LiveProfile is an alternative to WhatsApp and lets you send text messages to all your contacts for free over the Internet, when you have access to a WiFi or 3G network. However, the application goes well beyond the mere exchange of messages and integrates with other social networks like Twitter and Facebook, so you can update your status in real time or change your avatar, among other things. Any messages sent through the application, in theory, take less than a second to reach their recipient. In addition, we can see the exact time when they were sent, when it arrived and, more importantly, if they were read. LiveProfile is one of the best IM applications out there. Not only is it as expansive as the mythical WhatsApp, but it also has the quality and range of features to make it a serious contender.
