What’s up? Smartphones have well and truly dragged me up to date with most of the world tech wise. I’m a big fan of them after a few years of them making my life that little bit easier. Not to say that I can’t go without it, but I can at least see the plus sides of some of the things these ... Read review

Multimedia on the cheap Review with images

Advantagesfree/cheap, picture messaging, group chats, check a messages status

Disadvantagespossibly have to pay after 1 year, wi-fi sometimes causes issues.

"...to others who also have whatsapp installed. Instead of using your text message allowance or call allowance it uses your data allowance, but the amount it uses is minimal. This means you can send pictures to people for free rather than having to pay for picture messaging. Finding it in the Google Play store is easy: type “whatsapp messenger” into the search bar and it’ll be first on the list. The icon is a little green speech bubble with a telephone ..." Read review

SMS + MSN X BBM Review with images

AdvantagesSaves money, cheap to download, user friendly, intuitive

DisadvantagesSome may think it's unnecessary

"...we’re almost spoilt for choice. WhatsApp (see what they did there?), is another treat for us to keep in touch with our friends and family at our own convenience - and the cost of this? A mere 59p. ==Ladies and Gentlemen, may I introduce you to the wonderful world of WhatsApp…== WhatsApp is so much more than meets the eye; it isn’t just an iPhone app, oh no, the creators of this app wanted to become a bit more ‘universal’ and break stereotype, therefore, ..."

Free Messages For All!

AdvantagesFree messaging, international use

DisadvantagesCannot make free calls

"Whatsapp is a free application for sending free messages to other mobile phone users, making use of your internet connection. The first question anyone ever asks me when I tell them about it is "how much internet will it use?" Well, the answer to this is a little bit geeky, but it's probably a question a lot of people have no idea how to calculate. I will try and break it down as simply as possible: Each character is roughly 1 byte. There are 1024 ..." Read review

~ * So Much Better Than Texting * ~

AdvantagesFun!! Easy to use!


" What’s App is a Smartphone app. It is available for androids, Ios, Blackberries, Windows Phones to name but a few. It is only available on smart phones however, and so cannot be used on normal, old fashioned mobile phones. If you have a Smartphone then you will know all about all the various apps you can get. I actually came across this app by mistake…I was just looking for interesting apps for my new Smartphone when I came across this one and thought ..." Read review
