WhatsApp Messenger review
WhatsApp Messenger is a free instant messaging application developed by Facebook and perhaps for this reason as well, it is very popular. You can send a text, video, or voice message and get the response instantly. Group messaging is also possible.
Formal Design 10/10
The architecture of the app is widely discussed. Its chat system is rather scalable. In addition, there are nonfunctional requirements related to the image sharing and message ordering, for instance. The interface is user-friendly suiting almost any skills level. Navigation is extremely simple due to the clear menu.
The design is eye-pleasing with white backgrounds, blue and grey content. It is really well-done with a focus on a single purpose – communication without much fun and with quite little emotions. Add great sound and smooth operation.
Packed with Features 10/10
The app is convenient providing a wide and diverse functionality. In addition to the key option – sending and receiving the content of various formats, you will be able to apply various filters, effects, attach documents, and GIFs. Thus, your message will be detailed and emotional. You can send it to a single person from your contact list or to all people in it.
When a receiver opens a message, you will get a notification about this action. If you do not want to be disturbed by chatting, you can activate I’m Busy note and replace it with Available note when you are ready to communicate. You are allowed to delete an annoying contact or just block any account temporarily.
Also, the app allows making international calls without fees but in accordance with existing provider’s data plans.
Unlimited Pleasure 10/10
Though the app does not have any educational value and does not allow video chatting, it is still very useful. It will connect you with your friends instantly using push notifications with an unlimited amount of messages. If you want to start communication, you are to tap a contact. If you are going to send the message to a group, you are welcome. If a group chatting is on, you can join tapping any name of the participator.
The developer guarantees the safety of the app. The transmitted content is encrypted but you should know that Facebook can see your messages. You can share Live Location. If you have friends and family members living in other cities or countries, this application will help you to keep in touch without any additional payments. The no-fee system of the app makes its usage very appealing.
I can say that the app is reliable and operates without failures. You will download it for a couple of minutes and navigate easily. This quite mature messaging service is safe providing end-to-end encryption and that is a cool addition to its functionality.
