    From their Twitter: WhatsApp Inc. (WhatsAppInc) on Twitter

    When you download it, it will still see a new version. Perhaps they don't want to update exclusively from the market. It can also be moved to SD now I noticed.

    Sounds good, I'll give it a whirl.

    Question, it says "free for the first year," how much does it cost after said year?

    I'm pretty sure its only for android 2.2.

    I keep getting errors saying that its not compatible with my 3rd party task manager. I'm not sure what that means, but it won't work for me. It will install fine, just won't work. I've tried on stock android launcher, touchwiz3.0 and Launcher Pro.

    It's on my Fascinate (2.1) and while I've not chatted yet it hasn't given me any issues.

    Do you have a task killer running? That might be your problem, not your launcher.

    Uninstall it. WhatsApp doesn't play nice with task killers. Nothing plays nice with task killers really.

    In other words. It's like BBM (Blackberry Messenger). Except it's multi-platform. BB folks cannot use BBM to talk to you, they must also have it.

    On BB it's free (or so i think).
    On Android it's free for the first year.
    On iPhone it's 99cents a year.
    On Symbian it's free as it's still Beta.

    i see no reason to switch over to this from Gtalk.

    -whatsapp cannot be turned off
    -has an indicator whether the message you sent has been read or not, which in my opinion is a negative.
    - one more list of contacts, in a phone that moves to consolidate contact lists.
    -gtalk is free

    I get it. For sending video and pics, and chatting its abundant cantankerous platform, and free. You can allotment your area in google maps, accepting admonition to and from. It's chat, email and sms formed into one acceptable app. My friends would often just send vids of where we were at etc and what we were doing. Pictures tell a 1000 words. Yes they accept to install it, and back you do it compares your contacts account with their registered database and adds any matches to your whatsapp acquaintance list. works a charm.
