Google Translate for Android
Learn a foreign language with Google Translate

Even when you go on vacation, the chances are that you will take your mobile with you. As well as providing you with access to the internet and a means of keeping in touch with people back home, it can also be a useful tool when you are in a foreign country. Thanks to Google Translate, you no longer have to carry around books of handy phrases to help you to converse in the native tongue – this app could be everything you need.

Available free of charge from Google Play, the app can be used to translate between dozens of languages, and this can be done in a number of ways. The first option is to simply type the word, phrase or sentence you would like to translate before selecting the relevant language. There is also a speech to text option which will enable you to dictate to your phone, but this is only available in 17 languages at the moment.

Not all translations involve conversations. You may encounter a sign that you do not understand. Rather than typing out the words in full, you can simply take a photograph of the sign, gesture over the words you want to translate and the rest will be taken care of for you. Whichever method you use to input the words you would like to be translated, you will be provided with a translation in next to no time.

If you are unsure of how to pronounce any of the words, you could simply flash your phone at the person you are trying to talk to, but you can also opt to have the translation read aloud. This is useful mid-conversation, but it can also be used at home as a learning tool. Ordinarily, an internet connection is needed to make translations, but your translation history is saved for offline access.

Google Translate for Android 3.0 adds:

- Handwriting input is now available for Hindi and Thai
- Camera input is now available for Afrikaans, Greek, Hebrew and Serbian

Verdict:

A must-have app for anyone venturing overseas – a great vacation and business tool

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.
