INSTALLATION AND EXECUTION NOTES:
-----------------------------------
- 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).

ACKNOWLEDEMENTS
-----------------
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 ;)

Whaaat? More info, please! I've been following Eric Blade's efforts, and now this comes as a complete surprise! Where did it came from?

ajguns 09/21/2012 04:56 PM

That would be great! Do you have a time frame established or just a spare time project? Need to know if I'll have to come here each day or not so frequently. As an independent app? Personally I love webOS synergy. I still pay to have it as a synergy service instead of an app. But whatever works is fine.

Hi, I'm waiting for the post to be approved.
Is an independent app, a personal project. But it will be public.

It comes from my own. It's a webos hybrid app (like wIrc), based on Mojo framework. it includes most of the features of Whatsapp.

I do not know what problem you are referring, but I can say that this app is based in the code of other Whatsapp clients (like wazapp for maemo devices).

geileszeuch 09/21/2012 06:53 PM

That is amazing work. This client is even better than the official client for WP7.

I take my hat off to you!

Herrie 09/22/2012 02:36 AM

Seems to work for me too!

I do have 1 problem though! One of my friends 100% sure has WhatsApp, but his number doesn't appear in contacts? Any idea how to fix this?

gerzhwin 09/22/2012 02:43 AM

I received the SMS code in no time. So, for my understanding: I use the mobile phone number of my contacts for sending messages, right? What happens if they donít have Whatsup installed?

gerzhwin 09/22/2012 02:45 AM

Anyway: Nice work and good to know that webOS is still able to keep up!

spbb 09/22/2012 03:46 AM

Amoralico, thanks for your great work, working flawlessly on my Pre2!

[QUOTE=spbb;3353554]Amoralico, thanks for your great work, working flawlessly on my Pre2![/QUOTE]

How is the "connection" problem? Did you use the time interval thing? Is the dashboard icon annoying?
What about battery drain? Any differences?

Thanks to the OP for his effort :)

Sonic-NKT 09/22/2012 04:04 AM

wow this came out of nowhere and it works great as far as i have tested it.
great to have this on my pre3 finally :)

is it normal that contacts show all contacts with phone numbers even if they definatly dont have whatsapp?

do you plan translations? wouldnt mind helping for a german version.
