Letâs talk about one of the biggest fruits of technology: Communication. Long before, communication can only be established with either face to face conversations, or writing a letter. Talking to each other personally is real time indeed. But once you and the person you are talking to part ways, where would the conversation then go? It would definitely be bound to be dropped. Now, how about writing letters? Send it to the post office, and hope for the bestâhope that it would really be sent to whom should the letter be sentâyouâre lucky enough if it took only a few weeks.

But all thanks to technological advancements, you could just beep your friend with a message, and you both could converse in a jiffy. But If you are kitting yourself out on a budget, cell phone bill might be one of the expenses on the list that you want to lessen. Can you lessen your cell phone bill and still get in touch with your close circle?


Actually, you can. As for now, there are already smartphone apps idealized and intended for communication meandering over the internet. Whatâs good about them is that they are actually freeâand donât even charge a cent when you send a message or call. All you need is to connect to a Wi-Fi or 3G technology and off you go. Letâs hit the list below with the social networking apps that could cater your communication needs:
#1: Viber

Personally, I have been using Viber to get me connected from my close circle. Why wouldn't I? This app is offered across all mobile platforms be it Android, iOS, Windows, and BlackBerry, and is absolutely free. You can actually use it to send a text message or call as if you are sending a text message or calling naturally, but with some bonuses like sending a certain sized image, video, and audio files. Moreover, you can also use your phone for normal and regular calls and texts even when you are using the app at the moment. Again, you just need to have a good Wi-Fi connection, and you are good to go!
#2: Skype

Chatting and calling just aren't enough? Switch to Skype and you could video chat with your best buds. This app is best for people who want to be connected despite of them being oceans apart. So, what if your ISP provider is not available, should the conversation stop there? Not to worry since you can buy credit for calling and dial a regular call to someone even outside the country.
#3: Facebook Messenger

Facebook also comes with a Facebook Messenger app if you donât want to download and install the whole package. In my case, Iâm into messages only since Iâm quite busy with a lot of things to dredge up the newsfeed. So, if you just want to just drop a message quickly, Facebook Messenger will do just fine. If you donât want others to see you online, you can simply inbox the people you want to converse with and exchange messages without anyone else knowing you are online. You can even pop out a chat head to converse with your friends easily. Pretty neat, right?
Slash the cell phone bill with these messaging apps and stay connected with your circle. Also, keep your phones charged up with your portable chargers to keep the conversation going. You just have to tap one of these apps to catch up!
