Hi

Recent changes to my employment mean that I'm constantly travelling on exciting jaunts for projects.
It's truly enthralling to work abroad and immerse myself in my dream career whereas my husband, who I'm missing dearly! is in Manchester in a less flexible field. Situationally this has been lonely.

We've been searching for an app that can help us communicate while I'm away that's friendly and easy to use. We both are very private people having communicated via a free app until its crashing of late. What would you suggest as a communication tool for us? Preferably one that doesn't use too much data!

I hope to read your answers.

Edith

Hi Edith,

I've been frequently using Skype for years to message people, even before I had a computer with a webcam. You can easily install Skype and remained signed in on computer and mobile devices so messages and calls can be received - that's what I do. It's private in the sense that you can't write on a person's wall or publicly announce approval with likes as in with FB. Perfect for complete privacy.

Hello.
Skype most certainly is the most popular of them. Also viber and kakaotalk. For Facetime yourself and husband must possess Apple devices to use so I recommend a different application.

Yes, it's important for me to be able to message via computer as well (in the circumstance that my mobile battery is flat!). Some of these apps don't have a computer version which I admit is difficult. Sharing travel photos from my DSLR with my husband is not easy as it is, without the extra step of sending it my phone first! I'll suggest Skype to my husband.

Yes! You've raised a point. My husband has both Windows and Apple computers at home. Furthermore he recently switched to an Android phone whereas I have both an Apple computer and iPhone. Facetime isn't an option nor is iMessage as such. Thank you for your suggestions.
