Definitely worth it - This app is incredible for anyone who has a Mac and uses What’sApp! It is pretty seamless and responsive and syncs well with your phone. It even has a feature to tell you on your computer if you phone is dying and needs to be charged with it linked to the same Wi-Fi. For people like me who would prefer to type on a full keyboard, this is a must have.

Review by Amanwithphone

a total fial. - So I bought this to use on my laptop when I cant use my phone or my phone isnt available; mostly at work and such. Used it for a few days and it was going great. I forgot my phones charger, and all of a sudden this is useless when my phone is dead. What a total bummer. I had such high hopes. If my phone cant get network connection, the app doesnt work. I get how whatsapp verifies and stuff. Atleast let this app have some type of grace period. For example it checks for the phone once a day or evry few days. just because my phone is dead, i cant use whats app. Might as well just have used the free whats app on the phone instead of getting this app. epic fail.

very well - It’d be nice if the preview of the picture was displayed larger by default, and if not that, have the ability to zoom in on the pic without downloading it. Other than that, teriffic app overall

Review by ConchyKP317

THE BEST SOCIAL APP EVER - 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. Sincerely, Dr. Sherm Smith, Heritage Builders Publishing

Love my What’s App - I have a child and grandchild in Europe plus friends in Canada and the Caribbean. WA is a must have and I keep getting many of my friends to use it. Love the groups, love the phone feature. Thanks for this useful application..

Requires a Smartphone - Does nothing unless you have a smartphone. They said it is under important but nothing is said about a smartphone. Useless
