Chikka txt Messenger with some of its unique features stands it out in its category and makes it incomparable. It is not just a simple text instant messenger or sms sender, it is specifically designed for two way communication from PC-to PC or PC-to-Mobiles communication. Means you can send message from your PC to your Mobile buddy as an SMS, and your Mobile buddy can reply back to your SMS, and you will get back the message on your PC if you are online or otherwise if you are registered using your Mobile, then you will get the reply to your Mobile. Well, if you do not have a mobile or does not want to register with your mobile then you still be able to create an account but you will not get your online Buddies alert message and Message from your buddies when you are offline from your favorite Chikka Messenger.
A feature you will surely like is that you can send large Messages/SMS of 320 chars and your message will not be truncated as your Mobile buddy will get it in multiple SMS without any appended Ads.
Of course you can send large SMS but a picture is worth of thousand words, and Great chikka gives you the opportunity to send Pictures as an MMS to your buddies. But its not free, you have to purchase credits by using credit card or you can also use your Paypal account to purchase credits if you have one to send MMS.
There are some other nice features. You can send Group Message to your added Buddies. You can update your Chikka Txt Messenger and add new skins if available from inbuilt web update feature. Or you can use your credits to send Top-up/ prepaid credits to your friend or family mobiles to recharge. You can also send flowers to your girl/boy friend. But presently this feature is only available in Philippine.
Well I will not say that it is a perfect one because it also has some limitations like you can send limited number of Txt SMS free in a specific Country/ Region per day, for more message you have to purchase credits. Also according to Chikka presently it support only 9 countries: Philippines, Guam, Spain, UK, US, India, Saipan, Hong Kong and Indonesia and not all mobile service providers are supported from these countries. But they are adding more countries and service providers regularly so checkout Chikka's site for latest supported countries and mobiles service providers list. So giving it a first choice is not a bad idea.

    Very disappointing. I prefer the old version.

    The old version is much reliable and simple. Version 6 keeps me uneasy because sometimes the other side doesn't receive. I have to keep on re-booting to make sure it is responding properly. When I switch contacts, the messages disappear so I don't know if I am still texting with the same contact or a different one. Sometimes it won't connect. Sometimes it just stop responding. I am not a programmer but there must be another way using old Chikka with open software like Linux if Windows is the problem. I can revived an old computer just for the old Chikka version if the application is available. Thanks to Chikka for the service but it could have been done much better.

    Agreed with all the comments. When I used version 6, it eats up my load, a total disappointment. Deleted my account and now I can't receive text messages.
