WhatsApp is a very popular cross-platform application used for communication between smartphones. This application uses network connection to send messages. That means it is totally free to send messages, pictures, audio files and video messages. With voice calls of WhatsApp, you can talk to your friends and family for free, even if they're in another country.

Even better,

WhatsApp is registered with a phone number, and then WhatsApp will search your phone contacts and automatically add them to the list.

As an iPhone user, you must have seen WhatsApp when you open your Contacts app in order to call others.
