BullGuard Mobile Security for Android
A comprehensive mobile security suite

BullGuard Mobile Security for Android is a comprehensive internet security suite for your mobile device. Up to three devices, in fact, with the standard licence, and this can be upgraded to cover five.

Once installed BullGuard's powerful antivirus engine automatically scans your system, detecting and blocking malware before it can do any harm.

This release now checks apps before they're installed, again blocking anything untrustworthy.

Better still, new cloud-based technology ensures you always get the benefit of the latest antivirus definitions, without the hassle of regular updates, improving performance and keeping battery-draining system load to a minimum.

If your phone goes missing then the antitheft system provides strong all-round protection. A Scream function locates devices nearby; GPS location picks up everything else; you can remotely lock or wipe a device, and you can have the program automatically lock or wipe data if anyone tries to change the SIM card.

A new Call Manager automatically blocks spam from short code numbers (anything with 5 or less digits). Other numbers may be added manually, from your contacts or call history. A Blocked Items tab shows you what has been blocked recently, and a Whitelist ensures trusted numbers can always reach you.

Parental Controls allow parents to monitor installed apps, calls, messages and pictures, as well as locating a device, and all from any internet-enabled computer.

A revamped backup tool offers one-tap backup for your contacts, calendar and messages. Sadly, while it can also back up your files (music/ video/ pictures/ more), you'll need to purchase backup space for these separately. This isn't cheap, either, with prices starting from an extra $8 for 5GB, to $130 for 100GB.

Verdict:

BullGuard Mobile Security for Android provides solid security for a wide range of threats. The cloud-based antivirus engine should improve accuracy and cut its battery-draining resource use, too. Backup space is a little expensive, but the suite scores highly where it matters, and the 15-day trial build means you can try before you buy.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
