Okay but could be better
I was enjoying using the Desktop version of this app, but your most recent update is not working. It just hangs and doesn't load, and my app store is perpetually showing me that I have one update that can't be installed. I tried deleting WhatsApp thinking I could reinstall the app and start from scratch, but that's not working either. It still shows an update and now I can't reinstall it on my MacBook and I can't update it either cause there's nothing on my computer to update. Hope you can fix this problem soon.
UPDATE: I no longer see an "Update" notification on the app page, now I see an install icon, but the app won't install. It just hangs. When are you going to fix this? Your app pushes out more updates than any other app on my computer, and I don't see substantive differences from update to update.
Also, why not make it possible to videochat from the computer with your app. That would be a great feature.
Great start, but needs improvement
I love using WhatsApp on my iPhone and like the idea of being able to use the desktop app as well. The only real gripe I have is that the desktop app does not recognize keyboard text shortcuts, nor does it allow you to type seamlessly in another language. In my case, I use WhatsApp a lot to talk to friends and family in Mexico and Spain—in Spanish. The app does not recognize that I am typing in Spanish and marks all words as mis-spelled and underlines them in red. Further, it does not do any auto-correct or suggested text features. A big request I would have is to incorporate the languages / multi-language abilities that other Mac developers (and Apple) put into their apps. If the app were improved with this upgrade, I would give this app 5 stars!
Very solid desktop client
This app integrates surprisingly well with the mobile app, considering that WhatsApp is end-to-end encrypted. Despite fetching all messages from the phone, it has no lag and seems always reliable in making sure that the message is delivery correctly, even under poor network conditions.
Unlike the WeChat client, the WhatsApp client is even able to load history, in spite of the fact that it is coming from one's own phone rather than a company server. It's also able to send stickers. The user interface is a very consistent experience with the mobile app, and I find it much easier to use than any other client.
