Hey Ushis and friends. Here's a fun query for you. Has anyone tried or thought of a way to accept reports via What'sApp rather than building out full apps that require encrypted/obfuscated sender protections?

[Will Doran, Ushahidi] Hey, we have wanted to do an integration with Whatsapp but their API was closed for a long time and it wasn’t sustainable to use an adapter that would break often. They do seem to have better API access now but we haven’t had time to look into it, if there was a straightforward adaptations we’d happily add it into the tool.

I see there's a developer from Sierra Leone who tried to build a PHP based solution, but it looks abandoned for the last few years. Might be worth looking at?
