Kik was built to mimic the look and functionality of smartphone SMS text messaging, except of course it works with user profiles and username to chat with friends as opposed to phone numbers.
Here are some of the features you can expect to get out of using it.
Kik code scanning: Every Kik user has a Kik code that can be accessed from their settings (the gear icon in the top left corner of the chats tab).
To add a user from their Kik code, tap the search icon, then tap Find People, then tap Scan a Kik Code.
Live typing: You can see whenever the person you're chatting with is typing a message live, which is helpful in knowing that you should be expecting to receive a message back within a few seconds.

Once you have the app installed, Kik will automatically ask you to create a new account or sign-in if you already have an account.
Users can connect with each other by searching for a particular user's username, scanning a Kik code, or using their phone contacts by entering their phone number.
With Kik, you can send and receive an unlimited number messages to anyone else who has a Kik account.
