WhatsApp – Download and Send Messages for Free


Created by two self-proclaimed geeks Jan Koum and Brian Acton, WhatsApp is an application that can be downloaded on any mobile device that can enable its users to experience SMS on a whole new level.

Inspired by what used to be the largest and most commonly used communication platform, the SMS, Koum and Acton decided to create an instant messaging application that will allow users to send messages from and to anywhere in the world at absolutely no cost. Today, WhatsApp is the biggest instant messaging application being used on smartphones, despite the competition with other instant messaging applications, such as Viber, Line, and several others.


Aside from being able to send as well as receive messages real time, users of the application can also share pictures, create group conversations, and share their location to selected WhatsApp users.
The makers of WhatsApp pride themselves in having created an application that offers its services for free and yet is a much better alternative to the paid SMS service. The user interface is not cluttered with advertisements, which have become a must for a number of other free applications, as a source of revenue. The simple and personal appearance of the application also lends to user comfort and ease. Users feel as if they are using the same SMS service, only much better.

If you love taking videos of memorable moments and you want to share them with people who are important to you, you can do so with WhatsApp as well. Simply send your video file just as you would a photo, and your friends and loved ones will get it right away. It’s so simple and easy.
