This application review is for the most widely used messenger that is WhatsApp. You might have heard about it (if you’re not living under a rock). It is used by more than 1 billion people in over 180 countries. Initially WhatsApp was incorporated in 2009 by Brian Acton and Jan Koum after they bother left Yahoo!. What’s interesting is that they applied to work for Facebook and got rejected and years later the CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg bought WhatsApp!
