Latest Update Feedback
Dear Honorable Developers of this amazing platform,
Latest update send the performance of WA at my iPhone 7 to the last century in therms of speed of writing buttons reaction ( especially 123 button gets stuck and need to press 3x ) and the start up of the App or return to it gets now 2sec. Instead of 0sec in the past :(
Otherwise absolutely perfect, standard in the class of apps. 👍
Thank you for your feedback
It is OK but...
It is an OK app but iMessage is definitely better, the stickers in WhatsApp are dumb. Messages take much linger to send than on iMessage, Discord and many others. Another problem is that (this is just a theory) they put stuff up too late, every app on my phone uses dark mode, WhatsApp was late, they are still using the old widgets while others moved on a long long time ago. The app is owned by Facebook and they don’t want you to know that... I think because they made a specific creator account, which costs 100$ a month just for WhatsApp, DO NOT trust this app, just use something different and if you have to use WhatsApp go into settings and disable everything possible, as I said, it is owned by Facebook!
I truly love this app, its functionality & simplicity, however with the whole corona situation, Whatsapp has become a very frustrating place since now I have too many chats: classes, friends, family, teachers, study groups, everything joined together in one place makes it very tiring for me. Could it be possible to add in the future folders where you can organize family chats, work, studies? That way, I can relax reading my friend's messages without having to see all the messages from class piling up.
In any case, great app ✨
