i have read that now you have just one year for free and then you have to pay like a dollar, i know it's not much but i wanted to be sure if this is for real... the app works fine i think there wouldn't be a problem in paying but i wanted to know.. if it has been free all this time... should stay like that :D

Whatsapp does not have a web client, do not be mislead by the seeming web utility mentioned at

The app acannot be used by a computer without android or some other phone OS.

Then you have to pay ~1$ a year.
It's not much. I'm ok to pay for softwares I like.
But on the other hand KakaoTalk and LINE do the same thing, plus calls, for free...
