How To Customize Every Part Of WhatsApp On iOS 8

WhatsApp is among the most popular instant messaging app around, and having been acquired by Facebook recently by a colossal amount, is considered the de facto cross-platform IM service. But despite its array of features, it’s still not complete, and WhatsApp+ has long offered Android users the perks that many would deem to be missing. Now, WhatsApp+ has arrived for iOS 7 and iOS 8, and while being jailbroken is the key prerequisite, the list of enhancements to WhatsApp suggest that it’s a tweak worth jailbreaking for.

To prevent immense strain on the WhatsApp servers, there’s a cap on how large a file can be when sent to another user. But with WhatsApp+, this limit is lifted, and there are plenty of other perks bedsides.

Stealth Mode, for example, allows you to use the service without revealing your online status to those you’re chatting to, and with the ability to disable read receipts, you can remain inconspicuous if you so wish.

As aforementioned, there are no limits on how much media you can send at any one time, and if you’re into theming, WhatsApp+ has you covered in this regard as well. You can change everything from the text color to the overall theme, and the developer has promised that more customization features will be forthcoming.

If you are a WhatsApp user and jailbroken, then this is a must-download, and if you’re in a position to jailbreak but have yet to take the plunge, then you may seriously wish to consider jumping on the bandwagon.


And oh, WhatsApp+ also lets you disable those pesky ‘read receipts’. But, if you only want to get rid of the aforementioned feature, then you might also want to give WhatsApp Read Receipt Disabler a shot.


The complete set of features of WhatsApp+ are as follows:
