Viber sounds like a sex toy.

Apart from the thread resurrection, I did try this a long time ago and it was mediocre, at best. I tried it again more recently and while it had improved, it still had some way to go.
I can't complain for the price paid, however!

A family member installed it on their iPhone, and it kept draining the battery pretty quickly. In the end, I uninstalled it.
Has anyone else had the same experience?

Do you have to add contacts and do others have to have the same app?
Or do you connect to other networks like Facebook, Skype, etc. etc.
Are voice calls to landlines? And text to cellphone numbers?
Didn't find much info on the site.
I guess what I'm getting at, is if it's just another messenger program that you and your contacts both have to have, then it's not much use.

Thanx for the reply.
I will answer your questions in the order you made them:
1. Others need to have the app if you want to text them or call them and use all the features of the app
2. You can connect to Facebook and Twitter for messaging
3. Voice calls and texts are for those who have the same app
Why is it of not much use? The advantage with it, and I will give you my case as an example, my girlfriend has absolutely no cellular signal where she lives so she connects to her WIFI and we use Viber to talk and text, so it is very useful for situations like that. The texting is also better than stock messaging because its instant and it tells you when the person on the other end is typing and if they received the message or not.
It's very useful dude. Think of it as a marriage between Skype and Whatapp but without the video capabilities.

Thanx for the reply.
When I mean "no use", I mean that it is no use to me if Im the only one with it and no friends have it.
But as you stated, it connects with Facebook and Skype, so yeah it'd be useful then.
It's just that I find it hard trying to talk friends into trying new stuff, and unless they do, a new communications program isn't much use.
Ive been through that on computer for many many years.
