they have expressed through their official twitter account that Apple removed it because a new version is coming... and waiting for approval maybe the current version has a major flaw apple found and just axed it while the new one gets approved

Greedy apple shows its face again.

"You're competing with us on iMessage, and I'm going to take your app down"

Buy a vowel...

Whatsapp pulled the app themselves because the current version has a security flaw. The update is going thru the standard approval process now.

It's been a long time since the iOS version had an update. Looking forward to it.

seems the story is something else. There are so many useless apps on the app store that people buy them and later they find out that they have been cheated as the apps are not working the same way they are advertised. Why doesnt apple remove those apps?

New version of WhatsApp 2.7.0 released in the Irish App Store.

Comes through as an update if you have it installed already, not coming up on the search function yet.
