To my regular readers, this blog post is a submission for IndiBlogger’s “WeChat with Anyone, Anywhere!” contest. The theme and rules sounded fun, and considering the Samsung Galaxy S4 – a coveted phone in my wishlist – is one of the prizes, I felt I had to give it a shot!

I tried to download and check out WeChat, but unfortunately my Nokia E72 isn’t considered a “smartphone” by today’s standards. I did check out the many WeChat videos on YouTube to get an idea of the app’s interface and pretty nifty features, like voice chat and group chat on the fly. You can find more videos on WeChat’s official YouTube page.
I’ll update this post with some more dream chats sessions when I think of them! 🙂
