OneNote Mobile
Create, store and sync notes on your Android devcie with OneNote Mobile

There has been something of a delay in OneNote reaching the Android platform after Microsoft release iPad versions of its note-taking tool, but the app is now here. Coming from Microsoft, it should come as no surprise that synchronization with Office is available – this is achieved by automatically uploading notes to SkyDrive and then synchronizing them to your computer or other devices.

The key to success with any note-taking tool is versatility, and this is something that OneNote Mobile has covered. You can use the app in a variety of ways, starting with freeform note-taking. You also have the option of creating bulleted list and the checklist options means that the app can be used for basic project management or simple things such as shopping lists.

If would have been nice to see features such as voice notes, support for ink notes and a widget to allow for easier and faster access to the app. As it stands, if any of these options are deal-breakers for you, you’re going to have to look to an alternative tool such as Evernote. What OneNote does, it does well, but it is lacking in some areas – but where it really excels in its ability to allow users to work with a wide range of platforms to access and create their notes.

There is really little to differentiate the Android version of the app from the iOS edition. This means that while this is a very useful and well-polished tool, but it suffers from the same problem. While the app is available free of charge, you are limited to creating 500 notes. If you need to create more than this, you will need to make an in-app purchase that will enable you to create as many notes as you want.

Verdict:

The mobile version of OneNote does not beat Evernote, but for Office users it is very powerful.

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.
