Looks like a basic reskin. I'd hoped for a little more imagination from them, mainly following Apple's lead by using the main icon colour throughout the app itself.

It looks very bland but I'll take it over the iOS 6 version right now.

I wasn't expecting much from them but it's a bit worse than I could have imagined. Way too bland!

Yeah, I've read posts on here from people saying their Android app is superb compared to the iOS version. There was a concept on here done by a member and it was superb.

Still, any idea when we can expect this update?

Like someone said; when iOS 8 is about to be released. Lol.

Really? How much are they price gauging you for running an international, cross platform messaging service?

$1 per year...!!! :p :p

But it's lifetime free for people who bought the app...

Did I say gauging? Hard to comprehend why some people put words into others mouths. Not sure what benefit they get from this archaic activity.

I like Whatsapp and again, I say I hope it's outstanding since it's now a pay service otherwise people will migrate to platforms.

It's a great great app that I wouldn't trade for any other instant messaging solution other than iMessage but I too have lots of friends on android...

However we can't deny that this guys can't design beautiful apps for ****, it looks so bland, so tasteless..

Looks boring and dull, but as someone said, I'll take it anytime compared to the current one

They surely take their time :|

They haven't even released an update to fix the issues with the current app on iOS 7.

What's wrong with it? These days my notifications are delayed and sometimes don't even show up so I go in the app and see people have texted me but I didn't get a notification.
