Kik is a messenger app for smartphones that allows you to stay in touch with your friends and family using instant messages. With this app installed on your phone, you can send and receive messages to your friends and family and stay in touch with them.
The app does not seem to be available for PC and Mac and if reaching out to your smartphone for sending a message via Kik is not something you want to do, then you might want to find a way to get Kik to run on your PC or on your Mac.
Fortunately though, there is a way for you to get Kik to run on your computer (whether it is based on Windows or OS X). The method uses an emulator to run the Kik messenger on your computer and to help you send messages right off the screen of your computer. Sounds so convenient, doesn’t it?
Here’s how to do that:
Using Bluestacks to Get Kik to Run on a Windows PC or Mac
