BlackBerry today announced that WhatsApp, the popular messaging application, is now available to BlackBerry 10 devices, such as the Z10. Similar to Apple's iMessage or Samsung's ChatOn, WhatsApp is an over-the-top messaging service that uses mobile data connections to pass messages back and forth to other users. It allows smartphone owners to cut down on potential carrier-based messaging fees. WhatsApp for BlackBerry 10 integrates with the native contact application and offers push notifications on the lock screen when new messages arrive. It is a cross-platform service, so BlackBerry 10 device owners will be able to use WhatsApp to chat with friends or family who use Android, iOS, or Windows Phone devices. The app is available for free from BlackBerry World.

I think this is a very important application to have added to the BB10 portfolio; however, Netflix decided against it as of right now. Perhaps in the future because on that screen?!!!! Come on man!! (ESPN trademark show-lol)
Allegedly, a future OS update is going to add compatibility with Jelly Bean,so you'll be able to side load any Android app....so anything missing from Blackberry World can be gotten from Google Play or from the Amazon App Store
