Community Port of Whatsapp for the Nokia N9

| March 31, 2012 | 15 Replies

If you want to see how the port of Whatsapp for the Nokia N9 the community is doing, head on over to TMO.

A lot of progress, though equally still a long way to go. But the goal is in sight.

Seems there’s also a website where the folks working on this are looking for donations to keep the progress going.

Progress update from tgalal

Hey guys, here is quick progress update:

  • Message delivery indicators – Almost
  • Chat logging - Done
  • Editing Status - Not yet
  • Only 1 to 1 Conversations - Done
  • Contacts sync - Done
  • Integration with Accounts manager - Done
  • Integration with Meego’s notifications - Almost
  • Running the app in background - Not yet

And adding to the done list too:

  • Registration which is done too via native Accounts manager. It also automatically parses the received Whatsapp code so you wouldn’t enter it manually.
  • Contact is typing indicator
  • Contact presence

I would greatly appreciate any advises concerning running the app in background. I’m looking for a behavior that would be pretty much similar to how original Whatsapp works (almost un-exitable). PS: I’m using python + PySide.

Thanks Edmund and Mohammed Ayman for the tip!
