Kik is a free instant messenger app for mobile devices that allows users to easily connect with family and friends through messages, pictures, videos, websites, and even sketches, all of which are shared via chat. The service basically lets you connect and explore the world in an innovative way you never thought possible.
One really great thing about this app, is that unlike WhatsApp and other similar mobile applications you don’t have to enter a phone number in order to sign up for an account, all you have to do is choose a username and you’re good to go.
However, creating an account may be confusing and even seem complicated for someone who has never done it before, because Kik accounts can only be created through the mobile app. Since the company focuses on mobile technologies only, there isn’t a computer version available that you can download for PC or Mac right now.
But if you really want to download, install, and use Kik on PC, then make sure to check out the BlueStacks Android emulator, I’ve heard and also read great things about it, and it allows you to access the service, along with all its features online.
