Great start, but needs improvement
I love using WhatsApp on my iPhone and like the idea of being able to use the desktop app as well. The only real gripe I have is that the desktop app does not recognize keyboard text shortcuts, nor does it allow you to type seamlessly in another language. In my case, I use WhatsApp a lot to talk to friends and family in Mexico and Spain—in Spanish. The app does not recognize that I am typing in Spanish and marks all words as mis-spelled and underlines them in red. Further, it does not do any auto-correct or suggested text features. A big request I would have is to incorporate the languages / multi-language abilities that other Mac developers (and Apple) put into their apps. If the app were improved with this upgrade, I would give this app 5 stars!
Good, but has potential to be better!
I really like the idea of this, to function much like iMessage does! However, there is definitely room for improvement. I would really like to see video calls supported on the desktop version as it is on mobile, much like FaceTime but with compatibility between different types of phones. I think this is the most useful feature that could be added. However, as some other users have mentioned, it would also be quite nice for this application to function without having your phone on, nearby, and connected. These changes would make this desktop version SO wonderful, up to par of the mobile version we all know and love. Would love to see these features rolled out sometime soon, please!
2 stars for WHILE it’s connected to my phone
I’m on a cruise ship. I have (1) device capability for the internet package. In other words, I can use either my computer or my phone. So if I want to use my laptop, then my phone must be removed (logged out) from the internet. THEREFORE, I can’t get my important messages from WhatsApp while I’m on my Mac! So "What’sThePoint," is a good name for the Mac version of this app. It’s utterly, useless to me if I have to use my phone. Why not JUST use my phone? Why make an app for a laptop at ALL, if you need a phone to use it! It’s like having a miniature wallet attached with a chain, to my regular wallet - It’s not big enough to hold any cards or cash or photos or ANYTHING, but it looks JUST like the BIG wallet and takes up one more pocket in my pants…
Otherwise, it’s great because it does what it says it does...
