Hey everyone! I just created a new App, for now am limiting the App's release (Alpha 1) to the good old XDA folks.

It's a Chat Helper for WhatsApp.

The App embeds and shows a WhatsApp widget and displays it whenever you are on a chat with someone, the widget shows the count of unread messages you have and of course it keeps updating live. Clicking the widget will quickly display a screen full of unread messages for you peak through, from this screen you could quickly jump to any of your chat contacts/groups or hit the X to go back to your chat. If you switch to a new chat, you could go back to your previous chat by just hitting the back button. And all this will hopefully make you a better multitasker when it comes to chatting. :D

The App is tagged with an Alpha 1 version badge, I hope to upgrade that with your feedback coming through various devices. Also, I would like to emphasize that the App does NOT modify WhatsApp in anyway, just enjoy the enhanced experience with no worries of being banned. :)

Few Tips/Instructions for the App:

  • The App needs a 2 step setup (3 if you are on Android Marshmallow), which you need to do only once and never have to visit the Settings again.
  • When the App prompts to provide permission to create widgets, please go for "Alway allow...", this will let the App automatically get the widgets ready and display at right time, right place.
  • If the unread count badge obstructs any of your view elements (may be when keyboard is on,) you can drag the badge vertically to a new place (but restricted to right side of the screen for now.)
  • If you open the unread messages window, always try to use the X at the top right corner for faster re-access.
  • If you click any chat in the unread messages window, it will take you to the respective chat. Once you're done interacting, press the back button to quickly go back to the previous chat.

nice idea and thanks for making our lives easier!

but i would like to know the difference between this and the official whatsapp widget which also shows the amount of unread messages + preview of the text? :).

is it due to the minimal design and it appears everywhere as a floating widget?

And yes, you're right. As described, it's about embedding and displaying the official widgets at the right time, right place and thus making 'our lives easier'. :)

Guys so far things look good for an alpha version, I plan to release a more concrete version soon, let me know if you have any minor feature requests that I could add at the last minute.

Work fine on S5 Lollipop. Great Work!

Moving the Widget to the left side, would be great.

Hi

Nice app !!! Really makes texting quicker...
Few suggestions I thought of :
1. Add an option to contact you via the app
2. Add an option to hide the window when there are no messages
3. Add an option to hide the window for a timed interval
4. Add an option to use a smaller window ?

Cheers!
