Of all messaging service apps, WhatsApp is the most popular of the lot.

The app uses the same internet data plan that you normally use and sends SMS (text messages), images, video and audio to anyone without burning a hole in your pocket.

WhatsApp has its own strategy in mind when it comes to different mobile platforms. For example, on Android platform, the app is free to download and after one year, the user needs to pay $0.99 for a year, while on iOS, it is a paid app at $0.99. This means that by spending a mere $0.99 initially, users can save money on SMS fees.
