WhatsApp (TMA Review), one of the most popular messenger apps for the iPhone, has dropped in price to free (previously $0.99). For those of you not familiar, here’s a quick rundown courtesy of iTunes:
WhatsApp messenger is a cross platform smartphone messenger currently available for iPhone, Android, BlackBerry and Nokia phones. The application utilizes push notifications to instantly get messages from friends, colleagues and family. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, pictures, audio notes, and video messages at no cost. All features are included without the need for extra in-application purchases.
Aside from the features and the fact that it doesn’t cost you a dime to send/receive messages, the best part about the app is that a good number of iOS users are already on it; in fact, you’d be surprised at how many of your friends are whatsappin’ once you get set up (which takes a minute or so). No word on how long the freebie will last until, so be sure to grab it while the deal’s still on.
