Whatsapp is finally back on the market for WP8 devices, the developers had promised an application that was 6X faster than the WP 7 version, so is it?
The app itself is definitely much faster, I don’t know if this is due to WP8 being faster in general, or the folks over at whatsapp doing some tweaking; either way its great. However it still is missing the large tile size (double tile) as well as notification support on lockscreen, which honestly is a must now. Also as noted the Emojii have been removed from this version, although it could be making way for the improved emojii promised in a future update.
In case you can’t find it in the store you might have better luck scanning the QR code below:
