WhatsApp

As South Africans we’re all familiar with MXit, BBM and 2go… to a lesser extent Nimbuzz. Now I’d like you to know what’s up with WhatsApp.

WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform mobile messenger that replaces SMS and works through the existing internet data plan of your device. WhatsApp is available for iPhone, BlackBerry, Android and Nokia Symbian60 phones. Because WhatsApp Messenger uses the same internet data plan that you use for email and web browsing, there is no cost to message and stay in touch with your friends.

Yes, another mobile application that allows you to send messages to your friends who also use the WhatsApp application on their mobile phones.

How is WhatsApp Messenger different from SMS?

SMS is an older messaging system with a limited functionality and high cost. WhatsApp Messenger aims to provide more at a lower cost. We are sure you and your friends will figure out the difference between SMS and WhatsApp Messenger very quickly.

Your Web AddiCT found out about this app from a guy standing in a queue with me while I was playing with my Android device. Unlike some other apps out there WhatsApp is available on Nokia, BlackBerry, Android and iPhone. Have you or do you use WhatsApp?

WhatsApp will remain free

You’ve probably received this message below from a few of your WhatsApp contacts. Don’t wory, it’s a hoax and WhatsApp have confirmed that it’ll remain free on their blog

WhatsApp is going to cost us money soon. The only way that it will stay free is if you are a frequent user i.e. you have at least 10 people you are chatting with. To become a frequent user send this message to 10 people who receive it (2 ticks) and your WhatsApp logo should turn Red to indicate a frequent user.

Please understand that this is a hoax and there is no truth to it.
