    Thanks!

    Bump.

    Searching Google came across this thread.

    When will the BB app be available? This would be a lifesaver for me!

    It seems like it -was- available and now can't be found. Someone please enlighten us!

    Public beta expected soon.

    From what I gather, its primary function is an upgraded Address Book that displays contacts' status so you can wisely choose the best way to contact them.

    I think it uses phone numbers as the uid. It apparently does other things, such as chat. However, not enough of my contacts use it and facebook connect doesn't seem to be more than a web link.

    Wish the facebook status and whatsapp status (and maybe even tweets) could sync.

    i used to have the app on my phone but deleted it because it was pretty useless. the blackberry version only supported status updates and i only had 2 other people in my address book that used the service. they both have iphones though.

    I agree that Whatsapp suffers from backwards people buying buying backwards phones such as Nokia, LC, Sony, Motorola..

    However, it wasn't so long ago that BB was in that list, and Whatsapp is a good idea.

    It would be nice to see that someone is current Driving, Sleeping, or in Court before ringing them. It would be awsome if other people could see when its a good time to leave me alone!

    I'm sure its use will expand to other phones given time, although I think Whatsapp is going to attract competition...

    Were you able to see your own status at any point?

    I added myself to my address book and it does not show.
