Instant messaging (IM) service WeChat was developed by Tencent and released in 2011. The Chinese developed app, whose localized name translates to "micro message," is the most popular IM app in the world. WeChat serves over 850 million active users, the majority of whom are within China. Within WeChat, you can communicate in many ways with friends and other WeChat users. The most common use of WeChat is some form of instant messaging. Whether it's text message, voice message, or stickers, you can keep in touch in these ways, and more. WeChat also includes a walkie talkie mode, which can add an extra element of fun with friends. WeChat Pay is another big feature within the app, allowing you to pay for items from vendors using your digital wallet. Your WeChat Pay account can be topped up by accepting charges to your added debit card, or by receiving money from other WeChat Pay users. Linked credit cards can only pay to vendors, and do not allow you to top up your balance. Services vary between countries and cities on WeChat. Some options include ordering food, hailing a taxi, or paying utilities. These options require the vendors to develop a 'mini-app' for the app, which adds this feature for WeChat users to enjoy. WeChat is completely free to use, with no subscription fees. You can chat, call, send stickers, and pay for services in one convenient app. You can also play competitive games with your friends in-between times. WeChat also has a desktop app available for Windows and Mac.
Mobile Strike is a freemium mobile massively multiplayer online game. It focuses on the player building up a military base of operations to battle with other players. Mobile Strike is developed by Epic War, a subsidiary of MZ (formerly Machine Zone). A marketing campaign featuring former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger catapulted Mobile Strike to be a top grossing app worldwide. Mobile Strike launched in 2015. The game guides players through the game as buildings, units, and upgrades are unlocked as you progress. These offer new elements of gameplay that are not available when you play the game for the first time. This process of easing players in to the finer elements of the game helps avoid an overwhelming learning curve at the start of the game. Your military base is laid out in a grid, making it easy to place structures. Over time, structures can be upgraded, which allows you to train better units, gather more resources, and make your base harder to destroy. The game's combat mode is attacking other players, so you'll want the best firepower to destroy them and keep your base safe. This is where the upgrades will come in handy. Over time, your commander will gain new skills. These skills can aid in attacking other players, as well as defending your base. Generally, the game is built around timers. As you progress, the time you need to wait for upgrades to complete, or training units, will rise. The timers can be reduced, but this often requires buying in-app purchases that reduce the time waiting. As a top grossing app, it is likely that many Mobile Strike players take advantage of these boosts.
