iExplorer
iExplorer enables you to copy files from your Mac or PC to you iOS device

One complaint that iPhone, iPod and iPad owners have, particularly when comparing their devices to Android phones and tablets, is that there is no easy way to browse through the files that are stored on it. Individual app my provide you with the ability to browse and open files that have been created in that particular app, but there is no file explorer utility built into iOS that can be used to navigate through all of your files.

This is where iExplorer can help you out. Once installed on your Mac or PC, you can connect your iOS device to your computer in the usual way, but with the added ability to not only browse through the contents of your device but also take advantage of drag and drop to copy files from your device to your computer, or copy files in the other direction if you prefer. Your phone or tablet is transformed into a USB flash drive that can be used for all manner of things.

Unlike some other similar tools that exist, there is no need to jailbreak your iOS device in order to use iExplorer. In order to take advantage of the power of iExplorer, aside from having an iOS device, the only requirement is that you have iTunes 10 or greater installed. There is no need to use Apple’s software if you don’t feel so inclined, but it is needed to allow the application to communicate properly.

It does not matter if you have an app installed on your device that can be used to open a particular type of file as you are able to copy absolutely any files onto it, providing you have the space available. If you have opted to jailbreak your device, this does open up additional options to you. You can browse through your SMS store and address book, backup and restore your emails and much more.

Verdict:

Providing the features that should have been a part of iTunes from the start, this is an essential app for any iOS device owner.

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
