Twitter for Android 5.71.0
Twitter for Android enables you to keep in touch and up to date on the move

Twitter is something of a unique social network that can be used to not only expressed opinion, but also chat with friends, keep up to date with the latest news, share images and much more besides. This is the type of service that is ideally suited for use on the move, and this is precisely what the Android app enables you to do. There is support for multiple accounts so if you keep one for business and one for personal use, they can both be managed from within the same app.

If you are using the app to share photos when you are out and about, you have a selection of image hosting services that you can use, but there is no choice when it comes to URL shortening; in fact there is very little scope for customization and tweaking within the app at all. The basics of accessing your timeline, direct messages and conversation threads is easy enough, as is the process of creating lists to make it easier to manage a huge number of people you follow.

It could be argued that the interface is in need of an overhaul as new features that have been added to Twitter feel somewhat shoehorned into the mobile version of the app. Navigating to different section of the app can take longer than it should, and not everything is intuitively located. It’s something of a shame to find that there is no support for gestures such as swiping left and right to move through different sections of the app, but this is really a minor annoyance.

The latest version of the app, version 5, ships with these new features/changes:

- New design.
- Refreshed look and feel. Home, Activity and Discover now available by swiping in Timelines. 
- Share photos in Direct Messages.
- Send and receive photos via DMs.
- Notifications from your network.
- Choose to view Replies, Retweets, and Favorites from only the people that you follow.
- Receive Push Notifications from the people you care about most.
- Favorite their profile to receive a Push Notification any time they tweet.


It’s not perfect, and there are more feature-rich third party tools available, but the official Twitter app is a solid performer

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

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.

Version 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
