Some rumors were going around here and there about the removal of WhatsApp from App Store due to some aforementioned security issue.
We need to clarify that those are only rumors, and it’s not related to the truth by any means.
The Truth is that WhatsApp submitted a new version of the application and they are still waiting for it to be approved by Apple as confirmed below in their Twitter:
Sorry, WhatsApp is temporarily unavailable on iTunes. We submitted a new version and are awaiting approval and publication by Apple
So WhatsApper’s don’t worry, the divorce did not happen yet.
It’s official now, the Final release of iOS 5 countdown started.

What you are waiting for? Go ahead and be ready for the most advanced Mobile OS release.
What’s new in iTunes 10.5
iTunes in the Cloud. iTunes now stores your music and TV purchases in iCloud and makes them available on your devices anywhere, any time, at no additional cost.
Automatic Downloads. Purchase music from any device or computer and automatically download a copy to your Mac and iOS devices.

Wi-Fi Syncing. Automatically sync your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with iTunes any time they’re both on the same Wi-Fi network.
Apple announced the new update for iTunes to fix some known issues with the earlier version.
In my opinion, Apple is preparing the final release for the new iTunes to be compatible with the new iOS, and they will keep releasing more fixes like this more often in the next few days.
What’s new in iTunes 10.4.1
iTunes 10.4 is now designed for OS X Lion. You can now use iTunes with OS X Lion’s new full-screen app capability, which allows you to use iTunes and other apps without distractions. Navigate between your full-screen apps with a simple gesture.
iTunes 10.4.1 provides a number of improvements, including:
• Fixes a problem where the media keys on some third-party keyboards work inconsistently with iTunes
• Addresses issues with adding artwork to songs and videos
• Resolves an issue which may cause iTunes to become unresponsive when purchasing an HD movie
• Fixes a problem where iTunes may take longer than expected to open after waking your Mac from sleep
• Addresses issues with VoiceOver support
I was told by a friend of mine that iCloud is already active. I went to my iTunes on my iPhone and I found that I can see all my life time purchases on it. The best part that it has a way to check the purchases that are not available on iPhone so you can download them.
Way to go Apple, you keep a smile on our faces.
148apps, Chomp and Chillingo on Tuesday sent out a large infographic to commemorate the achievement, revealing that the average price for an application is $3.64, while 37 percent of all applications are free. Though Apple is believed to have approved more than 500,000 applications, the amount of active applications available in the App Store is roughly 400,000.
The stats also reveal that it would cost $891,982.24 and over 7 terabytes to get all applications available in the App Store. And unsurprisingly, top-selling paid application by far is Angry Birds, which has held the No. 1 spot for 275 total days.
In comparison, Google’s Android Market has about 294,000 applications, and 3 billion application downloads.
Today Apple released a new update for iOS handhelds, which is release 4.3.3
Apple’s response to the tracking bug came sooner rather than later and it already announced the release iOS 4.3.3. The update is specifically designed to address the tracking problem that has mesmerized the mainstream media. For those who are not aware the iPhone database stores months of information, although Apple said anything more than a week’s worth of data was unnecessary. This function has been labeled as a „bug” by iPhone and the iOS 4.3.3 is here to prove it.
The iOS will arrange things so that the location database will no longer be backed up to iTunes and the number of days logged, will be reduced. Also when Locations Services are off, the database will be deleted.
In addition to all that the iOS will improve battery life and bring “iPod bug fixes.” Boy Genius Report correctly predicted the release of iOS 4.3.2 within a two-week time frame last month, but the imminent release of iOS 4.3.3 should surprise no one. Last week Apple saw the necesity to issue a press conference mentioning that a fix was on its way and also made company executives, including CEO Steve Jobs available for an interview.
Currently my iPhone is already plugged to iTunes downloading the new update, while I’m posting this article.
To all the iPhoners out there, All the best with the new update.

Today’s recommendation is World of Goo:
The game is developed by 2D BOY, World of Goo (iTunes link), $9.99 USD (currently on sale for $4.99), is a physics-based puzzle game in which the player must lead a group of Goo Balls into a pipe and out of the level. World of Goo has already been a huge hit with its Windows, Mac and Wii versions. Being the year’s most anticipated game, does it live up to all the hype that it’s received prior to its release? Well, here are my thoughts.
