    Have you email them to find out what the progress is? The company themselves might be able to give you a solid answer.

    Default Whatsapp for iPhone 5 ?

    I'm starting to see more updates for iPhone 5 support coming out now. Tapatalk and Atomic Web are two of my most used apps that were recently updated.

    I did e-mail them and they replied with the classis "what's you're iOS , and what phone device are you using ? "
    although my email was very clear "UPDATES FOR IPHONE5" lol ?

    i find it hard to type bcs the keypad will show half screen so you kinda have to stretch your thump up if you know what i mean so i have been avoiding using whatsapp lately ..

    Default Whatsapp for iPhone 5 ?

    This has been annoying me also. A few of the freebie time waster games I have installed have already been updated, yet Whatsapp hasn't.

    I use it a lot and its a PITA because the keyboard is raised up because its not full screen.

    Honestly these developers knew iPhone 5 was coming, no?

    Albeit if an app is free, I sort of understand the delay. Unlike paid apps there is a little more urgency, no?

    WhatsApp is a paid app. I don't think being a free or paid app has anything to do with update times, though.

    yeah exactly
    i mean Facebook and twitter and instgram updated their apps a day or 2 days after
    and the rest of the top apps did the same .. and now even the freebies and games !!
    except for whatspp and the thing is we paid for it !!

    i guess we are not asking for much just to stretch the screen for now
    and if there is another major updates let them take the time they need .. just fix the screen for now !!

    The whatsapp on my iphone5 is working perfectly well, its exactly the same as on my previous phone, no problems. Not sure what you want them to change on the upgrade?

    Judging by the posts above yours, I'd say they'd like app to fit the new screen size so that the keyboard isn't moved up from the bottom.

    Thanks, I understood that, it's just personally i'm not finding that the keyboard takes up that much space, and the app is still using the full screen, it's just how it was before which for me is fine. Maybe its just personal tastes and thumb sizes.

    Are you using an iPhone 5? (EDIT: I see above that you are...but if it isn't updated then it couldn't be using the full screen I don't think?) It seems like they aren't enjoying how the app is letterboxed (bars at the top and bottom). If you're on a 4S or below it would still use the full screen. I guess it just doesn't bother everyone.

    Whatsapp for iPhone 5 ?-photo.png
    Yea must just be personal preference. I attached a photo anyway just to show those without an iphone5 what it looks like so can get a better idea (blurred out the number for obvious reasons). Just looked at the date of the original post and thinking maybe is has had an update by now anyway.

    Ha, I never even noticed that! A quick look at itunes shows that it was indeed updated in mid-November.

    Case closed!

    well, I bet most new apps are compatible to iPhone 5. For those still seems no upgrades, the developers are doing their best to announce the upgrades.
