Re: WhatsApp is available..

@martin, I guess they leverage the local contact app so as not to duplicate two lists exactly the same on the device. And it also means that it isn't in the 'cloud' either... :smileyhappy:

I prefer to keep my contacts separated for each program and use, people I chat with are not those I will call or e-mail

Re: WhatsApp is available..

Fair enough. :smileyhappy:

My only gripe is no hub integration.. I would have liked to see that leveraged just like Facebook, Twitter, etc... especially after the wait. :smileyhappy:

Re: WhatsApp is available..

Dear Drewread

 

I have only just got a reply from What'sApp yesterday and they said that they are working on it and it has not been produced as yet.

 

I just tried your link and am getting the error page that the item is not available still.

 

What'sApp will work at sorting it out.

 

I have lots of important apps including ones I have paid for and most of them are not compatible.

Barclays Mobile, Pinget, Lloydes Bank, SnapShot, Skype, DocsToGoPDF, PFD Creator, RecycleBinContacts To Excel - Professional Edition - Backup And Rest, Email Spam Filter Pro - Advanced Spam Filter app for Black,Easy Smiley Pack Pro Upgrade,  Units of Measurement Professional, Thermometer - The Accurate Room Thermometer.

 

Just to list just a few

 

:Cool2:

I was just going to ask the same thing, tried searching for it on Blackberry World, but none of the search results came up with the app. Tried typing the enter URL into my browser and finding it that way, it took me to Blackberry World to the app page, but there was no way to download it and was advised at the top of my screen that the app is 'unavailable for your device'.

 

Is this a recent issue that cropped up or am I missing something?

Re: WhatsApp is available..

The APIs required (for any third party app) are not yet released by BlackBerry for using the Hub integration.

 

Perhaps WhatsApp will be updated if and when that occurs. But for now, it won't be real soon.

Re: WhatsApp is available..

According to the CrackBerry press release here: "The app is rolling out over the next few hours, so if you don't see it available for your device just yet - check back in a bit."

 

So it may not yet be available in your area. Feel free to Tweet the developers and ask them when it will be in your area, or use the 'contact developer' link in appworld to get ahold of them and ask.

 

Some are suggesting it may be related to the OS version you currently have on your phone, that is unconfirmed so be sure to ask about that too. :smileyhappy:

 

It is definately running on mine though:

Interesting, I wonder how Twitter got the rights to use those APIs... From the voices on the net one would think that WhatsApp probably has the clout to get in there too..

 

Oh well, we wait then for the app to become 'useful' :smileyhappy:

Re: WhatsApp is available..

Twitter was developed with internal RIM assistance. Quite different.

 

I would ask that you not start this questioning my every statement, again. That game has been played out.
