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.

iMessage vs Whatsapp
With the introduction of iMessage from IOS5, Whatsapp will see the imperative need to enhance it features in order to continue competitions with iMessage. While LINE is gaining user shares rapidly, Whatsapp is going to face tougher competition now. Not to mention that both iMessage and LINE are free for use while Whatsapp is charging at US$0.99 per user. Many of my acquaintances are switching to LINE, iMessage, Skype and Viber already. Whatsapp developers, don't be taken aback by these challenges. Pool your resources together, get behind closed door, and I am sure you guys will once again surprise us like what you had done in the past. Cheers!
Feel blessed to have WhatsApp bridging distance between countries. Have tried the recently added video too. A suggestion. With so many groups and people on whatsapp , can we have selective notification? I mean, I want to be notified only if I hear from a special person or group. So that I do not have to keep checking whatsapp through out the day. Thanks .
It take so Long just to deliver a message even if my wifi is full bar I stand so close to the wifi but still the message is not being delivered I thought it was cause the wifi not good but I ask my fried they also say the same thing could you please fix this and also it take so Long to send picture other than this nothing else I think whatsapp is awesome it gives people easier way to talk to each other :)
