Viber is one of the most popular messaging and social networking apps around, and it’s now available for the Nokia Asha 308Asha 310 and Asha 311.

There are currently over 200 million Viber users around the world, and there’s set to be a lot more thanks to the availability for Asha owners.

You can send regular messages through Viber and have a conversation with friends, and it’s easy to attach photographs and send them via 3G or Wi-Fi.

Make voice calls

It’s also possible to make voice calls using Viber – giving you all the functionality that you’ve come to expect from your Nokia Asha device. The one key difference is that because everything works over 3G or Wi-Fi, you can use your contract’s data allowance or join a wireless network, and the result is a lot cheaper – or even free.

This comes in particularly useful when you’re chatting or sharing content with people in different countries, where voice calls or pictures messages can prove to be prohibitively expensive.

Automatic contacts sync

Start Viber for the first time and the app automatically syncs your contacts. That means that all your friends who are already using the social messaging service will be added to your phonebook, and it’s easy to start chatting.

Message threads are colour coded, so there’s no confusion when you’re reading back messages. You can even set up group messages, so you can chat with several of your friends simultaneously.

Viber is available to download now for the Nokia Asha 308, Asha 310 and Asha 311.
