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 a great app!!
We live out in the sticks and often don't get a mobile signal - my husband is Applephobic, and has some other inferior phone, so we can't iMessage - whatsapp bridges the gap via wifi, so I can nag via text whenever required.
It even has 2 ticks - one says it's been sent - the next that he has seen it - safe in the knowledge that when I add double cream to the list of emergency shop items he needs to pick up, he may come back with it too (disclaimer - this does depend on him remembering he received that text - but I'm not sure there is an app out there for that!)
What's App Review
Considering another social app for your mobile amongst the many that are available, I have found this one to be great in saving money.
As we all seem to be in contracts where we practically have unlimited messages you would think it would render this app obsolete; but this is totally not the case. Being able to send texts to my friends abroad makes a massive difference and costs nothing. Sending photo messages to everyone that has the app again saves me at least £0.20 per message.
How can you not like this?
The downside to this is the other person needs the app too.
So convince them! It's great if you like to save the pennies like me.
The best app really 👍👌👊
I've found that you can control whatsapp to suit you, which makes it the best. At first, the last seen stamp, I got fed up with because you always have to reply to messages or your friend will think something of you. You can choose to remove this, which was great, but I couldn't see when other people we last online 😢 I still use it though! Secondly, you can mute group chats! Yay! Finally. Always wanted to do that. The bad is just that you can't send previously recorded audio notes. There's always room in the future...
