WhatsApp finally gets iOS7 Redesign in new Update

WhatsApp for iOS just got a huge update today, bringing in an iOS7-friendly redesign.

iOS7 WhatsApp

It looks just like you’d expect an iOS7 version of an app to look, with no more glossy panels or icons, yada yada. The update also includes:

What’s New in Version 2.11.5
2.11.5

– new iOS 7 User Interface

– 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

Reminder: you can backup your WhatsApp conversations into iCloud. Simply visit WhatsApp Settings > Chat Settings > Chat Backup and tap on “Back Up Now”

The Broadcast feature has popped up on the Windows Phone and Android version already, and allows folks to send a message to everyone on their list. Useful and a bit spammy, I guess.

Available right over at the App Store.
