WhatsApp is a feature rich application that provides all the OS platforms a single communication channel for their online messaging. The popularity of this app is such that at times, other apps are developed in order to tweak how WhatsApp works. Extend its functionality or to make it work faster or more efficiently. Today we’ll take a look to one such app i.e. W- Tools. W-Tools is a small app that lets you appear inactive on WhatsApp but still reply to your messages. What it does is keeps the app from updating your ‘last seen’ time as well as the ‘read’ state of your received messages so that those who sends you messages after your last time think you haven’t seen them yet. It’s useful when you want to stay alert for an urgent message but not be bothered by small things. The app also has a ‘bomber’ feature that allows you send the same message multiple times to a single contact or a group of contacts.
From the app’s home screen, select the ‘Hide Last Seen’ option and choose what kind of connection you’re using i.e. Wi-Fi or Mobile Internet. Once you make the selection, tap the ‘Start Service’. W-Tools will now run in the background, and you can read messages without them knowing you’ve opened the app since your last ‘last seen’ time.
Your recipient, regardless of what device or platform, will see the message as sent but not as having been read. In addition, your last seen time won’t be updated or set to ‘online’ either when you open the app while the W-Tools service is running. To disable it, return to W-Tools and tap ‘Stop Service’.
The bomber allows you to enter a message, and send it number of times. Tap ‘Send’ and select either a single contact or a group of contacts and they will be bombed with the same message multiple times. It’s fairly handy if you’re being spammed by someone or have a prankster on your hands and want to return the favor.
