Top 10 reason behind the success of whatsapp mobile application
Whatsapp is the one of the leading messenger app for all the mobile platforms. By using whatsapp application you can send text message, voice note, photos or images, videos to your mobile phone contacts. This application is free for certain period. Most probably in India this application almost provided for free of cost. Because whenever the license is going to expire for the particular users they might send notification to renew the account with the minimum amount of 1$. But people are not ready to pay 1$. But that expire date will be automatically increased to one more years. I think this is happening only in India. May be some other country also validity date getting extended for one more year.
