Posted on 7:11 PM by SlipKoRnSaad

Wazapp (Whatsapp port for the N9) 0.1.6 for N9 is out as a public beta. Get it from

Enjoy testing and please report any bugs to tarek[at]wazapp[dot]im

Some FAQ:

How long do I have to wait if registration fails?
Registration failure error has a number like "fail-too-recent::X", X is the number of minutes you have to wait before trying again.

Will I still receive notifications when I close it?
-If you close wazapp by swipe down or from tasks window, it will remain running in background and you will receive notifications normally. If you close wazapp using the "Quit" button, it will totally exit and you won't be notified about new messages

Does it support media sending (images,sounds, location ..etc)?
-Not yet. If someone sends you media it will not show up on wazapp, and the sender will not receive a "delivered" receipt from you.

Does it support group conversations?
-It supports group conversations partially. If you already belonged to a group, you will be able to send and receive messages on it. Buy you cannot create a group and yoou can not join new groups. Oh and you won't be able to identify the message sender in a group as well :P

Does it create an internet connection by itself?
-It uses the current internet connection and does not issue a new one automatically. If you disconnect, reconnect, Wazapp will restore its connection automatically.

Does it support emoji?
-No. And if someone sends you an emoji (smiley face), it would appear most probably as boxes. You might have seen similar behavior if you used Whatsapp on Symbian before it supported emoji

How does whatsapp fee and account expiry work on wazapp?
-Currently if your account expired you won't be notified. Wazapp will not be able to connect without giving a reason.

Can I choose or change my password?

How do I edit pushname ?
-From accounts settings in accounts manager

So here is a list of missing (and upcoming) whatsapp features:
Fully functional group conversations
Sending and receiving Media
Sending emoji

Known issues with this version:
Splash screen is not swipable
Auto registration code handling doesn't always work
Notifications won't go away until you click it
Chat item text max length is according to screen orientation where it was initially calculated
Received duplicate messages are not discarded
Chat bubbles don't scroll correctly on virtual keyboard open/close
