Pocket Planes

Sim games are all the rage and there are games that provide simulations of running cities, train networks, planes, and much more besides. Pocket Planes, as you may have guessed from the name, places you in charge of a fleet of planes which you can use to transport goods and passenger all over the world. There’s a real sense of progression as you upgrade from tiny planes to jumbos and gain the ability to access larger and larger airports.

This is a great game for statistic fans. There are leader boards aplenty so you can see how your fleet compares to those of your friends as well as the rest of the world. You can customize your fleet of planes with personalized paint jobs and revel in a game that harks back to the days of 8-bit gaming console with it very retro look and basic yet addictive style of gameplay.

Despite the fact that there are two different versions of the app available iOS and OS X, the two are identical. This does not mean that iOS users are getting a great port of a stunning looking OS X game, rather that OS X users have to make do with an exact replica of an iOS title that feature 8-bit style graphics and an unoptimized aspect ratio.

This does not necessarily detract from the game, but it’s a shame that the developer has not taken the rouble to make platform specific releases. On the positive side in this regards, however, it is possible to synchronize your games between devices so you can play on your iPhone or iPad when you are out and about and then pick up from where you left off when you get home to your Mac.

Verdict:

A great, addictive little sim game that will keep you entertained for hours.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
