DesktopNotifier
Use DesktopNotifier to receive desktop alerts from your Android device

When you are sitting at your computer, it can be annoying to have to keep picking up your phone every time it vibrates or sounds an alert. You are already using another machine, so it would make sense if you could use it to keep track of all of the notifications you receive. This is exactly what DeskNotifier enables you to do, freeing you from the restraints of your cell phone or tablet.

This free program is available as a Windows and Android app and enables you to receive Android notification on your desktop computer provided both devices are connected to the same wireless network. The setup process is not quite as simple as it could be. Once you have installed the desktop and Android versions of the app you will need to start by activating the app in the accessibility settings of your Android device. You will then need to use the app’s configuration screen to determine your device’s IP address and enter this into the desktop version of the program.

If you are choosing to charge up your phone or tablet whilst you are at your computer, the connection can also be established with a USB cable, but the wireless option is far more useful. Whenever you receive a message, email, or some other form of notification is generated on your Android device, a pop up will appear from the taskbar of Windows. There is a fairly impressive range of support apps, including Facebook, Viber, Astrid Tasks and all of the standard built in features of Android.

This in itself is useful enough, but the app goes further than this, enabling you to send SMS messages from your desktop. To do this, you just need to right click the app icons in the notification area and select the SMS option to be presented with a list of your contacts. Select whoever you would like to message, enter your text and hit Send. The ability to use your computer keyboard is a much faster way to type messages than most Android keyboards – a great time saver.

Verdict:

A great tool for office workers, but handy for anyone with an Android device

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.
