WhatsApp Messenger is Currently FREE in the App Store for the Holidays


It’s still Christmas Eve here on the Westcoast and there’s one little freebie worth mentioning: WhatsApp Messenger is currently a free in the App Store.

Normally $0.99, WhatsApp is probably the best cross-platform messaging app to allow iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Nokia smartphones to send free SMS messages with each other in real time. You can also send pictures, videos, audio clips, location, and have group chat.


WhatsApp periodically goes ‘free’ in the App Store (for undisclosed periods), with one the last times occurring in May of this year. Back in November, WhatsApp revealed it surpassed 1 billion messages sent in a single day:

Just how much is 1 billion messages? That is 41,666,667 messages an hour, 694,444 messages a minute, and 11,574 messages a second.

    Neither application nor company show up on iTunes store. They are either removed or something is broken. 🙁

    The description implies that your friends must have the app installed as well. This does Not sound like free SMSNit rather yet-another-proprietary protocol (like gtalk, yahoo, icq, or any of 100s of others).

    I will stick with MeeBo for now as it is a single app that nicely supports most other protocols

  • use to use this app all the time to talk to family and friends in other countries but now they all have iphones and have imessage
