    Got another update for Whatsapp today, seems to have fixed the long load time on previous update. Also appears to have fixed app crash when changing display picture. Not sure of any other changes though

    I've heard the large tile now shows the message. But I can't confirm, as nobody writes me messages at the moment ;)

    +1 definitely look VERY native. Glad to see them at least taking UI seriously, if not functionality at core!

    Taking photos now does not crash the app. Previously 2.9.2, crashes after taking a photo to attach to the chat.

    They still need to let us send audio/video both new ones and the ones saved on phone, leave the audio API alone and eventually show less battery hogging behaviour! So yes, it's pretty but functionality wise, a lot more work needed!

    Haha! They never act fast on user complaints. If that was the case they would have left our audio API alone!

    Yeah, which is a bummer. Well, maybe they haven't figured that part out yet. What ever it is, I hope to see more good things to come from them.

    They need to make separate WP7.x and WP8 versions to leave audio api alone or abandon the reliability for WP7.x crowd and keep same version. I think they want to reach more users just via one app rather than make two apps.

    Well update to 2.9.3 now as it fixes the slow load times. As for the battery drain, that's due to their use of the audio API to keep the app running in the background. Nothing can be done about that till they introduce another way.

    2.9.2 went fine.

    2.9.3 has killed my phone.

    Installed and uninstalled three times. Each time I install, my phone starts to lock up. Get black screens, wont respond.

    Delete whatsapp and it goes away. Now I cannot use it. Ugh.
