    Do you think we'll get WhatsApp on the iPad anytime in the near future? Why or why not? All my friends use it and I use it on my iPhone.

    Can't you use the iphone version on your ipad? I'm not a big fan of the program, tried it on my BB and did not like it, BUT I can see the appeal of it.

    Whatsapp is a nice application for communicating with friends in real time using your smart phone devices. I have been using it on my iPhone 4S and I am pretty satisfied with it.

    Part of the problem is that WA works with a Cell#. That is a problem with the iPad. I am not sure if the 3G version of an iPad would work though. I know WA works over WiFi but you need a Cell # to set it up. KakaoTalk is the same way.

    What use to be called PingChat, I think it is just Chat now, can be used just over WiFi. It uses a Pin# so that iTouches and iPad can use it.

    Also up and running on Twitter @AUDad

    Also on Google+ if you are on there.

    You cannot install it on the iPad. Searching for the app in the App Store on the iPad doesn't get you any results.

    WhatsApp messenger application does not work on the iPad. One and only way to get it to work is to (1) jail break the iPad and (2) install the tweak "WhatsPad." Then after, you will have to do a bunch of configuration to your setup to get it to work on the jail broke iPad.
