WhatsApp Messenger is a FREE messaging app available for iPhone and other smartphones.

Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, calls, photos, videos, and Voice Messages.

• 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.

Ratings and Reviews
So I decided to download this a week ago. I’ve used it in the past with talking to friends in the military because their cell service didn’t cover where they were stationed at. But the reason I feel that I’m finally posting a review. I had lost touch with a truly good friend 7 yrs ago due to me being in a dangerous situation and had to cut all contact with everyone in order to stay safe. But when I came out of hiding I couldn’t get a hold of my friend. For 7 years I continued looking on every app, social media, the number I had never seemed to work or not be answered. I downloaded this app on Tuesday to talk to a military friend once again and synced my contacts. & who did I find on here, my friend from 7 years ago. We talked and we both have been in shock and the happiest ever. Because they were looking for me too. But with all my old emails and numbers that no longer existed. If it wasn’t for this app I wouldn’t have been reunited with my long lost love & friend. Thank you WhatsApp! I have cried many times over os grateful that things like this exist because you never know, I might’ve never found them and it was by chance that I downloaded this app. :’D
Customer support does not answer emails. App was better before the updates
There used to be a feature on iPhone WhatsApp where you could hide the sender’s name, but still receive a notification and all it said was “notification”. That was a plus for me in terms of keeping my privacy but still being alerted of an incoming message. Since the recent updates, that no longer exists. There are only options on lock screen to 1) see the sender and message 2)see the sender and hide the message 3) do not see the notification at all. I have reached out to support MANY times to ask if they would be bringing back the option of not seeing the sender but still seeing the notification as “notification” but the customer support team either IGNORES my email or sends me the same message every time with the above 3 options, even after explaining EXACTLY what the situation is. Every time I write to them, I forward them the thread from before, either the unanswered or the previous reply that didn’t answer anything. Support still does not pay attention to my question. As a result, I have to turn my notifications to not show on lock screen. This app was way better before. And customer support doesn’t pay attention to what you’re actually asking them.
Overall my experience with this app has been fairly well. But I have a boyfriend in Saudi Arabia; for some reason it does not connect very well over there. Or does not work very well. Every time I try to make a video call or a voice call it has bad connection, static, or just disconnects altogether. It has worked in every other country but I have been to or have friends in that country I have called and I have had no problem. Some of these have been Third World country some of these are bustling busy countries. It doesn’t matter it’s worked everywhere except for Saudi Arabia for some reason and this is the most important one that I need to keep contact with because my significant other is over there. So it’s very frustrating but over all this app has been well very good services and lay out the calling is free I can do group chats and group calls which is very convenient because we can’t do that in FaceTime and it keeps me connected world wide with all of my friends and family and I love it. Besides that I am just very unhappy with the connection over in Saudi Arabia. It may be from strict censorship in that country or just the app.
