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!
*Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details.

Good... but needs an edit message button
This app is great. I like using the app to keep in contact with my friends. I also like the fact that every message sent using this app is encrypted for security reasons so messages between recipients cannot be read by a third party. The features are good and work well. However, I would prefer this app for messaging even more if there was an 'edit message' button which allows the user to correct typing mistakes (like Skype messaging). It is annoying to type out one message, and then have to send an influx of multiple texts to correct typos or grammatical errors. This is otherwise a good app. Thanks.
Love this app.. But..
I really love this app.. I use it daily.. But it really needs more fun to it.. It's boring.. Colour messages.. Built in gifs..different fonts to choose.. Etc.. It needs a face-lift.. Especially to keep up with the new and improved iPhone messenger..id rather use Wattsapp... But I love the features in messenger.. The only thing you can change is the background.. For as long as this app has been around.. It hasn't improved a great deal.. Give it some SPUNK.. 😁
i recently used it this year after i changed my phone from galaxy note 4 to iphone 7. i didn't find any bugs in WA . i hope and wish that this developer continue to support and upgrade the software so we can continue to enjoy it. ps: i willy to donate some money to support its development and its security
