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.

What's New in Version 2.17.5
• Bug fixes.
I don't see why this app can't just store all data in the cloud with end-to-end encryption like other messaging apps, instead of storing all data on a specific device and requiring manual backups from users in order to sync the data to other devices. The latter is incredibly troublesome and takes up unnecessary space on my 16GB phone. I'm trying to backup my chats now because Whatsapp says I have no backups at all even though I set it to back up my chats automatically every week, and I spent several hours troubleshooting issues with backup and restore. Troublesome and outdated application. Would switch to another messaging app in a heartbeat if not for the fact that I require this for work and school.
There's something wrong with my whatsapp. Although I read the messages, it will still show that I have not read it and whenever I send a text, it will go all the way back up which means I have to scroll all the way down again. I restarted the app but the problem is still there. I'm not sure if it's the problem with my phone or your app. It will be great if you fix this problem. I've been using WhatsApp for years and this is the only time I had a problem with WhatsApp.
Improvement to be made
It is a very user friendly app, that is very helpful. But one feature that can be included is the ability to go back to a certain date in a chat without having to manually scroll through the entire chat history. Keep up the great work!
