MojoWhatsup v1.6.2 (alpha)
MojoWhatsup is an IM application for Webos that allows you to chat with your Whatsapp friends

MojoWhatsup has been developed as a Webos hybrid app, i.e. a javascript webos app (based in Mojo framework) and a plugin (mojowhatsup_service_plugin) in C++. The plugin implements almost all Whatsapp communication API.

I've tested this app in my HP Veer and my Touchpad. I've also tested it in Pre 2, and Pre 3 emulators. It works for me but surely there will be bugs that I have not detected.
Please test it on your own and if you find any troubles contact me.

- Max phone length corrected in account configuracion

- Download above .ipk file. Install it in your device using Preware, Internalz or WebOSQuickInstall.
- Maybe the first time you launch the app you will see an empty card. In this case relaunch application.
- Due to the fact that is an hybrid app, the plugin has to be associated to a webos 'stage'. So, the only way to run it in background is minimizing as a dashboard stage.
- Another problem I found is that webos blocks socket connections when device goes slepp after a few minutes. So, you cannot receive or send messages after wake up. To only way to keep awake device all the time is to use Power Manager service, but it really drains battery life. For this reason I added in preferences the possibility of choosing reconnection intervals when app is in backgroud (dashboard).

I've upload source code to ginhub:

If this application has been useful for you or you liked it, please consider donating.
I spent part of my spare time in the last three months to develop this application.

I have been able to develop this application thanks to all Internet users who have previously spent their time selflessly to bring this application to unsupported devices.
Thanks to Tarek Galal (tgalal) for "wazzapp", the whatsup client for Maemo devices.
Thanks to "virox" from the webos nations forums for the application icon.
Thanks also to the members of webosnations forums, in particular the "Whatsapp for Webos" thread.
Thanks to "Eric Blade" (eblade), because surely the version he is developing will be much more suitable for webos devices than mine. I'm looking out a version that integrates with Synergy.
In general thanks to whole internet community for their posts regarding this issue that have helped me a lot.
And finally thanks to Palm and HP to develop the Webos operating system that has surprised me so much.
Thanks to isagar2004 for helping with registration problem.


Enjoy it
