Whatsapp is a cross-platform instant messaging app

THE VERDICT

WhatsApp is the largest instant messaging app for mobile devices. It was acquired by Facebook for an insulting amount of money and its users base keeps growing everyday at a frantic pace. A communication tool is worth as long as most of the people agree on using it, and that's precisely the added-value of WhatsApp.

WhatsApp allows you to send text messages, media files (photos, videos, sound clips), links, contact vCards and location. WhatsApp's most expected feature - VoIP Calls - is already available. You can now call your WhatsApp contacts for free, directly from the app.

THE PROS

Those of your phonebook contacts who have WhatsApp installed will show up automatically on your WhatsApp contact list. You can open a chat with them, create a group chat or call a single contact (multi-call not yet available). New messages will be automatically pushed to your notification drawer unless you "mute" the conversation (which you can do for a given period). In addition, you can edit your profile (status and photo) and check others' profile.

WhatsApp is set in a neat and user-friendly interface. One of the most well-designed and intuitive IM mobile apps.

THE CONS

WhatsApp is massively used worldwide. However that doesn't mean it excels in all fields. We are missing integrated third-party apps within WhatsApp, group calls, activity feed and self-destructing messages. Even though messages are now encrypted, there's still room for improvement regarding security.
