    Crap, put the file on the SD Card, went to the WhatsApp page in the store and no option to install from SD Card :(. Any other suggestions?
    Don't go to the app's page - there should be a separate option somewhere if you go into the store. Maybe on one of the other pages or in my apps - I can't test right now as Linux is being a PITA in mounting my 620.

    Thanks, I think I edited my post as you were replying. Turns out you have to wait a while for the SD Card option to appear in the Store. It finally did, but Whatsapp appeared as an "unsupported app" and was greyed out, so it didn't let me install it from the SD Card :(. Any other suggestions for how it can be side-loaded?

    I'd put money on it being pulled because of a security issue. I'm sure it'll be back in the coming days.

    Far as I'm aware that's the only method.

    Why would Joe and Satya want to know? If the publisher of the app has pulled it, there's not much MS can do.
    To be honest, one less spam-ridden, data-slurping app in the world might not be a bad thing.

    Phew. Any way to be sure they are official?

    Also, the beta is still here and was updated just yesterday, so they're definitely not bailing out

    Notice the reviews/ratings number?

    Are they trying to reset the bad ratings because they are improving?
    It makes sense because an app of Whatsapp scale would never recover after a bad rating

    Yup, can't install it. And can't sideload it either. Got a developer's account and tried to deploy the xap file from the official WhatsApp page in the WP Store (not the beta one) and I get errors like "cannot read as a Zip" file or other senseless crap. It's most definitely a xap file and not a zip file. This is exasperating.

    Well, problem solved. Maybe they want a fresh start on the reviews and ratings now that the app would be marginally better
