WhatsApp Plus vs WhatsApp, a mod with themes and additional emoticons but is it worth installing

In recent days you might have heard of your friends asking you to download WhatsApp+ and you may have searched for the download link by googling it.  I am writing this post to bring you the advantages and disadvantages of WhatsApp+ over WhatsApp.

First and foremost, WhatsApp+ is a mod App created by the Spanish developer Rafalete in 2012. The WhatsApp+ or WhatsApp Plus Holo is free and uses the same user license as WhatsApp.  The only outward difference is the WhatsApp+ icon which is blue in colour.  

WhatsApp+ is not a legal version of WhatsApp so you are at risk of data theft, contacts theft if you download it.  It also requires you to remove the original WhatsApp to install WhatsApp+.   Once you have removed your WhatsApp and installed WhatsApp+ here is what you will get.

Themes : - The most notable feature of WhatsApp Plus is the ability to add new styles or themes to completely change the way your WhatsApp looks.  


WhatsApp+ has over 700 FREE themes which are sorted by top downloads, names, date and version. WhatsApp+ themes can not only change the background of the chat, but the bottom of the contact list, and the colors of the bar and texts.  This is one of the main reasons why users prefer to install WhatsApp+; the other reason is the number of emoticons.  The WhatsApp+ author has managed to merge the Google+ emoticons with it and the result is fabulous.  Below is the complete image of emoticons available for WhatsApp+

If a WhatsApp+ user send the extra emoticon to a normal WhatsApp user, he/she will only see a empty box with a question mark in it.

The other advantage WhatsApp+ had was to hide the users online status. This feature has now been incorporated in the official WhatsApp. Another WhatsApp Plus option lets you change the size limit of sent files from 2, to 50 MB. There are also options for maintaining the size and quality of images and videos.


By the looks of it, WhatsApp+ or WhatsApp Plus Holo seems a very brilliant mod by the author/s but users have to remember that it does not have any privacy policy or EULA which can safeguard your privacy/data/contacts.  If you still feel that you can download the WhatsApp+ APK from here.  Do remember to uninstall the original WhatsApp before installing the APK.   Also goto Security > Click Unknown Sources and unclick verify apps in the Android settings.
