New communication applications seem to pop up by the day and Viber is one of them. Viber is an app that enables users to text, chat and call for free. Thanks to this application, you can keep in touch with family and friends without worrying about the SMS or call rates.
Viber comes with many awesome features and among them is the feature that allows you to communicate with people who are in other states, countries or continents. The best part is that this service will not cost you a dime, no matter the distance.
Instead of using call minutes when making calls, Viber uses your internet connection. In other words, the only fee you will have to pay is that of data. It is also worth noting that, when you use Viber to make calls, it only takes up a small portion of your data. This is what makes this application one of the most popular communication applications around.

Unlike using other communication applications, when you use Viber, you do not need to have a password or username. The reason being that Viber only uses your phone number as the account login. It automatically synchronizes with the Viber using contacts in your phone book. You can view the list of contacts you have, who also use Viber at the Viber account contacts section.
Viber mostly comes in handy if you have a group of people with whom you communicate often. This app greatly reduces your cost for voice calling and almost completely eliminates the need to send text messages.
