Hike Comments

Nice app but not recommended for non-Indians

Comment by AcceptedUser
about Hike Dec 2014

hike is a good alternative to whatsapp for Indians. Non-Indians can also use this app but its sticker store contains stickers in Tamil, Telugu and a lot of local Indian languages that can annoy you :D In short, this messenger is made for Indians but you can give it a try.
