great app but one flaw
I use the app for a couple of month and really like it. It’s easy to use and allows you to use your computer keyboard to write whatsapp messages instead of typing on the tiny phone keyboard. I actually prefer using whatsapp in this way instead of using it on my phone. Connecting it to your phone is pretty easy and once the connection is established it’s pretty reliable and easy to reconnect in case it’s needed.
However, since the last update I have one major problem. There’s no way to silence the app on my mac!!! Even when disabling the “play sound for notification” in my notification settings in the systems preferences the app still makes “blip” whenever I get a message. This makes it really annoying when watching a movie or a show while the app is running in the background. Please, please, please dear developers, fix this issue! It was working just fine in the previous version…
Also, I cannot send pictures using the FreeChat app as the drag-and-drop option just wouldn’t work. But I can live without this option or just use my phone for sending pics.
But please, fix the notification issue… thanks!
Vrs 1.1.2 Update
This is a good front-end for WhatsApp. I use this when I want a “real” computer/keyboard, rather than my phone, to type a message. I can still send pictures in addition to text messages, which is cool. They make sure that your phone is nearby (it always is) and it easily gets on the same session by putting up a QR-code that you scan with the phone’s camera, to sync them up initially, which makes it easy to do. Nice implementation all around! Where WhatsApp is really helpful is when people, (especiallly with varying phone brands) are in different countries. That’s when the app is quite cool. Regular SMS messages don’t always work, or if they do, your carrier might charge more to send/receive them, but not so with WhatsApp.
I’m enjoying free chat a lot! I have it on my phone. I wish I Could also get it on my tablet but so far I can’t find the wayto do that; that way, I could have it across all my devises; but you can’t have everything can ya! Free chat is a good way to send my looong videos and voicememo’s that won’t fit on email. When I’m going to send anything to a friend, the first thing I ask them is “do you have free chat?” I don’t do facebook, instagram, tweeter or any of those social media’s. So, free chat is right up my ally.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
