Even though Waterloo-based Kik Messenger has been banned from BlackBerry devices (and knee deep in a lawsuit) they have proudly announced that they crossed the 3 million user mark. Their messaging platform is similar to BlackBerry Messenger where you can send a message and immediately see if it’s been delivered, read and if the other is responding. Kik states that their community grows between 10,000 – 15,000 per day and is now driven by Android and iPhone users (RIM shut them down in November) and on average each user sends about 20 messages a day. Kik will also be coming to Windows Phone 7 devices soon.
On another Kik note, additional features coming soon to all platforms include picture messaging and group chat… plus they are moving forward with their mobile streaming music service.
