Will update you on the progress.
Bug where a few categories were not shown, is now fixed!
REJOICE - WDF CROSSED 3,00,000 DOWNLOADS!
Just to give you a massive update - last month your app had 3,00,000th download!!
Yes! And all this without any marketing done in direct / indirect sorts! 177k on Android & 123k on iOS! And in the month of Dec'15, we had our highest download numbers by far!
This is perfect start to the new year - which we believe will be most defining year of this app - as we have big plans going forward in terms of both features in this app & reach to masses! You will have plenty of nice surprises to digest!!
It has been a great journey so far when we look back. And a big thanks to all the users esp our old users, mods & top uploaders - WDF always has a special place for you - you all make this app what it is today!
ALL CATEGORIES NOW AVAILABLE WITH COMMENTS READING
Now your website WDFapp.com shows all categories including Puzzles, with comments displayed. So basically all of our app is there on the web!
And the best part is #:123456 works with comments there as well!!
Enjoy & tell your friends about it!
HUGE SURPRISE!! WDF IS NOW FunOn, and here's why...
Well, it started with SMS Addict - which is still considered as v good name - but we parted from it due to 1. 'SMS' decline was writing on the wall, 2. we had to include images as well.
We then picked WDF (WhatDaFun) - as then app was only youth centric.
But, as the app grew in the meantime, we saw it's audience is now actually EVERYONE who has a smartphone!
And thus, we went for a clean, simple, cool to speak, easy to guess spellings (for word of mouth publicity), any age safe!
WDF was extremely difficult name to comprehend for whosoever is not familiar with WTF (surprisingly, there are a lot!). In addition, due to its slight spelling variation from WTF - it was a disaster for word of mouth recommendation! You always needed to clarify spellings (huh!). And lastly, as most of you would agree - even for the people who know about WTF, WDF doesn't sound decent name to some of them!
And, as a bonus - we have a new refreshing icon is focused on laughter - finally!!
As you know with us - there is nothing permanent here - everything is an experiment - big / small - both. This one was not so successful - not an issue!
We hope to see new life with this name FunOn! Lets see what it has for this app's future.
Hope you like it!!
And again - thanks for all the love - it is the fuel for this app!!
WDF.. errr.. FunOn Team!!

SERVER UPGRADE IN QUEUE - WILL HAVE SOME DOWNTIME!
Hi Folks, hows it going? Seems all great looking at your emails & reviews!! We see mainly 2 requests prominent nowadays - ability to block user & separate Hindi English texts. We will begin working on both points very soon!
However, this post is to tell about a nice to have problem that a growing startup faces (that we faced 3 time prior already) - server chocking. You must have seen lately the app has having intermittent downtime - and you guessed it right - which is because of sudden jump in users due to our super active consistent work in Android. Only last month we added almost double the number of android users than the prior highest record!!
So, in that regard, we are now shifting to a new powerful server - not just powerful, a 5 times powerful server than current!! Whoa! It should care about the app speed for at least one year now! The earlier it starts to choke, the better :).
We are already in process of migration. And as includes a certain downtime (5 min - 6 hours user to user depending on various factors), we will aim for India Late night time.
Hope to see you on new server very soon!!
