WeChat Comments

WeChat as a chat app is good

Comment by poojasinha25
about WeChat and Photo4Tune Aug 2014

I like WeChat and I use it regularly. My only complain is with regard to the chat stickers that we usually end up paying! If only all those emoticons were for free. One of my friends recently suggested me Photo4tune which is also available for download on Playstore. One thing good about Photo4tune is their event creation feature apart from the emoticons and chat stickers.
