If you are a dedicated WhatsApp for iOS user then chances are that there are many things you would want to change about the popular messaging app. Although WhatsApp provides an easy way to communicate with friends there are a few annoyances associated with the app that if removed will make using it a better experience. A new Cydia tweak called Watusi aims to fix all of these issues for users allowing them to disable features and make changes to the application.
Watusi tweak brings some really useful functionalities that includes the Freeze LastSeen feature, which prevents the app from updating your ‘Last Seen’ status even if you have it turned on from app’s settings. The tweak has the ‘Read Receipts’ feature that prevents others from knowing that you have received as well as read their message.
Here’s a full list of features Watusi tweak adds to WhatsApp
Freeze LastSeen: Stops the app from updating your ‘Last Seen’ status.
Read Receipts: Stops the app from sending delivery or read receipts to other users.
Status Length: Increases status length from 139 characters to 256 characters.
Profile Photo Fit: Allows users to fit photos to the box when changing profile pictures.
Unlimited Photos Selection: Select unlimited amount of photos when sending them to other users.
Always Connected: Always show the send button even when offline (similar to Android app).
Ask for call: Ask before calling any user to avoid accidental calls.
Dark Keyboard: Bring dark keyboard to the app.
Disable Landscape: Fully disable the landscape mode (even works when the rotation mode is on).
Hide Timestamps: Hide timestamps for messages.
