Hotspot Shield VPN
Reduce your data charges and protect your identity with Hotspot Shield VPN

When you are away from a wireless network, when you are out and about with your Android phone you have to make use of your mobile provider’s data packages. This can quickly become expensive because even if you have an inclusive allowance, it is all too easy to use the internet more than planned and end up with a hefty bill.

Hotspot Shield can help you to reduce these costs by compressing data so you do not need to download as much data when you are visiting web sites. This not only helps to save money, but it can also help to speed up internet usage, so it can be handy when at home as well. But the app also includes security features and a handy VPN feature.

The VPN side of things makes it possible to access sites that have been blocked in certain countries, but the security options that will be familiar to anyone who has used the desktop version of the software are particularly noteworthy. Any data you send when using a wireless hotspot is encrypted to prevent data from being intercepted, and your IP address and identity are protected.

While the app is free and all of the features can be used free of charge for a week, if you want to continue working with the app you will need a subscription. You can buy a subscription as an in-app purchase, and this will set you back $0.99 for a month or $9.99 for an entire year.

Verdict:

The money-saving aspect of the app may be negated by the subscription costs for some people, but security features are impressive and worthwhile.

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.
