Customer Reviews


There isn’t an app out there that’s comparable to What’s App. Of course it has some glitches beecause nothing is perfect, but this App is about as close as it comes. The ease of connection, and the easy to use features is what makes it popular. Other network apps with phone, video, texting capabilites cannot hold a candle to What’s App. I am a publisher, and I travel around the world. I needed a constant unchanging medium that allows me to stay in touch with everybody I need to be in contract with sans costing an arm and a leg to operate. What’s App solves this problem no matter where I am in the world as long as I have Internet, and that is just about everywhere.

One of it’s geratest features is the peace of mind to know that your conversations are private and impregnable because of the superior encryption technique the App employs. I am not a techie, but I know when I am comfortable, and that means a lot. I also love the reliability of being able to stay in touch with not only my aasociates but also my family. From the jungles of Brazil to 35,000 feet in the air, What’s App is reliable.

I have not been paid to write this review. I write it because a) I’m a writer and b) I love the App. That’s the bottom line.

It is Just OK

This could be a great app but the developers are content with just Ok. The developers are lazy and have no vision. so for all of you who say what a great app then you are in the same catefory.
Just because something kinda does what it says it can do it does not mean it is great, wow, it is the best, incredible. Yea for some of you. The app needs work and it needs the capability of not cutting off unless the phone is connected. Also it has so many glitches it is not even funny. Well you ask for my review and I just give it to you. I use the app because it is easier to chat using a keyborad but it is not what all of you say it is. Well for the content crowd yea what a great app wow, fantastic. BS! using a keyboard it is much easier than using the phone to type. But there are way too many issues which can be resolved.

Super useful

I am using WhatsApp all the time to communicate with friends in Italy. They use it all the time and it is great when I am there and there is Wi-Fi, which is almost all the time. Since it works wherever there is Wi-Fi, I am using it all over the world and don’t have to fuss with internaltion phone lines and everyone always knows how to call me. The only negative I’ve found it the voice service in Italy works almost as clearly as a cellphone, but not in the U.S. Unfortunately sometime in the U.S. the calls are quite muddy and inconsistent. Otherwise it is a miracle!
