WhatsApp, one of the most popular cross-platform messaging services, has received an anticipated iPhone overhaul for the iOS 7 design aesthetic. The free app update includes a redesigned, less glossy icon as well as an entirely new interface throughout the application. The app also gains a series of new features and enhancements:

 - broadcast lists: communicate with your classmates, work colleagues or just friends by messaging many people at once.

- improved share location: 3D map view, hide places, search places

- large thumbs: see more

- new notification alerts and sounds: WhatsApp Settings > Notifications > New Message.

- application will now use your device text size as configured in iOS Settings > General > Text Size

- new improved User Interface for managing your blocked contacts: WhatsApp Settings > Chat Settings > Blocked

- crop image before sending

Notably, Broadcasts Lists seems to be a worthy competitor to many of the iOS-based group text chat services. The WhatsApp update is free on the App Store now.
