Holiday season is well and truly here and in the spirit of giving, the makers of the amazingly popular WhatsApp Messenger have decided that they will give their app away for free to all those on iOS. So, in case you are using an iPhone and have not yet bought the app or if you have just bought your iPhone 5, then you can now simply download it for free from the Apple App Store. The app has switched over from the $0.99 category to the free tag and considering how useful and handy this cross-platform messaging app is, you definitely should give it a shot, if you have not already.
Remember that this is the app that topped the Apple App Store charts as the second most successful paid app in 2012 behind Angry Birds Space and that should tell you how this is simply a must have. WhatsApp is ad-free and hence you will not have to deal with annoying pop-ups and since it is a cross-platform messaging service, you can keep in touch with all those buddies using their Android mobiles as well for free.
The Android version of WhatsApp has always remained free for download, but after a 12 month period a fee of $0.99/year kicks in. For Apple users there has been no fee and with the latest offer, it seems like the app is as good as completely free. But, considering this is a limited time deal, you better get in on it before it is marked back up to the good old $0.99.
