Share your status with WhatsApp – A free BlackBerry app UPDATE

Often times you have a contact in your Address Book and you aren’t sure whether it’s a good time to call them. With WhatsApp, the question “What’s up” gets answered before you decide, so you know if it’s a good time.

Ideally, this system would be built into the BlackBerry Address Book, but for now we have a free app that works with others who have also downloaded the app. The app only gets better as more people use it, so consider using the “Tell a Friend” feature. It’s free so why not?

Download WhatsApp for free OTA by visiting http://www.whatsapp.com/bb/ from your BlackBerry Browser.

UPDATE: App World is having some issues today, but users can download from GetJar and there shouldn’t be any problem.

    Yet another status to maintain…

    we get that question a lot. the “how is this different from twitter” question. let me ask you this: would you ever use twitter for things such as

    - “in meetings all day, call me after 6pm”
    - “batter is low, call my office @ 408-555-1212″
    - “out of the country for a week, you can reach me on my paris number”

    i think twitter is great (hey, how else would you know what ashton kutcher is eating for breakfast;), but the idea behind our app is different from twitter… while twitter is more like a group chat, whatsapp is more of a status indicator.
