The only real criticism that I had once heard of an iPhone was the lack of chatting ability like Blackberry Messenger. Valid concern, but not a real one. Enter WhatsApp, a cross-platform application that allows everyone to chat using “a data plan” no matter which smart phone device you are using, brilliant! Whats more is the push technology that allows instant messages, from anywhere in the world.
On a recent trip through Asia, I linked my phone to the free wireless in my hotel and then downloaded videos of my kids getting their MMA belt promotion. Added to the fact that I can be in contact with my husband without paying per text message. (On Canadian plans it can be very spendy.)
To all my family and friends, please get this app for your smart phone so we can start chatting!
