I want to allow only certain apps (e.g messages,whatapps,viber,etc.) to use cellular data. Is there a way to do it?

As of right now with iOS 6 you can't do that, but you can reduce cellar data by shutting off notifications for that apps you don't want to be running cellular data.

Settings > General > Cellular brings you to where you can control certain usage of mobile data for the apps where you allowed it:
- iCloud Documents
- Passbook Updates
- Reading List
Plus some apps have options for allowing or prohibiting mobile data, e.g.:
Settings > FaceTime : Use Cellular Data ON/OFF
Settings > Podcasts : Use Cellular Data ON/OFF
You will have to individually review options for each application to control its usage of mobile data.
