    I am so disappointed with WhatsApp! Most probably one of the most used messaging applications on the App Store is one of the last to update it software to support Iphone 6! :(:apple::D

    apple might be slow processing whatsapp updates because apple thinks iMessage should be the most used messaging app

    just my thought

    also apple is slow, I use an app that has a glitch, the developer already posted notes that its fixed and submitted to apple oct 17 and the update is still not showing in the app store

    I've given up on Whatsapp. Everyone I used to Whatsapp is on iMessage now.

    Worst service to ever appear on an IOS platform...

    Everyone had a HUGE hype about the launch for it, hilarious!

    Terrible! Annoys me so much. My circle of friends all use it, probably my most used app. It looks horrific on the 6 plus. They wont let uk app store users submit reviews on the app either! Not since 1st oct. I just cannot understand, with all facebooks money (they now own whatsapp) how they havent fixed it already. Does anybody notice a huge lag selecting a photo from your library then sending? Grrr

    LOL. I haven't used BBM in over a year. I remember when everyone was so excited when it came to iOS and Android. No one cares now.

    You ask this question every single day in the beta thread. Nobody knows, even us beta testers, you are just going to have to wait.

    I've already switched to Telegram, and convinced most of my friends to do so as well.

    Advantages in my book:

    - Not owned by freaking Facebook
    - Has clients for tablets and desktops as well, everything stays in sync
    - Private encrypted communication mode
    - Actually seems to have support and is being updated.

    It's been super-reliable in my experience, and the API is open so anybody can make a client for it. There are even web-based clients.

    In fact this seems to come closer to a cross-platform substitute for iMessage than anything else I've seen.

    Of course, the main issue is convincing the people you talk to into switching, but it was easy in my case once I pointed out the advantages, and the fact that WhatsApp hasn't been well-supported since Facebook bought it. Big company acquisitions ruin EVERYTHING.

    Everybody knows Telegram is 5 times better, just read the bigger thread.
    But not enough people use it unfortunately.

    Switched all my friends to Telegram. The desktop app is amazing. Syncs instantly with my phone. That's definitely the best part of Telegram for me.
