If you're one of the users who got banned, hopefully temporarily, from WhatsApp by using a third party app, or if you're a developer of one of those said third-party apps, hopefully you haven't been holding your breath for a change in the situation. At Facebook's F8 conference, a panel was held that included top brass from social networking bigshots. Among them was WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton. When asked whether the service has plans to release any API for third-party developers, Acton plainly but respectfully shot down the idea. A rather bold statement, considering it was, after all, a developers conference.
