Remember my post about Whatsapp Messenger a while ago?
Whatsapp Messenger which is very famous among iPhone and Blackberry users, has now expanded their service to the Symbian platform! It works like BBM on Blackberrys whereby users can chat among each other (now with people on other platforms) for free! Messages are sent using wifi/3G.
It’s an ALWAYS ON application like SMS. You don’t need to sign in to anything at all. Messages just comes like how you receive SMS.
The download link for Symbian devices is up on their site. Click to http://www.whatsapp.com/download/ and click on Nokia.
Here’s how the interface looks like.
For your information, currently Symbian users can only send text to friends. Transfer of images, audio and location is only available for iPhone and Blackberry (transfer images only).
Once installed, the app will look for other Whatsapp users from your phonebook and display them in the “favourites” list in your Whatsapp. You can then chat with them.
- If you want to chat with your friend, make sure you have their phone numbers saved in your phonebook or else they will not appear in your favourite list.
- The app does not quit/close. It stays ON forever. This means it will keep consuming data (wifi/3G) so make sure you have unlimited data package or it will cost you a bomb.
Go download WHATSAPP for Symbian now! Remember to tell your Nokia, iPhone and Blackberry friends about this app so we don’t need to SMS one another anymore!Follow me on Twitter for more updates! View my personal blog too!
