Norton Mobile Security
Keep your Android device protected with Norton Mobile Security Beta

Symantec is a well-known name in the security arena, but they are best known for their desktop software. Norton Mobile Security Lite, however, is a security package aimed at Android users that includes many of the features you would expect to find in desktop security software. In addition to virus protection - that includes scanning downloads and memory cards - there are a range of other features that help to keep your mobile secure.

If you phone is lost or stolen, Norton Mobile Security will automatically lock the phone when the SIM card is removed so that no other SIM can be used in it. There are also a number of remote access options that you can control manually if you discover that your phone has gone missing, including the ability to lock your phone so it cannot be used to make expensive phone calls.

There is also the option of locating your phone on a map, which can be useful if it has been lost, but may also prove useful if it is stolen as it may helpful to the police. It is likely that your phone includes a large amount of personal information - information that could be used for ID theft - abut the remote wiping feature means that you can easily prevent this from falling into the wrong hands.

The suite also includes features that will appear familiar from desktop security software, such as the blocking of phishing web sites. Another interesting feature that will be welcomed by anyone who has been pestered with unwanted contact, calls and text messages can also be blocked to help boost your privacy.

You can upgrade to a full version within the application for $30.

What's new in v3.8?

- New lighter User Interface
- Other minor bug fixes

Verdict:

A great way to keep your phone and its data safe, although an expensive in-app upgrade to the full suite.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
