Question about What'sApp

I am not exactly a Luddite, but I am by no means a technology whiz. I am meeting a friend in Paris after we both will have been traveling separately for a couple of weeks. I will have an Android platform smart phone set only to wifi. She will have an iPad mini.

Recently my brother, SIL and I were traveling in Ireland with our smart phones and we downloaded and used the What'sApp texting app. It worked really well for us when we of course had wifi usually in the hotel. We were also able to communicate easily with their son in Barcelona who downloaded the app as well.

My question is...does the What'sApp work on an iPad mini? Sorry in advance if this is a dumb question, but I really don't know anything about Apple products.

It works perfectly for me on my iPhone 4S. I see no reason it wouldn't work just as well with an iPad.

Gotta have wifi for everybody.

No, I'm wrong in the answer above. I just read closely the information in the App Store. Whatsapp only works on telephonic devices - it explicitly says that it does not work on either iPads (any size) or iPods. Sorry for the wrong steer.

I reinforce that it works perfectly on an iPhone.

Thanks so much Nigel. I didn't think about looking at the App store. I should have thought of that.

Thanks, Dick! I will try installing What'sApp later today. I'll let you know if it works or not. Nigel, thanks for looking into it. PS: I'm The Friend!
