you sent. This is a great feature, especially now when almost nothing is private.
