WhatsApp is the number one messaging app which is there for most of the smartphone platforms for free. It is not available for most of the tablets like Nexus 7 and neither had it got official PC version like other apps but still it got large user base.
The main reason behind the popularity of the WhatsApp is that it focuses simply on being a true messaging app rather than any other thing. These days most of the messaging apps offer free voice and video calling along with some extra features but WhatsApp still sticks to the basic i.e. being a true messaging app.
It got a very elegant and very simple user interface. Even on the BlackBerry platform, the UI remain the same like on iOS or Android or on any other platform. Logos and icons look same and the complete user interface is very simple to understand. This helps in start using of it straight after installing.
It allows users to send unlimited free text messages over their Data pack or Wi-Fi network. They don’t need to recharge for messaging packs and can save a lot on monthly phone bill. The messages can be sent only to the WhatsApp users. Every message is delivered instantly and many details are provided like delivery and sent time and status. This is another prime feature of WhatsApp which is also there for the BlackBerry phones.
Apart from simple text messages, users can share photos (instantly either by snapping or uploading from file manager), videos, voice notes, locations and few other things. This particular feature increases the user experience further and allows users to do lot more than simple talking or chatting. Users can save on phone bills by sending voice notes and videos for free.
Groups of friends can be created and users can add their friends (max 50 in a single group) to keep the community of school or college or work on going. There is no registration required to start using, it uses your phone number to create the profile and then it’s always logged in. All your friends using WhatsApp will be added to contacts automatically.
