You’ve probably heard the sad news that Chikka is going to say bye bye for reals on March 31. I know that such news had a tremendous impact to all of us who grew up using the said app/website despite the popularization of messaging apps like Messenger and Viber.
Even though it’s hard to swallow the truth that Chikka will be gone in a few weeks, there are actually quite a handful of websites that are similar to Chikka. I have tried and tested these sites over the past years and they work just as fine. So if you’re someone who’s lazy to load up his/her mobile phone and just use SMS for emergency purposes, then you’re in the right place. Let us start.
AFreeSMS, just like what its name suggests, is a site that allows you to send SMS worldwide. Yes, worldwide. So if you have any family or friends that you wanted to send a text to, then just head over to this site. It can let you send up to 160 characters.
You know what’s astig about this site? You guessed it. The site lets you send free SMS to all networks. The characters are only limited to 130, though.
I didn’t discover this site by myself as it was suggested by one of my good friends. Since then, it has been my go-to SMS site. It lets you send up to 160 characters and what’s also nice about it is that it has an Android app (sorry, iOS users) which you can download here 10.
The name of the site is pretty self-explanatory. TxTLibre allows you to send free unlimited text messages on all mobile phone networks in the country. Among the aforementioned sites, this one lets you send up to 180 characters and does not involve any captcha that gets in your way of sending an SMS.
And there you have it. If we missed anything on this list, don’t hesitate to leave a comment down below!
