It didn’t take me long to see what the problem is with Kik. It’s clear that some people blatantly use Kik to send and receive nude pictures. (Kik also includes an integrated web browser with easy access to inappropriate content for children).
Given that there are many other free texting apps available, including i Message which is already included for i Pod touch, I don’t see a need for Kik on a child’s mobile device.
Kik is just one of many free texting apps available in the App store.
When I first wrote this up in 2012, I was curious about Kik so I went to the App store to download it.
