Recently I wrote on the release of WhatsApp Plus (Reborn) but little was known to me that an update on an Anti-ban WhatsApp was due to be released. This is WhatsApp Material Design (MD) v3.5.
It is based on WhatsApp+ and earlier versions of WhatsApp MD
Nobody wants a boring and non flexible app and this developer made sure we get a super cool app with a Google hangouts look.
This App comes with the following
– Transparent text input field background
– Google Messenger like Coloured Chats
– Font colour of “Last Seen” is now white
– Font colour of text is now white to match
– Font colour of date/time in chats is now
– New voice message mic, progress bar and
– Group chats fixed
– Sent check marks fixed
– No profile images on chat screen (Like Google Messenger)
and many more..
As stated in an earlier post, mimic apps of the original WhatsApp granted the user number a 24 hour plus ban but the developers on this have assured it has a way around it, Its ANTI-BAN.
How to Instal
First you should have the original app installed and running. If not download it and instal. Use it to send few chats. Save the conversations.
Uninstall the original app and download WhatsApp M 3.5 here. It is just 24.7 mbs.

Many people have been using the ‘fake’ WhatsApp+ until owners of the genuine WhatsApp realised they were losing so fast to the mimic app and banned further developments to it.
Earlier this year in February, WhatsApp+ was banned, and even going ahead to block users found for 24 hours.
Those users who we were not privy to the ban notice have been having problems as the counterfeit app has no ability to update, forcing them to re install the original green app.
Developers of the Blue app have however come up with a way of by passing the 24 hour ban and have developed WhatsApp Plus (Reborn).
An action is yet to be taken by original developers as users continue to rally their support behind this Blue App.
For those who have interacted with WHATSAPP+ will agree with me that it’s awesome. The embattled app give the user to manipulate it in various ways.
For instance, one can change the themes, outlook, set notification when A member appears online and many more. One good feature of it is the ability to clear data thus saving space, what the green App can’t to.
To the loyals, keep up but those who love adventure like me, try out WhatsApp+ Reborn.
