Yet Another “Talk” Show…


ya… another new “chat” on the net in town,
ie. ChatOn
by Samsung Electronics,
available on iOS and Android,
ooh, Android, kononnya, but not my droid, again!!! ~_~
my iPod Touch 2nd Gen, na… not compatible, same “problem” as viber had on it, (ok, my problem, viber already said, they don’t officially support iPod Touch 2nd Gen anymore!)
but ChatOn is worse, it’ll just crash and “exit” the programme on its own…
THAT’s why, I still like Naver’s Line… (my first post, and second post here!)
to make things worse,
my android?
it doesn’t even show up in my apps search result, ie. totally not supported platform,
ok, my droid is 2.1? or earlier, and that’s the max I can go… @_@
however, I do kinda find this ChatOn interesting…
read here,
seems like you can just treat it as another social network platform, while you’re on the move…
imagine, if all your facebook friends, twitter friends moved over here, will you ditch those 2 platforms?
in a way, ideally, I guess so…
if what you’re interested is mainly those tweeting and replying and posting, and locationing type of activities…
anyway,
since I’m not a Samsung device user, and I guess I never will… (cos, I’m pro-jap-product!)
so, I can’t really tell you the full feature…
so far… to me, it’s just another apps, like Line, like Viber…
(in fact, not so much like iOS iMessage… I love this feature in iOS 5 indeed…)

my Line


I’ve been asking a few of my friends to install “Line“, ya, it’s a funny apps name, whenever I type “Line”, I find it too simple to type…
well, if you’ve used Viber before, then you’ll know what I mean, basically it’s once of those text/voice chat apps that one can install on his/her smartphone, started from iOS, (though it’s more meant for iPhone, but then, I could install it on iPod, or iPad, unlike bloody whatspp, which you really have to have an iPhone to install it!)
and eventually made available in android phones…
yes, I’m having an android,
I’ve tried to move my Viber (from iPod) to android before, however, as what one of my friends mentioned, Viber “caused” his android OS “shaky”, and that he uninstalled it…
so, I tried Viber on my android, I think it’s 2.1 or older, unupgradeable…
and yes, it froze my screen, and my subsequent apps a couple of time, that the only thing I could do,
was a reboot!
after trying twice, (ie. install, uninstall, give it a chance, install and then uninstall, for good!)
I’ve decided to call it quit!
then~~ along, came “Line”.. ooh~~ what more to say, it’s by Japanese~~~~~ yatta~~~
I tried on iPod, it’s not made for big screen like iPad, though you can just install and use it, just like Viber…
it’s good, though I couldn’t tell the difference or any extra “perks” offered by Line as compared to Viber…
ok ok… if I were to say something,
it’s better and more pleasant background,
and it’s this “sticker” things, ie. emoticons, smileys, and bla bla bla…
and guess what? one of my friends love using it, as compared to Viber, simply because of this “addons”, ie. emoticons, japanese style, some silly icons, bla bla bla…
cos, when one is out of idea of what to type to somebody, see!! since it’s free, and you just have to use it, and when you’re so bored… you just wanna send something (cos, it’s free!), but you just don’t know what to send, what to write…
you just send some silly stickers to the other person…
and yes, that’s the crap I get… but seems like there’re people enjoying it! right??
that’s the “perks” of naver’s Line, then, if you ask me…
here, naver’s Line on top, vs. Viber…
can you really tell the difference?? now… I can’t… besides what I’ve mentioned…
however, on system wise, I opt for Line, cos, it’s compatible (ooh, how long I’ve not used this word) to my old android…. and there,
Viber, I’ve to say “bye” to you…
what more to say, one of my other friends, who uses Viber to text chat with me every day (oh, if my mom’s still around, I bet I’ll get her to do the same thing too!)
see, but she uses Viber on iPad, and I’m urging her to upgrade her iOS… ie. iOS 5.0, then,
she’ll have the built-in messaging things, which again, is great… (that I shall blog, next round!)
which is Apple’s own iOS’ iMessage…
if she’s on that…
then, yes, I’ll ditch Viber for good,
while Line, and Whatsapp stay with my android…
cos, I’d like to centralise most of my “communication” apps in my android… ^_^ (ooh! centralise, another word I’ve not been using for a looooooooong time!)
