1Password for Android 4.5.3
Create, use and edit secure passwords with 1Password for Android

The number of web sites and applications that require users to log in with a username or email address and password is staggering. For maximum security you should try to have a unique, hard-to-remember password for each login you use, so if one gets compromised, the rest remain safe.

Doing this by hand is almost impossible, which is where a password-management service like 1Password comes into play. This lets you store all your passwords securely in a vault that’s unlocked by a single master password (this is the one you need to remember), then auto-fills them into websites as and when required. It’ll even generate secure passwords for you.

The service originated on PC and Mac, extended to mobile and – until recently – was limited to a read-only app on Android. That meant you could access your previously stored passwords through the app, but not add to them or edit existing info.

From version 4, however, the app has been rebuilt from the ground up to be fully functional, so you can update your passwords from your Android device, then sync them back to your computer or Apple mobile or tablet if you wish. Or, of course, you can use the app completely standalone.

Unfortunately this comes at a cost – the free version of the app is the old, read-only version, but a one-off, in-app purchase unlocks the rest of the functionality.

What's new in 4.5.3?

- Support for Marshmallow and run-time permissions. {OPA-610}
- Updated Korean localization with additional translations.
- Resolved a security issue where, in rare circumstances, auto-lock would not properly lock the 1Password
- Keyboard if lock on exit was turned off. {OPA-633}

Verdict:

Now that 1Password has implemented all of its functionality into the Android app, it could become a compelling alternative - depending on its price - to rival services like Lastpass.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.2

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.
