WhatsApp is the best cross platform mobile messenger that is used by millions of people world-wide. It is a free text messaging app for Ipad, IPhone and other mobile devices. In this article I am going to discuss How to Download Whatapp for Ipad and Install it.

You can send unlimited free text messages to your friends or family members using WhatsApp. The only requirement is that you should be connected to Internet via Wi-Fi/mobile data or 3G connection. Along with messages, you can send images, videos and audio files to other WhatsApp users.

I have already listed WhatsApp in my recent articles of Top Symbian Apps and Best Free Text Messaging Apps for Android. So, Android and Symbian users can get it by following those articles.

WhatsApp is available Free for IPhone. But unfortunately it is not officially available for Ipad & Ipod. It doesn’t mean that you can’t use WhatsApp on your Ipad.  Because in this article I am going to share a trick that will let you install Whatapp on Ipad without jail breaking it.
