We posted earlier about Whatsapp being updated to version 2.9.571 which came with free lifetime use for BlackBerry users. It seems that an error occurred with the update and the free lifetime usage part was a mistake. Whatsapp have since corrected the glitch and have now released version 2.9.653. Shame, but that's just the way it is.  

We are still not 100% sure if we will see Whatsapp supported on BlackBerry 10 but as we pointed out recently RIM have spoken to the developers regarding this, so fingers crossed. In my opinion I still find the app the best way to communicate with my friends using Android, iPhones, Windows Phones and Symbian. Either way, we shouldn't have too long to wait to find out.

New features in the update include:

• New emoticons
• Stability & performance update
