Hideman 2.0
An easy-to-use VPN service with a free option

Hideman is a straightforward VPN service which can quickly allocate you an IP address from several countries (Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Netherlands, Panama, Russia, Singapore, Ukraine, UK, US), helping you to bypass location-based content restrictions and preserving your privacy online.

The program can be used for free: just launch it, click Connect and you'll be given a free hour. You won't always have the option to choose your location (we were initially allocated a server in Germany, although later we had the option to choose a server in a supported country), but otherwise the system behaved well, and for instance we didn't notice any significant drop in performance (although apparently free connections may be speed-limited at peak times).

Need more time? You can have up to 4 hours a week, and just clicking the Payment tab, then selecting "Free hour" will extend your anonymity for just a little longer.

If that's still not enough, though, you can always opt for one of the paid plans. There's a lot of choice: $3 for 1 week, $9 for a month, $15 for two months, $39 for 6 months, $69 for a year: it's your call. Simply click the Payment tab, choose the plan you require and you can pay from within the Hideman client.

Verdict:

Hideman is a fast and straightforward VPN service with a good allowance of free time.

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.
