While 4Talk IM has some interesting features, the app hasn’t created much of a stir on the web as of yet. No reviews exist for the app on the Amazon app store. A handful of users gave the app a slightly above average rating on Google Play and there haven’t been enough reviews for a rating to be posted on iTunes. There are many alternative chat apps available, so it may be difficult for 4Talk IM to really make waves in this category.
4Talk IM is a free messaging service that lets user stay in touch. While it includes a number of convenient features, it doesn’t offer anything new or cutting edge. There are many other chat programs that are already hugely popular and in use all over the world, so it will be difficult for 4Talk IM to attract a large user base. The app has potential so its popularity may grow in time. Some new, unique features might help boost the app’s appeal in an already saturated market.
4Talk IM’s interface is a strong point for the app. The layout is clean and presents all the details the user needs without any fluff or distractions. That being said, the interface isn’t remarkable, either. It offers an overall positive experience that retains a look better suited to a professional environment rather than casual chatting. New users should have no problem figuring out how to chat, send images and more using 4Talk IM.
Apple users can download 4Talk IM from the iTunes store. Simple search for the application then follow the download instructions to download and install on a compatible device. The 4Talk IM official website also includes download links for Android and PC users. The user will have to create a login through the mobile app to begin using 4Talk IM.
4Talk IM is available to all users at no cost. No subscription or purchase is necessary. Users can visit the official website or find the app on iTunes or Android stores to download.

4Talk IM is a good choice for users who dislike their current IM service as well as those who prefer something that’s straightforward in terms of design and functionality. The interface is clean with a hint of professionalism throughout. The free price is also appealing to casual users, however some may not be willing to leave their preferred IM service for this one.
