    Last week Facebook bought messaging app WhatsApp for a whopping $19 billion. Thatís a huge win for the team at WhatsApp, but itís also left a lot of loyal WhatsApps users feeling a little burned by the move. The fact that no major technology company controlled WhatsApp was appealing to some of its 400+ million users. Those wanting an experience similar to WhatsApp, but arguably better, have recently been flocking to Telegram.
    Last Saturday when WhatsApp experienced downtime, Telegram picked up 4.9 million new users. Itís slowly been creeping up the most popular download lists on both Android and iOS, but the recent WhatsApp news have helped propel it even higher. Weíre still waiting for an official Telegram app to hit Windows Phone. While we wait, letís check out some unofficial apps available right now in the Windows Phone Store.
