WHATSAPP

WhatsApp Messenger is a smartphone messenger available for Windows Phone, Android, BlackBerry, iPhone, and Nokia phones. WhatsApp uses your 3G or WiFi (if available) to message with friends and family.

It allows you to  add audio and video clips to chats or chats group.WhatsApp is free to install but there's a 99 cent a year subscription after the first year. It works well with all networks in Zimbabwe,Telecel,Econet and Netone.

HOW TO START USING WHATSAPP

To get started with WhatsApp after installing, you'll need to enter your phone number, so if you have a device without cell service, you won't be able to use the app ,even when using whatsapp with your laptop,it has to have cell service, it mostly uses Wi-Fi and cellular data to function.I installed and tested the app on a smartphone phone. After you enter your number, WhatsApp sent your phone a text message. Happily, u will have to  tap on the link in the SMS message to enter it into the app. After this, you will be prompted to enter your name and choose a user picture. All your phone contacts will be added, and for each of these, you can invite to use the app with an automatically generated email.Whatsapp lets you record audio and video clips to include in your conversations! Kik does let you include a photo or video you shoot on the phone, but not audio alone.There‚Äôs no limit on the number of messages that can be sent, or the amount of characters that can be used.

INTERFACE

The app has only three swipe-by sections: Favorites, All, and Chats. WhatsApp automatically adds your Windows Phone Favorites.

TEXTING

WhatsApp's texting interface is clear and pleasant enough,you can upgrade it anytime you want,but its wallpaper cannot be changed. When you send a message, it shows up with a single check mark to show that it's been sent, and then when the contact actually reads the message, this mark turns into a double check symbol. It has option to include the usual selection of smilies and emoji in your chats if you want, and the message page shows you when the other person is typing at the top, not in the message area. WhatsApp's Group feature lets you do all this same stuff, but with multiple conversants.

PROS

One of the few benefits of WhatsApp is that you can use it to converse with your Android, Blackberry, and iPhone-using friends as well as with other Windows Phone users.
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.Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, pictures, audio notes, and video messages.

CONS

Requires phone number for account. Tied to a single phone. Shows contacts that aren't available on the service. Overly difficult to connect with other users who doesnt have whatsapp installed on their phone.

Generally it's less than Viber and far less than Skype
