WhatsApp for iPad

Few months back we shared a method with you guys to install WhatsApp on iPad without Jailbreak. Sadly the old method is not that reliable anymore. Moreover you need were also required to have iPhone to properly run kick start WhatsApp installed on iPad.

Our Experience With WhatsApp on iPad

Before proceeding further we would like to tell that we have tested the WhatsPad Jailbreak tweak on iPad Air and it works like charm. But our experience on iPad with WhatsApp was not so good. First it is not optimized for the larger screen and retina HD resolution so you will find icons and text blurry. Secondly if you have WhatsApp on iPhone than you can only use at one device at a time for which you have to remove the account from the iPhone which is really annoying. So from our experience we say WhatsApp is better on iPhone or smaller screens.
