Privacy-first messenger app, very popular in India

THE VERDICT

hike messenger is a super popular communication app in India, designed specifically with the Indian market in mind. It's privacy-first, so you can only be seen and contacted by the people that you allow to be on your list. Hide private chats behind a password so that no one can snoop, even if they have your phone. Tons of stickers and emoji coupled with an excellent, intuitive design make hike the messenger of choice in India.

THE PROS

Send media and documents easily through hike, including PDF, ZIP, Doc, PPT, and even APK. The devs are super attentive to comments and user issues, which we always love to see in any app.

THE CONS

It's not hugely useful outside of India.


Original review from Aug 27, 2014:

Welcome to hike messenger, a messaging app that puts privacy first. It was designed in India to cater to the needs of the Indian market, but it's accessible from anywhere. Create a personal profile in hike, but only allow it to be seen by people on your list - not your aunts, not the creepster down the street, no one! You can also choose to hide specific chats behind a password to keep out anyone nosy enough to poke around your device when you're not looking.

There are also stickers and emoji galore to personalize your messages. Plus, you can send media and non-media files and documents, including PDF, ZIP, Doc, PPT, and even APK. There's an offline mode that allows you to contact your friends even when they don't have wifi access - hike detects that for you and sends them an SMS instead, at zero cost to you. Any reply they send will be in hike.

hike is really well-designed with a ton of thoughtful, useful features that perfectly fit the needs of Indian users. If you're not located in India, you probably won't find many of your friends on it, though.

Original score: 8.8
