Editors' Review

WhatsApp Pocket for Mac allows you to back up and restore text messages and files sent through your smartphone's WhatsApp application, and can also quickly import your WhatsApp contacts to your email. Overall, it's neat and intuitive, but the demo version comes with limitations.

Pros

Intuitive design: WhatsApp Pocket features a clear and easy-to-navigate design. By following a few straightforward steps, you will be able to restore old WhatsApp texts in no time. If you have a recent backup on iTunes, you won't even need to have your phone plugged in to your computer to search through old messages.

Internal search feature: The search feature in this application is very convenient if you are trying to locate a particular text.

Helpful user guide: Even though you probably won't need it, there is an informative, step-by-step user guide available on the developer's Web site.

Cons

Limited demo: Although you can preview most features through the WhatsApp Pocket demo, you can't save anything. Also, a big pop-up ad prompts you to purchase a full license each time you click on a button. The demo only provides a snapshot of the full product's functionality.

No phone export option: Any recovery that you make through this application will stay on your computer. You cannot export messages back to your phone.

Bottom Line

Intuitive and easy to navigate, this application works as promised. If you use WhatsApp constantly and are worried about losing crucial messages, you should try out WhatsApp Pocket's demo and consider purchasing the full version.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of WhatsApp Pocket for Mac 3.5.1
