On Twitter and Facebook I see more and more people posting their Kik usernames. I never would have thought I'd see the day when a BBM-clone would start to get popular past the enthusiast crowd. I'm debating on getting Kik myself but the thing is...it's pretty bare bones. No profile pics, no group chat, no status updates, etc. In terms of free apps PingChat and LiveProfile (baffles me why they would only release the Android beta) seem to offer more.
