Ratings and Reviews
Making it Better
I love the app been using it since they debut and dominating the cross platform messaging that de-throne the blackberry messenger and the blackberry phone across the Americans now a few added features that a lot of people would gladly say yes to is  Adding more pin chats instead of just 3 pins let’s have 5-10 pins I believe that would be a fair number of chats to add to the top.  Implement a pinned topic or have a topic option in groups. It’s so annoying to be changing the name of the group to the topic when you could open the group and the topic is pinned at the top let the admin have the option of turning it on or off. Just emailing the group name is changed to the topic and you wondering who added you to a group you don’t want to be in. Other than that I love the app 5 stars hope the developer take these into consideration.
Simply indispensable, but recently problematic
WhatsApp is a very great app that has become an integral part of many lives, but recently I've been having some trouble with it on my iPhone X. It freezes once I open it and no matter how long I wait for, it doesn't unfreeze. Force quitting the app, restarting my phone of powering the phone off then putting it back on after some time doesn't help. I sometimes have a few seconds after relaunching it to move around before it freezes again and that helped me resolve it the first time it happened by deleting over 40 GB of media from chats. Now it's started freezing on launch again and I can't even successfully delete any media from my WhatsApp to try to fix it. I have a lit of free space on my phone by the way, so I'm not sure what the cause is. It happens so suddenly. One moment I'm using it, the next moment, it won't work no matter what. I still see the notifications from messages coming in, but can't do anything about them.
Also, many times I can't share media to WhatsApp from others apps. I can share to other apps such as Mail, Evernote, Twitter, but sharing to WhatsApp fails a lot.
App got worse after no choice then having to update
What happened to what’s app after the update. It got worse. What about being able to delete what you sent on both sides nit just from my chat, it used to not any more! You said there were improvements? Not at all! Improvements doesn’t mean to take away what worked well for many. improvements is enhancing adding not removing what works. What a disappointment this app fell short! Many feel the same! Security? That probably won’t be secure either anymore! Let’s see what will happen going forward with all the breaches and the unsecured and less encryption . I can go on and on. If you say you will improve, then do as you promise!
