Rawr Messenger: 3D Avatar Chat brings your text messages to life like never before and makes texting a far more entertaining experience.

Available for free, this messaging app takes texting to a new level.


To get things going, Rawr Messenger, from Futurefly, lets you create your personal avatar, complete with different outfit options.

Through different hashtags you can make your avatars act on different animations within your conversations. I thought the range of hashtag options was very impressive–ranging from dancing to commenting on the latest UK vote.

Changing the backgrounds of your conversations is also a possibility. Having other friends using the app is really needed to make your communication equally entertaining on both ends, but the app also does let you connect with other Rawr users around the world if you’d prefer to do that (instead of just chatting with your own contacts).

When actually using the app I did not experience any noticeable lag, and this helped to keep the pace of the conversations flowing smoothly.

Even if you’ve never used any personal avatar-creator apps before, setting up your character on Rawr Messenger is extremely simple to do.

A step-by-step process guides you, and figuring out how to use the app is pretty much entirely intuitive; first time users should have no problem with getting used to sending messages through Rawr Messenger.

The characters created through the app are fun and the personalization options are actually variable enough that most users can probably create at least somewhat of a likeness of themselves.


As mentioned previously, Rawr Messenger is a free app. However, some of the features of the app can only be fully enjoyed with in-app purchases; options for these purchases range from $0.99 to $14.99.

While some of these cheaper packages might make sense for users who find that they use the app frequently, the more expensive options seem hard to justify; other similar apps can offer almost the same features but for far cheaper.

As a whole, Rawr Messenger is a fun app that can spice up messaging with your friends. However, it’s hard to see any need for spending more than a few dollars on add-ons.
