    You should really make a top 10 list if your websites name is top 10 base! And what about Telegram it has over 200million downloads and is by far better than WhatsApp or Fb Messenger. And I can play tetris or minesweeper in a messenger how awesome is that!You could also include apps like Threema, Kakao…
