Monetization Potential

Social messaging market offers a broad range of monetization strategies. By entering this industry you won’t be constrained with only one revenue channel.

Open yourself to the new market full of opportunities where you can always take advantage of an additional revenue stream.

All-in-one Communication Tool

People are tired of using single-purpose apps. They want a multi-tool to communicate over all platforms using all possible formats. This is a great opportunity for entrepreneurs with new ideas to attract users from old messengers to a new one.


KIK is known for allowing users to register without providing a telephone number, thus preserving their anonymity. This feature led to the huge success, gaining popularity among the teenage audience.

You can enhance this feature by adding sophisticated encryption and message protection algorithms, which will be highly appreciated in today's insecure cyber world.

How much does an app like KIK will cost to develop?

The average budget for development of messenger like KIK is ranging from $5 to $15k. The price varies primarily because of the OS platform you choose, a number of features, modules, and content you’d like to add to the app.

Keep in mind that a single-platform KIK app for iPhone with plenty of features may cost $10k as well as a simple messenger for both iOS and Android. Write down your requirements in the form below so we could provide you with a precise quote.

How long may take the development process?

As well as in the case of the price, it depends on the complexity of the application you want. For instance, social instant chat for iOS took us 616 hours from start to finish.

Meanwhile, a multi-platform solution for Web, Android and iOS does not necessarily triple time for development, because all apps will share a single back-end. In addition, we’ve got extensive experience in coding messaging apps, which give us a huge boost in productivity as well as knowledge on how to make it cheaper without damaging quality.

Can you make a cross-platform mobile app?

No, and we are strongly advising you not to do so! All cross-platform apps experience a significant loss of performance because they are based on techs that designed to operate in web-environment rather than mobile.

Another big disadvantage for social media chat is the fact that the development of cross-platform solutions results in disruption of OS guidelines and lowers the UI\UX quality. As a result, your users will feel uncomfortable interacting with your app since they are used to a certain behavior of interface elements on their device.

Can you add end-to-end encryption into my messaging app?

Yes. There are many technologies and methods used to secure communication between users. End-to-end encryption is one of them and we can integrate it into your app.

We can also integrate additional authorization and content protection methods that are used in enterprise level messengers in order to secure content from falling into the wrong hands.

Can you make a KIK web client?

You bet! We are proficient in development of SaaS projects and cloud solutions. Making a KIK web app for us will be no different from mobile development. In fact, you can later use back-end part of your web app to build mobile versions on top of it.
