What’s The Hype About WhatsApp?

February 22nd, 2014 · No Comments · News, Reviews, Software

If you want to know what the deal is about WhatsApp, check out this review from CNET.com.  Nineteen billion dollars is quite a number to pay for an application so I wanted to know what the hype is about.  According to Whatsapp.com, “WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform mobile messaging app which allows you to exchange messages without having to pay for SMS.  WhatsApp Messenger is available for iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Phone and Nokia and yes, those phones can all message each other!”  I downloaded the app and I like that I can send audio files easily (”Honey, can you pick up milk on the way home”) instead of typing out the message.  You can also reveal your location to your message recipients if you like.  Check it out!
