WhatsApp Messenger

Overall Rating:

Countless smartphone apps exist for people to keep in touch but none as popular as WhatsApp. This messenger app is growing popularity in both iOS and Android at a global scale. This app has end-to-end encryption, very easy sign up and practically eliminates texting cell phone plans.

Unlike other messenger apps, WhatsApp does not require a user to create an account. Instead, you enter your phone number and verify it with a text message. Once this process is complete, the app syncs with your contact list; this allows you to chat with other friends who have the app. WhatsApp also has a support team that helps end-users with technical issues during the installation or product usage.
