WhatsApp Messenger is widely known to be the go-to solution for those who are looking to have a solid instant messaging app. The main draw of WhatsApp is that it is available for multiple platforms including iOS, Android, Symbian, BlackBerry, and Windows Phone. With the use of push notifications, WhatsApp can help you stay connected with friends and family, instantly. Mobile carriers can really get on your nerves with their hidden costs charged when sending text and multimedia messages. So if you don't want to deal with any of that, download WhatsApp for your mobile device. And good news for iOS users because WhatsApp for iOS 6 and iPhone 5 is now available.
When iOS 6 was released, it is understandable that some apps won't be optimized for the new mobile operating system right off the bat. This is also true when the iPhone 5 was released, there were apps that just don't work that well with the new iPhone. One such app was WhatsApp. Users of the app that updated to iOS 6 or got the iPhone 5 (which natively includes iOS 6) are having problems with WhatsApp such as unable to access the contacts or the app won't send/receive images while on 3G. It is a good thing that the developers have been actively working on optimizing the app for newer systems and devices. And now, WhatsApp for iOS 6 and iPhone 5 is now available via App Store.
The newest version is Version 2.8.6 which mostly an update to optimize WhatsApp for iOS 6 and iPhone 5. Now that WhatsApp Messenger has been updated for the iPhone 5, it will finally take advantage of the new iPhone's 4-inch Retina Display. Now, you don't have to deal with the eye-sore of an app which runs scaled on the iPhone 5 screen. On top of that, WhatApp should work a lot better with iOS 6 and it is safe to say that the issues that were mentioned above should not exist anymore. For just $0.99, you are definitely getting the bang for your buck.
For the uninitiated, here are some of the most notable features of WhatsApp:
