Works great; watch out for the Rip off price
I used this App over a three years ago right up to last year when I used my iPad less due to swapping my iPhone for a Galaxy. At that time, there was a one time subscription of around £5.00. I came back to using my iPad and reinstalled the program happily in the belief when I pressed reactivate subscription, that I was reactivated my original install subscription.
Little did I know that the app had gone on to weekly subscription of £3.99!
For what you get I would expect it to self type, make phone calls, even clean the screen for that type of money!!! I find £3.99 to be a massive overcharged, in fact, I would go as far to say it’s a full on rip-off. Then I had the misfortune of using the non-subscription, it runs more adverts than ITV during the commercial break! Don’t get me wrong it works, it’s convenient on an iPad, but £3.99 per week? They must think I was born yesterday.
This is basically a Scam
The first and most important reason for my title is the fact that after you’ve installed the App and you attempt using it the day after, you’re presented with a screen that is basically trying to trick you into subscribing to their weekly £3.99 subscription. The screen is basically presented in a way that completely block the usual screen and like there is no way to get around it.
I was in a hurry and just wanted to get rid of this blocking screen and before I knew it I had signed up to the £4 a week subscription... So I would argue there is a case here for misleading customers and entrapping them into an outrageously overpriced subscription.
£3.99 or approx £16 a month to have WhatsApp on your iPad?!! That is like daylight robbery! Add to that the fact that it is poorly designed for use with an iPad Smart Keyboard as the type suggestion bar that always pops up as you type, completely obscures the message entry field.
Intrusive ads cost a fortune to remove
The messenger works fine even though it needs loading every time it’s reopened. What makes it a no-go is the fact that the ads in the free version actually block the top part of the screen, obscuring the top of you chat list when the keyboard is up. The price to remove them? £3.99 per week! That’s what my phone contract costs. That’s more than a Netflix subscription. That’s more than the price of the professional editing software license I use for work. And this is for an app that doesn’t even provide its own messaging service. Completely bonkers pricing and utterly bizarre business model. A one-off £10 payment would likely have generated twice the income.
