Benchmark your Android device with Geekbench

It used to be the case that benchmarking software was only available for desktop computers – PCs and Macs – but the surge in popularity of mobile devices mans that developers have been inclined to produce similar tools for mobile platforms. Geekbench is a well-respected benchmarking tool that is available for Mac, Windows and Linux, but there are also mobile versions available for Android and iOS.

The hardware market for Android devices is far more varied than for iOS and it is likely that you are unaware of just what hardware is to be found within the casing of your phone or tablet. The opening screen of the app reveal basic information about the system it is being run on such as the version of Android that is installed, what make and model of hardware is being used and the name and speed of the processor that is installed.

But things start to get a little more interesting when you select the option to run benchmarks. In doing so, you opt to put your Android device through its paces after which it will be assigned a rating so you can see how it compares to other devices in different areas. By performing test on integer and floating point processing as well as running memory tests, each area of your device can be given a rating and from this you can learn the overall rating for your device.

This is a great app for settling arguments about who has the fastest mobile, but it also provide you with a useful way of determining whether any of those tweaking tools you have been using are actually doing their job properly. Should you find that the figures returned by the benchmarks are significantly lower than expected, this could be indicative of a hardware problem that you should investigate.

What's new in 3.4.1?

- Updated comparison chart design to improve readability.
- Updated comparison devices

Verdict:

While not quite as informative as the desktop app, this is still a useful tool for the curious mobile user.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

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.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+) 
- Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+) 
- A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
