WhatsApp iOS 7 update shown off in video

Screen-Shot-2013-11-21-at-15.37.21

WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps ever launched on iOS. It has millions of users, and as such, I’ve always felt the developers and designers have been resting on their laurels and not updating the look/feel/UX often enough. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great service and connects many people across the globe, but someone really needs to set a fire under their developers’ backsides. iOS 7 has been available to devs since late Spring this year, and it’s still not updated its app to fit in with the new software.

I did get my hopes up a little too far I feel, as I assumed taking this long would mean the app would be completely revamped. I was wrong. A leaked video (picked up by Christian Zibreg at iDB) shows off the upcoming user interface, and – apart from taking many design cues from iOS 7 – it looks pretty much the same as it always has, and there are no new notable features. (For your info, it’s all narrated in German.)

We have no information on when it’s going to land on the App Store, but, it should be fairly soon, given the “finished” look of the app in the video.
