WhatsAtor: Send WhatsApp Messages from any screen on iPhone

WhatsApp is one of the most used texting apps these days, the popularity of which is increasing everyday. Users can not only send texts, photos, videos but now they can also send audio files as texts and that too without any charge. The users using WhatsApp, however, need to use their data for this purpose. The other major advantage of using WhatsApp is that it is compatible on all phone OS available today, so whether it is iOS, Android, Blackberry or Nokia, people can use the app.

Well if you are using WhatsApp on your iPhone then here is some app that will help you. The app is called as WhatsAtor and can be used to send WhatsApp messages from anywhere on your iPhone. In simple words, you don’t need to locate the WhatsApp icon and click it to start it, just use this method to compose your message from any screen on your iPhone and this works in other app too (say you are using some other app, then you don’t need to exit that app to use the WhatsApp).


How WhatsAtor works:

WhatsAtor is an Activator based app for your iPhone which means you can set up any launch action for it (like shaking your phone). So whenever you need to send a message, just perform your favorite action (to launch WhatsAtor) and a dialog box will pop up in front of you.

In this box, you can type the message that you need to send, and when you click the Send button, the app will automatically open the WhatsApp for you so that you can now select the recipient. The developer had made the box little eye catching as it changes color each time it is opened.


WhatsAtor is available for free in the BigBoss repo of the Cydia store. The app will help those users who don’t like to travel to WhatsApp icon to launch it, however it would have been more useful if there was some option of entering the recipient into the box directly rather than opening the WhatsApp. Also this app can’t be used to reply to any WhatsApp message, for which you will have to open up your WhatsApp only.
