I also have a few photographs I could release for this project.

RE: Idea for WhatApp on ubports
I know this topic is quite old, but I just came about it and I was wondering...
If there is a WhatsApp version for Windows, would it be possible to use that and run it with wine?
Maybe we could sandbox it somehow, and this method could apply to other apps too, effectively mirroring the Windows Store, if we could block/control all the access to the device and run them securely.
So, would wine work in general? I haven't tried the os yet, but I'm about to. I have to backup the data on my phone first. And loosing contact with people on WhatsApp was the first thing that came to mind. I'll have to find a second phone now...
Edit: Also, I remember reading about a developer who reverse-engineered the WhatsApp client, releasing a desktop version and he ended up with a law suite against him. Are there any legal grounds to that? Besides using their trademark, I can't see anything illegal about it. It seems similar to the "fake" ink printer cartridges. I believe a law suite was won in favor of the third-party manufacturers.
