i already had the same message several times. actually, my intention was to really pay for it on the last day when it is about to expire. but i think whatsapps probably thinks i'm going to give them up altogether, so the app was auto-extended around 1 week before it expires.

so my advice is to wait till your expiry date. pay them if there is no free extension granted on the last day.

0.99 a year is still quite affordable for a good app like this.

for Christ's sake, for that price and the amount of time you spend on the app, it's already worth it.

just 0.99 USD and you can complain..

ya lor i tried a few other apps e.g. kik. got one friend based in europe using textplus. but in the end whatsapp still the best.

sometimes i browse the google play store, one live wallpaper already asking for 99 cents usd!!!!!! after i buy the live wallpaper use 3 days only sick of it and start searching for another one.

this whatsapp........ i everyday chao chao using it for 30 minutes??? for 99 cents a year, more than worth it lah!

Not because whatsapp is better, just that more people using it on iOS.

Line much better, got desktop client some more. Whatsapp stubbornly refuse to have desktop or even a web client.
