    Emailed WhatsAPP devs/support, and they're working on an update.

    Should be out very soon. No ETA though.

    I hope so too... it's *bugging* the hell outta me too... Can't believe WhatsApp is THAT important, esp. now that it isn't working with iOS 8 !! :eek:

    Yep me too.. Its extremely annoying. I'm trying to build an app for iOS8 with the new camera functions, but i've only got my daily iPhone 5s to test with...

    All my colleagues and most of my friends use whatsapp so its pretty importend.. Hope they fix it this week :)

    Seems like Whatsapp has become the app that most people are bothered about

    Whatsapp seems to work for me, providing I start all new conversations with peeps.

    I read in one of the threads that if you -

    1) Uninstall WhatsApp
    2) Goto Settings - iCloud - Manage Backups, turn off and delete WhatsApp backup
    3) Re-install and verify WhatsApp, it's working for some...

    Gonna take a stab at this once I get a chance.

    This app was sold for $19Billion to Facebook. There should be absolutely no surprise at how essential it is.

    Then wait a bit for the update..

    I have been using the app, w/o the update, by clearing my chats and disabling icloud backup. No crashes yet!

    Well, it is that or you don't you use iOS 8 until it is fixed.

    Okay so... it's not quite as stable as I had initially thought. :(

    It crashes randomly, the worst being when you're typing a response and the app will freeze for 1-2 seconds and crash.

    Other times, it works just as it should...

    Strange, but def. far from being completely stable at this point!
