Facebook Messenger
Manage all of your messages in one place with Facebook Messenger

Facebook has been making strides into the instant messaging market, and Facebook Messenger is its standalone app for those who want to chat without the distraction of timelines and all the other Facebook paraphernalia.

Long-established on iPhone and Android, it’s only since version 7.0 that Facebook Messenger has embraced the iPad properly, taking full advantage of its increased screen real-estate. This redesign aside, the different versions share the same broad look and work in a similar fashion too.

You can keep up with recent contacts, search for people to initiate conversations with and even set up groups for collective chats. The app also supports VoIP calling for voice chats too.

Posting is as simple as tapping in some text, or you can step things up and send smileys, photos and even recorded snippets of audio.

The app itself will appeal mostly to those Facebook chat addicts who want fewer distractions and a simpler, most focussed user interface, although the fact you can’t hide the left-hand pane in the new iPad version will annoy those used to being able to focus in on a single chat window in the phone version.

Messenger is a simple idea executed well, developed from an app Facebook bought three years ago and ultimately is worth installing if you love chatting with others through Facebook’s own IM network.

New in version 7.0:
- All-new native iPad app.
- Videos shot in Messenger can now be saved to your camera roll.
- Reliability fixes.

Verdict:

A wonderful messaging system that combines the best elements of picture messaging, Facebook chats and SMS into one handy communication tool.

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.
