Hike, just like WhatsApp messaging service. But according to me with nicer UI and some new features.
Hike was launched on 14 November, is the brainchild of Kavin Bharti Mittal, son of Sunil Bharti Mittal founder-chairman of Bharti Airtel, India's largest mobile network with over 180 million subscribers. Hike, was built by BhartiSoftBank, the 50-50 joint venture between Bharti and Japan's mobile operator SoftBank.
The free mobile app, now on the top of the list on the Android marketplace Google Play Store, has been downloaded over a million times so far.The newest kid on mobile instant messaging scene, has had such a wild welcome and adoption rate that it brought the servers down causing disruption in services.
