Waterloo-born Kik launches app on Symbian and Windows Phone

Waterloo-based startup Kik Interactive has launched its popular Kik app on the Symbian and Windows Phone platforms.

Kik’s Windows app will be optimized for 7.5, or “Mango,” while the Symbian app will start off in private beta.

The app is already available for iOS and Android. It was once available for BlackBerry, then banned, but has since returned to the platform.
