4 great reasons to join Stomp's WhatsApp service

You have probably heard about Stomp's WhatsApp service, which lets you send reports on-the-go, get updates to the top news stories and more.

But if you are still undecided about whether to subscribe to this service, here are four reasons to help you make up your mind and jump on the bandwagon.

1. It is free

Let's admit it -- we all love freebies. This service comes at no cost and you can choose to unsubscribe anytime, so what do you have to lose?

Plus, this does not require any queuing. Chances are the WhatsApp application is already installed on your phone anyway.

2. The most hassle-free way to communicate with us

Forget filling in your name, email address and whatnot whenever you want to send a report. Talk to us like you would a friend!

You can even get replies immediately... or know when we are ignoring you thanks to blue ticks (kidding!).

3. It makes you cooler in front of your friends

You'll be the first to get breaking news alerts and learn all the juicy details to a story.

Go show off your newfound knowledge in front of your friends and impress them with how up-to-date you are.

The next time they want to know something, you will be the cool go-to guy whom they approach first. Great conversation starters for when you are on a date too!

4. The service is managed by the Stomp Editor himself

Who better to answer all your burning questions about Stomp than the man himself? Enough said.
