If you have an iPhone and you communicate with friends and family who also have iPhones, then you are in good shape. However, if others use Android, some love Blackberry, some must have Nokia (you get my point), then it's hard to find an app that you can share to message each other (without using paid texting from your carrier, of course). WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform messenger that allows iPhone owners to communicate with those who have Blackberry or Nokia phones. It uses push notification to instantly get messages, and has so many useful options. Send and receive messages, pictures, audio notes, and video messages free of charge. Just a few of the great features of this social networking app are as follows:
- Free Messaging: Chat as much as you want. WhatsApp uses 3G/EDGE or Wi-Fi
- MMS Media: Send Video, Images, and Voice notes to your friends. (iPhone 3GS required to send and save video)
- No International Charges: There is no cost to send WhatsApp messages internationally.
- No Pin Number Necessary: WhatsApp works with your phone number and integrates with your phone address book.
- Offline Messages: WhatsApp will save your messages offline until you retrieve them.
- Status: Use the status feature of WhatsApp to inform your contacts if you are busy, in a meeting, at the gym, or available for a chat.
I can't even describe the convenience of being able to get in touch with friends via messaging. Let's face it, we can't all have the same phones. So it's nice to know we can still communicate and exchange our fun news and media items whenever we want. Just so you know, you can also share location, exchange contacts, use custom wallpaper and custom notification sounds, type in landscape mode, get message time stamps and so much more with this one versatile app. Try WhatsApp Messenger with all its cool extras to keep in touch with the ones you care about the most.
