“Because sms is so 2008”, thats the phrase on the official facebook page of the Whatsapp!, application I’ve been using for over a month now & I’ve come to love.
Whatsapp is a smartphone messaging application which is used to send instant messages and multimedia content(hopefully, in the next nokia beta update) between Blackberry’s, iPhones, Symbian OS devices and Android phones.
Its given out as a free (1-year) trial download(though its really cheap after that).
On installation of the application, it requests for your phone number & sends a message to it to verify (meaning the sim in the phone you install with must have airtime for 1 sms and also have the number you input.)
After that, it synchronises your contacts and shows you all your friends who have d application installed.
You can start chatting immediately with them.
I must say, compared to other versions, the Nokia edition is limited(for now) but it still serves its purpose as I’ve noticed I hardly send sms nowadays.
Whatsapp is integrated into your phone and starts up once you get a message (even if you’ve exited the application) – a feature I really value since I get my messages instantly and also I dont have to always find the app and login to use it.
It has disadvantages though,
Its connected to the internet 24/7 so this could really be a drain on your airtime if you aren’t subscribed to a data plan and also on your battery if you use 3g or WiFi to connect.
Apart from that, its really lovely and I actually “force-install” it for my friends with compatible phones.
You can get it for your phone by pointing your browser to www.whatsapp.com/dl.
