Facebook for Android 7.0
Keep in touch with your Facebook contacts using Facebook for Android

One of the most common uses for smartphones – besides making phone calls – is to access the internet, and social networks in particular. By far the most popular social network is Facebook, and the official Android app makes it even easier to access and interact with the services than the mobile version of the web site.

As you would expect, the app makes it possible to post status updates and messages as well as conducting chats with your friends. The current version of the app is a much sleaker affair than in the past, and it’s easier than ever to watch video, read messages and interact with others.

The very latest version of the app includes support for a swipe-to-update gesture which makes it faster than ever to view the latest posts. Support for the newer privacy controls means that you can now configure location and visibility options for individual posts that you make. A redesigned news feed can also be used to check into places when you are out and about.

Another new gesture allows for easier navigation between images in galleries; rather than having to tap arrows to move from one image to another, you can simply swipe left and right. The Android version of the app is still not as complete as the iPhone version, but it’s getting there.

Facebook for Android 7.0 brings these changes:

- Include photos in comments
- Delete and edit photo albums
- Untag yourself in photos
- Upload multiple photos at a time in groups
- Improvements to help group admins pin and unpin posts, and review pending and reported posts

Verdict:

Much more user-friendly than the most Facebook web site, the Android app is a must-have for all social network users.

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.
