Viber gets Mac and Windows desktop apps, starts to look like a serious Skype competitor
Even better - Viber has now gotten a desktop client, an app for Windows and Mac that you can use to call and message from. The Viber desktop client makes it a direct competitor to the Microsoft-owned Skype.
This also makes Viber truly cross-platform - it runs on iOS, Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, Nokia Symbian phones and even the outdated Samsung bada OS.
Here is a quick rundown of the desktop client features, and it is all free for you to grab at the link below:
- Best-quality HD voice calls
- Video calls
- Free text and photo messages
- Group conversations
- No registration, passwords or invitations required
- Contacts and messages sync between your mobile and Windows
- Transfer ongoing calls between devices

I live in London and use Viber to stay connected with friends and family back home in the US. This app is significantly easier to use and loads much quicker than Skype. On the iPhone it's interface mimmicks the telephone interface and works just as smooth. Now only if my phone carrier in the UK was decent the app would work much better!

I regularly use Skype for my Instant Messaging needs. Does Viber allow group text/voice/video calls like Skype? Might have to look into it.
