WhatsApp Messenger is a smartphone messenger available for iPhone and other smartphones. WhatsApp uses your 3G or WiFi (when available) to message with friends and family. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, pictures, audio notes, and video messages. First year FREE! ($0.99 USD/year after)
WHY USE WHATSAPP:
* NO HIDDEN COST: Once you and your friends download the application, you can use it to chat as much as you want. Send a million messages a day to your friends for free! WhatsApp uses your Internet connection: 3G/EDGE or Wi-Fi when available.
* MULTIMEDIA: Send Video, Images, and Voice notes to your friends and contacts.
* GROUP CHAT: Enjoy group conversations with your contacts. Add or Remove group participants, change group subject and set a group icon.
* PERSONAL: Set a profile photo which will be shown to all your contacts
* NO INTERNATIONAL CHARGES: Just like there is no added cost to send an international email, there is no cost to send WhatsApp messages internationally. Chat with your friends all over the world as long as they have WhatsApp Messenger installed and avoid those pesky international SMS costs.
* SAY NO TO PINS AND USERNAMES: Why even bother having to remember yet another PIN or username? WhatsApp works with your phone number, just like SMS would, and integrates flawlessly with your existing phone address book.
* NO NEED TO LOG IN/OUT: No more confusion about getting logged off from another computer or device. With push notifications WhatsApp is ALWAYS ON and ALWAYS CONNECTED.
* NO NEED TO ADD BUDDIES: Your Address Book is used to automatically connect you with your contacts. Your contacts who already have WhatsApp Messenger will be automatically displayed under Favorites, similar to a buddy list.
* OFFLINE MESSAGES: Even if you miss your push notifications or turn off your iPhone, WhatsApp will save your messages offline until you retrieve them during the next application use.
* AND MUCH MORE: Share location and places, Exchange contacts, Custom wallpaper, Custom notification sounds, Landscape mode, Message timestamps, Email chat history, Broadcast messages and media to many contacts at once, and much much more!

What's New in Version 2.12.4
• Bug fixes.
Works better than native Text App!
This is quite the powerful free texting/call application I've ever used, better yet than Viber by far.
Don't pay attention to negative reviews about things not working properly or being buggy; chances are there are issues with that persons device. My experience has been nothing but stellar:
Texting is fast, and being able to see if the message was both received and viewed is very powerful - I hope that feature set never goes away.
Calls are *crystal* clear, far better than using the normal cell connection. I wish making a normal call sounded this good!! Seriously.
The only issue I see is with privacy; if you don't want someone to be in your contact list anymore you can only delete them from YOUR contact list, that does not remove you from THEIR contact list. You would have to block them.
The functionality is totally stable, the features are amazing. I wouldn't be surprise if Google or Apple ends up purchasing them and making it the default texting app. It's that powerful and awesome.
Get it and enjoy!
There is literally nothing wrong with this app. Honestly, it offers more advantages than regular messages on any phone. It can send top quality videos and photos, and you can even click and zoom in on people's profile photos! You could even create a cool representative profile pic for a group chat. 😋
Some people find fault with the fact that you can't video call people, but you either have FaceTime or you can buy hangouts on Microsoft or Apple phones for free on either App Store. It's fantastic. Heck, it even makes me want to disable regular messages and replace it with WhatsApp instead. 😉
Get it. You'll love it.
Love this App!!
I have been using WhatsApp for several years now. I live in America and the rest of my family lives in South Africa. WhatsApp has made communication so easy for us!! We started a group and now everyone can chat together. I recently noticed that we can now make phone calls through the app. I am very excited about this but haven't yet been able to use this feature since my mom's phone says that she can't make/receive phone calls through this app. 😒
This App has truly been a wonderful tool to share videos and pictures with friends and family who lives so far apart!
