AVG Anti-Virus Free for Android
Keep your Android device free from viruses with Anti-Virus Free

Viruses are a serious problem for all computing platforms and this includes Android. AVG Anti-Virus Free is a free protection tool designed with Android devices in mind, and despite the name the app is capable of much more that simply detecting and removing viruses – there are also a number of tools on hand to help to improve the performance and stability of your mobile.

Virus detection is the key reason for installing the app, however, and Anti-Virus Free can scan apps and files in real-time to ensure on-going protection against viruses and malware. If you should lose your phone, the app provides you with the opportunity to remotely wipe or lock it to prevent your personal data from falling into the wrong hands.

A beta version of a backup utility is included, and this can be used to safeguard your valuable files and data by copying them to an SD card. This gives you the opportunity to protect personal information such as text messages, contacts, web logs and more.

There are a number of other handy features including a task killer that can be used to quickly and easily improve device performance by terminating tasks and app that have frozen or are causing slow-down. Your mobile now contains just as much, maybe even more, personal information than your PC, and this free utility enables you to ensure that it stays protected in a number of ways.

Verdict:

Another great security tool from AVG which goes the extra mile in providing Android user with additional protection options.

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
