    Quick tip for all of you who also hate WhatsApp but feel like you can't live without it. I installed this app, Hike, and so far it works extremely nice. Faster, cleaner, and the most important: secure.

    They're still young, global rollout is happening in phases but should be available in most countries within the next few days.

    Site: hike - fun, free messaging for life

    Hope I have finally found a WhatsApp killer. It now depends on spreading the word :-)

    I'm not receiving an SMS with the pin to register. I tried the 'call me' option but the pin they gave me doesn't work.

    Well I installed on 2 German phones yesterday, and now on a English number. All works fine for me.

    Maybe you should try again?

    I tested Hike, but it did fail at updating my contacts. Deleted it the other day. Don't have too many problems with WhatsApp.
