Ratings and Reviews
Add a search box to the stickers
I enjoy using my WhatsApp very much as we can message each other anywhere and anytime we want if you have your phone with you. You can even have a GIF sticker party with your friends if you want even if you live at the other side of the world. But the problem is, when I want to find some stickers, i need to take a long time to find it.
So I suggest you add a search box to try stickers so that when we want to use stickers, we can just search them and will not take a long time to find it. I hope you listen to my suggestion because I would make things so much easier. The second thing, there are hackers in WhatsApp. Even though you say that WhatsApp security is really good, sometimes I doubt it’s true. (No offence) So my suggestion is you try to find a way to increase the level of WhatsApp security. If can’t, that’s fine. Also, thank you for creating this wonderful app, to allow friends from all over the wall to communicate with each other. 😄

I have updated IOS 11.2.2 two days ago and from then my messages are not sync properly.
I get notification or an alert that I have a received a message >> then I go folder I can see symbol on WhatsApp icon that I have received it >> then I select the app but inside no new message >> immediately I can see app got hung for few seconds then it will start sync the message after 10 seconds..
Here I have to wait for minimum 5 to 10 seconds.. if I didn’t see WhatsApp message for longer time then the hangs time bit more.
I have restarted twice the iphone but still I face the same problem. Please help to check and fix it ASAP.
