Re: Whatsapp

I've tried sideloading Whatsapp and it doesn't work! The app loads up perfectly but when you need to receive the SMS verification it won't work. If you find otherwise let me know!

Re: Whatsapp

I actually got it working after multiple attempts! However my contacts all show as numbers...not much we can do about that as the Android port has no access to the blackberry address book. Unless there is a way to fill up the Android address book? Anyway we don't have much longer to wait for a native app :smileyhappy:
