With Viber app for PC and phones, you can now make free local and international VoIP calls to other viber users over 3G/4G or WiFi connections. Users can also send free text messages, photo messages, video messages and exchange stickers, emoticons with other users.
The app also supports doodling on photos, letting you draw or paint over photos or on a blank page before sending them to friends.
How Does Viber Work?
Once you and your friends install Viber, you can use it to talk and message as much as you want.
You don't have to register! No registration or passwords required. Viber uses your phone number as your "identity" and lets you make free Viber phone calls to any of your friends that have Viber - using THEIR phone number.
Once you've downloaded Viber, you will receive an access code via SMS to activate Viber. The access code ensures that you are the real owner of the cellphone number you have registered and prevents others from obtaining your access code and placing calls with your caller ID.

Does Viber Work for International Calls?
Yes! You can make local AND international Viber to Viber calls at no cost. It doesn't matter whether you and your friends are in a completely different country, you can talk and text as much as you want! Just make sure your friends have Viber.
Does Viber Work on Blackberry?
Yes although you might not be able to make calls with your BIS. I tried it on my BB. I was able to chat with my contacts but couldn't call them.
Guess I will need to use a data plan and configure my BB with my network's APN settings. I read somewhere that if I use WiFi, I will be able to make calls with Viber on Blackberry. I will try it and share my experience in another blog post.
For now, I am rocking Viber on iPad.
Add me On Viber and let's keep talking!
