Use GooReader to access Google Books online and offline

Google Books is a great service that enables you to buy a wide range of ebooks online as well as reading thousands of free books, magazines and articles. While the convenience of being able to read books in your web browser is to be welcomed, it is also a little on the awkward side. This is something that GooReader aims to address by making it possible to read books both online and offline as well as providing you with a dedicated app for reading.

GooReader synchronizes with your Google account so you do not need to worry about having to re-download the same titles, and if you have a large number of books in your collection, you’ll appreciate the ease with which titles can be organized. You have the option of arranging your books in libraries and bookshelves and nothing more than drag and drop is need to group books together in whatever way works best for you.

The fact that your library can be saved to your hard drive means that it is ideal for those occasions when you are going to be without an internet connection. When travelling you cannot be certain of being able to get online whenever you like, so it is good to be able to plan ahead and ensure that you will be able to access you book collection.

There is also a paid for version of the app available, but this differs only very slightly to the free version. If you are willing to part with $19.95, you can free yourself from the advertisements that are found in the free version as well as gaining the option of saving Google Books as PDF files. Aside from these two minor differences, the two versions of the application are identical, so unless the PDF saving option is particularly important to you, there is little point in parting with any cash.

Verdict:

An improvement on browser based reading, the free version of GooReader should be enough for most people.

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
