WhatsApp Messenger is a FREE messaging app available for iPhone and other smartphones. WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, calls, photos, videos, and Voice Messages.
WHY USE WHATSAPP:
• NO FEES: WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family, so you don't have to pay for every message or call.* There are no subscription fees to use WhatsApp.
• MULTIMEDIA: Send and receive photos, videos, and Voice Messages.
• FREE CALLS: Call your friends and family for free with WhatsApp Calling, even if they're in another country.* WhatsApp calls use your phone's Internet connection rather than your cellular plan's voice minutes. (Note: Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details. Also, you can't access 911 and other emergency service numbers through WhatsApp).
• GROUP CHAT: Enjoy group chats with your contacts so you can easily stay in touch with your friends or family.
• WHATSAPP WEB: You can also send and receive WhatsApp messages right from your computer's browser.
• NO INTERNATIONAL CHARGES: There's no extra charge to send WhatsApp messages internationally. Chat with your friends around the world and avoid international SMS charges.*
• SAY NO TO USERNAMES AND PINS: Why bother having to remember yet another username or PIN? WhatsApp works with your phone number, just like SMS, and integrates seamlessly with your phone's existing address book.
• ALWAYS LOGGED IN: With WhatsApp, you're always logged in so you don't miss messages. No more confusion about whether you're logged in or logged out.
• QUICKLY CONNECT WITH YOUR CONTACTS: Your address book is used to quickly and easily connect you with your contacts who have WhatsApp so there's no need to add hard-to-remember usernames.
• OFFLINE MESSAGES: Even if you miss your notifications or turn off your phone, WhatsApp will save your recent messages until the next time you use the app.
• AND MUCH MORE: Share your location, exchange contacts, set custom wallpapers and notification sounds, email chat history, broadcast messages to multiple contacts at once, and more!

Thanks for fixing crash
I need to give you 5 stars because Whatsapp has been phenomenal.
I must say though the crash was handled badly ... It was off for 2 days for iPhone users, and you should have tweeted or had a note on your website to tell us what was going on. It's ok to make mistakes but you should be open and authentic with your users.
Anyway it is free, great when it works, and I have no idea how you make money out of this service, so ... 5 stars.
Audio creation function - Rubbish
I'd like to ask why the audio function requires my finger to be held down for the duration of any audio creation. I personally think this is a dumb design given the slightest finger/thumb movement results in my audio being deleted, along with any incoming calls doing the same. When I'm 5+ minutes into my audio and this occurs it is extremely frustrating and essentially means I've wasted 5+ minutes of my life.
Why can't this be a two click process; one, to start the audio and two, to stop & send the audio?
I use the audio function daily so would really appreciate this being reviewed and improved going forward.
Apart from the above Whatsapp is an excellent app for communication.
Don't know where he world would be without Whatsapp. The only thing I don't like about this app is how it stores Whatsapp media along with the camera roll. It makes it hard and sometimes annoying to find the photos you are looking for because all the forwarded photos from Whatsapp comes in the way.
