    The "BB10ness" of it all yes, its similar just like many native apps, but there is no way you would confuse one app with the other

    Screenshots? Would be nice to compare. There's a difference between copying, and following suggested developer guidelines with the UI to ensure user experience consistency.

    I believe some of the developers at Whatsapp use to work for BlackBerry. I could be wrong though.

    Unreal. Unfortunately, if it looks like a whatsapp, smells like a whatsapp, steals like whatsapp, bothers you like whatsapp. It's probably whatsapp.

    I'm not a WhatsApp user (Hangouts/SMS/BBM for me), but here's what it apparently looks like on Android. Definitely some BBM influence in there (but a trimmer version of it), but also a little Hangouts influence (particularly the input area at the bottom) and some uniqueness as well. I personally like the look of it, it looks like a more efficient use of GUI space than BBM, or at least BBM on Android.

    It's unfortunate that people think whatsapp is the original. I wonder if there are any legal avenues to get this blatant copy changed or discontinued entirely, sort of like what they are doing to the typo keyboard. It's a shame BlackBerry gets no credit for their brilliant work. I find myself really disliking these companies that have become successful by blatantly copying BlackBerry while giving no credit to their obvious inspiration...
