Poll results: Which chat app do you use most?
In the past 9 years, phones have slowly transformed from devices for vocal communication to devices for text communication. On paper, this may look like a devolution, a step back, but in reality, a plethora of apps and services have made texting just that much more convenient. Most of the time, the sender knows when their message has been received and / or read, and the recipient can read and reply at their own convenience. Not to mention, it's all free as it's done over the Internet, which we are already paying for anyway. And sharing media, such as photos, videos, sound files, et cetera is much easier. Calls aren't extinct, no. But they are more of an “urgent” or “serious” channel of communication.

Two years ago, we asked you the question — which chat app are you using? Well, the landscape has changed a bit in the past months, and we felt it appropriate to ask once again — which app do you favor now, in 2016? And wow... is WhatsApp popular or what? Here are the results!
