Ratings and Reviews
Overall A very good messaging app that I use a lot.
Whatsap certainly has had its trials and tribulations, but from what I’ve seen so far, only access ability stuff that needed doing is working very well now, I can access a lot more stuff using voice-over than I used to be able to, and I always believe that as long as the developers listen to us, the customers and users, what ever you want to call us these days, Service users, and users, clients, patrons, whatever! then something is working the way it should! I just have one final thing to say, keep up the good work! Keep improving this program, and you make a lot of people very very happy and keep all our communication needs in check! I talk to people around the world with this program, and I really enjoy using WhatsApp, sometimes, it’s the only thing that I can really get my hands on to use, when everything else is broken! So I’m super excited about that! It’s really good times. Anyway, thanks for keeping this going, keep up the good work, and making WhatsApp better!
Good, but always ways to improve!
I personally love this app so much! It has so much capability-calling and texting privately, editing your own profile to make it look stylish, and creating your favourite groups to chat and text with multiple people at one go. The effort put into this app can be easily seen; no wonder it is so popular! It is so useful for contacting people for important purposes as well, which I love because it makes this informal app also seem formal as well, since you can literally text anyone!
The only aspect of this app that I find weird is that there is a time limit to how long you have to delete a message so that no one can see it again. Let’s say you sent a post that you didn’t want people to see after some time, you wouldn’t be able to delete it for everyone which I find weird since it’s my message so shouldn’t I have the right to delete it whenever I wish? If I don’t want people to see something I posted and I want to delete it then I shouldn’t have a maximum of only a few minutes to delete it for everyone, I should instead have no time limit whatsoever for deleting a certain post. Anyway this was my only problem with this app and I think that this can easily be fixed. Thanks for reading and I recommend you download this app!
Works well, fairly intuitive. Only problem I’ve had is a pretty significant time delay (can be upwards of two hours) between sending a message to a person in a different country and that message being received.
I often use WhatsApp to message friends in Italy, but, have noticed that my messages (on average) take a couple of hours to deliver, with the occasional extreme case of my messages taking a couple days to deliver. I assume this problem is due to a culmination of slow broadband/poor mobile data connection (which is a common problem where I live), a difficulty in data package transfer and (assumable) incompatibilities with similar networks in Italy.
Ultimately, it’s a pretty decent app, and, it’s not the end of the world in regards to the slow message delivery speed, as I appreciate that nothing is ever instantaneous, especially when it comes to tech and wireless information transfer. But, it can be frustrating when mid conversation your messages stop delivering, and you have to text the person normally to explain that you “aren’t trying to be rude” and that you “are trying to reply to their messages”, defeating the perceived purpose of the app.
