WhatsApp Messenger

As a cross-platform mobile messaging app, WhatsApp Messenger allows users to exchange messages on cell phones quickly and conveniently. Besides letting users chat for free with people who install the app, it also offers some useful extra features to add fun to text messaging.

By using phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi), WhatsApp Messenger displays chats in small text bubbles, shows a time stamp for each message, notifies users whether a text has been viewed or not by the recipient, and enables you to message, call and video friends and family. Generally speaking, WhatsApp Messenger needs no special introduction as the most popular instant messaging service, which now owns over 800 million users and boasts apps for Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, and more rarified platforms like Symbian.

Exchange contacts, Share locations, set different wallpapers, change notification sounds, broadcast messages to multiple contacts at once, email chat history, and more.

CONS
