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's New in Version 2.12.4
• Bug fixes.
Unable to recover chat history after update!?
Updated on 14th July, optimized, opened whatsapp and it tells me that whatsapp is unable to read my chats and an option for me to 'begin recovery'. when I touch it, it moves to about 1-2% and then a message pops up telling me that I have to use my icloud backup (last backup was 2-3 months ago) and I do not want to use the icloud backup because I will lose a lot of information since the time until now. I don't believe that after a simple update, my chats cannot be recovered and this is absolutely ridiculous. I updated because the app was lagging and took very long to open but all I get is this!? please help.
Group chat function to be enhanced
It would be good if the group chat function in whatsapp is enhanced with the option for users to be able to choose if they want to join in. It is irritating when a user is automatically entered into a group chat in which he or she may not have been interested at all! Would appreciate if you could look into my feedback on the whatsapp application. Thanks.
No protection against scammer
I just receive notification I'm added to a group chat where I was immediately removed. The contents was of advertisement for quick cash. It's by a US number. I can't block the number as it's in a group chat I'm no longer part of. This was not my first time receiving this kind of messages either. :( Whatsapp need to tighten security against something like this.
