"Free messaging service, as it must be"

Reviewed by / May 04, 2012

Hookt Messenger is a cross-platform messenger that allows you to send message even from the web

Actually, that's the added-value feature of Hookt: it's free, easy-to-use and cross-platform, available for Android, RIM, iOS and even mobile web. The latter is a service that other well-known cross-platform messaging service (yes, the one with the green icon) doesn't offer. In fact, there are some similar apps that overtake that service in some regards, except in the amount of users. Hookt Messenger is one of them.

Hookt allows you to chat with your friends no matter what mobile OS they're using. What's more, it supports group chats up to 10 people. It includes read indicators: you'll surely know when your friends have received or read your messages (no more unclear checks). You can share media files with your friends. It also includes push notifications.

The app is set in a good-looking black background layout. Finding and inviting friends to use the apps is really easy. We recommend you to give a go with your friends. You'll specially love sending free messages to your friends and chat groups from your browsers. No more looking at your phone when you're at the office: answer your friends from your computer. High recommendable.

Developer's original description available here
Hookt is a new and free way for you to share, chat, and message your REAL friends in private.
Some of the key benefits of using Hookt include:

* 100% Free - Communicate in private for free across long distances, and across iPhone, Blackberry, and Android devices.
* REAL friends - Here's a chance to hit reset, cut through the clutter, and be your true private self.
* 100% Privacy - Sharing your photos and content are 100% private. Maintain your privacy. Hookt doesn't believe in 'public' profiles.
* Reactions - Don't be limited to just LIKEing something, create your very own personalized reactions by taking a photo of your facial expression. You can be excited! or shocked! or angry! …whatever you want – it’s YOUR reaction.
* Chat - Chat, message and share in private and group conversations of up to 10 friends. We keep your privacy and never store your messages after you've received them.
* Read indicators - Know when your friends have received and read your private messages.
