Google 5.1
Install the Google app to take advantage of Google service in iOS

Google is known primarily for its search engine and email service, but the company also has a great deal more to offer. Google for iOS is a redesigned version of the Google Mobile App that provides access to not only web searches but also Google Docs, Calendar, Read, Photos, Talk and much more.

Anyone who has used the previous app is in for a pleasant surprise as Google includes a new interface and enhanced search options. As well as being able to search using text, it is also possible to perform voice and searches based on photographs. Once search results are displayed, swipe to the right to view a list of options that will let your refine your search results.

The Google "Goggles" tool is what makes it possible to search for images using your camera, and this can be used in a variety of ways including photographing barcodes to find prices, or scan book covers to find out more about a particular title. A downward swipe at the top of search results is all it takes to start a new search or access other Google web apps.

The list of web apps that can be accessed from Google is extensive – some 13 titles in all. Should you find that you are not making use of all of them, unwanted shortcuts can be easily removed, and the remaining items can be re-arranged to suit your needs.

What's new in v5:

• Recents—see & return to your recently visited pages
• Google button—start a new search with just one tap
• Google Maps—explore interactive maps, nearby places & Street View right inside the app (for iPhone)
• Beautiful new Material Design animations
• Bigger photos in image search
• Looks great on the new iPhone 6 & 6 Plus

Verdict:

An indispensible tool that makes it so incredibly easy to make use of Google’s services on your iOS device.

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.
