Viber has updated its messaging app for the iPhone and iPad in five countries (Belarus, Malaysia, Israel, Singapore and the Ukraine) with a feature that allows users in those territories to play a select number of games inside the app. This feature will be rolled out worldwide to other parts of the world in the coming weeks.
Viber has rolled out quite the update for iOS. Version 4.2 introduces a massive redesign of the experience, alongside some new features to boot. The last time we looked at the popular messaging service on iOS was late last year.
Viber, the popular VOIP calling service, has announced Viber Out, promising worldwide low-cost calling to any regular phone number. Skype already offers a similar service – funnily enough called Skype Out – but Viber's key differentiator is its pricing. More to the point, the promise of seriously undercutting Skype, with credit for calls obtained by way of an in-app purchase.
Following just days after Tango's servers were compromised, the Syrian Electronic Army(SEA) has hacked another calling and messaging service, Viber. E Hacking News is reporting that this time SEA was able to acquire a partial database backup containing phone numbers, UDIDs (Viber generated, not Apple UDIDs) and IP addresses, among other user information for some of Viber's more than 200 million subscribers.
Viber, the massively popular VoIP service that allows users to send free texts and pictures and make free calls worldwide for free, has pushed out a huge update to their iOS app. But, that's not all. Along with the update to v3.0, Viber is launching for the first time a desktop client, so Viber users can get the same great service from their Mac as well as their iOS devices.
