How App'd: WhatsApp

While the battle of BBM for BlackBerry versus countless messaging apps for the iPhone rages on, one app stands to defy all odds and unite the two phones. WhatsApp is the first app designed for direct messaging between the iPhone and BlackBerry.

There's no need to sign up and create a handle or user name. All you have to do is download the program and use numbers from your existing contacts to start messaging. Don't forget to use the "Tell A Friend" feature after you download the app or else you'll be saying "WhatsApp?" to no one but yourself.

Available for: iPhone, BlackBerry, Nokia Symbian S60 (public beta) and Android OS (coming soon)
: $0.99
: Say farewell to embarrassing handles/user names.
Con: None I can see at this point.
