WhatsApp for Desktop gives you the possibility to have all your messages in all your chats synchronized on your PC. And do not worry about security, every message is encrypted so only you and the recipient can read it, hear it or see it.

shame that it says "Not compatible with iOS" in small writing quite far down the page; could be good if that was more prominent

@_jacksmith Sorry, I'll make it more prominent.

Once again great work by @aluxian who already successfully released http://www.producthunt.com/tech/... For me now the suite is complete & I can have all communication on my desktop. No need to switch between desktop & phone all day long when chatting during the day. Feel free to contribute and improve the product. The source code is available at https://github.com/Aluxian/Whats...

@aluxian @nikgraf Wow.... I was just thinking about something like this yesterday and POOF, it's on product hunt! Nice work, I will share some feedback once I play with it!

WhatsApp is apparently working on a version that enables this functionality for iOS users. A beta version can be downloaded (see http://www.whatsappforall.com/wh...), but you need to sign it using developer tools before you can install it.

@jwvd That's good news!

Is this a node-webkit wrapper around the WhatsApp web client?
Alexandru RosianuMaker@aluxian · Co-founder & CTO at Futuristico
@basicallydan Yep! It's WhatsApp Web running on nw.js (formerly node-webkit). On top of it, I made notifications work, I added custom themes (coming in the next release) and I did some other tweaks to improve the experience.

Unfortunately not for the Mac, unless you have an Android phone you can use to activate the webapp. Whatsapp for iPhone still doesn't support barcodes.

@t55 I haven't tried yet, but that should do it: http://www.idownloadblog.com/201...

@t55 Yep, WhatsApp for Desktop is cross-platform, but only compatible with some mobile devices. It's incompatible with iOS due to how the operating system works – it doesn't allow apps work in the background.

@t55 that's really a shame
