I had to stop using WhatsApp recently as it can’t crashing on me even after a restart and reinstalling the all. A seriously buggy piece of software if you ask me. I can see third party apps are held to a different standard because if messages crashed like this I’d encourage everyone to sell their Apple stock personally
Confirmed: It works on iOS 8!
It used to crash whenever there was a double t or double f etc, but I’ve just opened a huge thread and it seems stable. Finally can start using it again :)
I’m using iOS 8 and WhatsApp was terrible. Just installed this update. Hope it stop crashing.
I’m using the latest iOS 8 beta and it’s finally working again. Smooth running so far, no bugs or crashes :)
iOs 8 bug solved. Uh. Finally..
works like a charm on iOS 8 beta 5 iPhone 5 :)
I am on IOS 8 beta and upgraded my whatsapp to this newest version and now I can’t open the app itself. Earlier it crashes whenever chat has fi ff tt kind of words.. but now its crashing on the whastsapp optimizing screen itself.
One maddening change/bug: If you type a lengthy message and the message bubble expands, the Send button is now vertically aligned in the centre, so it moves as the message gets bigger, rather than always sitting directly above the keyboard. I’m almost 100% sure this wasn’t the case before.
still cant save incoming media to a dedicated folder……
I’m on iOS 8 beta 5 and have a 5s. I don’t see how to use the Slo Mo video feature.
I can’t open Whatsapp after that the latest update. It keeps crashing at launch. I have already tried deleting and reinstalling, but when I restore backup, it’s going to crash where you can set your profile picture and your username. And if I do reinstalling without restoring my history then Whatsapp works normally…

After last update it pushes users to set notifications by most irritating way. Where are ideas of original founders? Why Apple didn’t stop this, it is against their intention to let users to set notifications the way they need?
