WhatsApp today added several new camera improvements for its iPhone app, including the ability to draw, write, and place emoji on photos and videos before sharing them. The features are similar to the camera features offered in both Snapchat and Instagram Stories.

Users will be able to use the new editing tools for photos and videos captured within the app and photos and videos previously captured and stored within the Photos app. The editing tools will also include the ability to change the color and font of the text.

The WhatsApp camera has also gained several other improvements, including front-facing flash, the ability to zoom in and out by sliding a finger up and down, and quickly switching from the front-facing camera to the rear by double tapping.

WhatsApp is available on the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

Telegram is still my chat client of choice. Anyone who I have gotten to use it never looks back. Full of features. And so much faster than iMessage when sending media.

WhatsApp's new update sucks. All the names in the chat window are skewed to the left, not centered anymore...
I must admit that this is annoying. I've lost count of how many times I've gone to hit the 'back' button but instead pressed the senders profile screen icon

Surprisingly, of all the new iMessage features in iOS 10, drawing on pictures isn't one of them. You can doodle on pictures inside your photo library--but you first have to navigate to them, tap edit, then tap the little 3 dots in the top corner (at least, on my iPhone 5 you do), and then finally tap "Markup."

Then you can return to iMessage to send the drawn-on picture.
I think you can do it faster. In messages, select a picture and hold down on it and a screen will come up with the markup option. Two touches to the phone to get there all inside iMessage.
