SafeIP 2.0.0.2602
Change your IP address and browse anonymously with a couple of clicks

SafeIP provides several easy ways to help you browse more anonymously online.

Normally, for instance, the websites you visit will at the very least have access to your IP address, so they'll know where in the world you are. SafeIP, though, can allocate you another IP address in the US, UK, Poland or Germany. All you have to do is double-click on your country of choice, and your address will be allocated and displayed immediately.

Apart from enhancing your privacy, this may also allow you access to some sites you wouldn't normally be able to reach. If you've ever tried to view content and got a "not available in your country" message, for instance, that's probably down to your IP address, and getting another may help.

Click the "Settings" button and you'll find SafeIP has many more options. It can also remove your browser's user agent header, for instance. And there are options to block cookies, or website referrers.

The program can even try to block ads and prevent you from accessing malicious websites, although this doesn't exactly appear to be as sophisticated as you might hope. When we checked the relevant boxes, SafeIP simply displayed an error message complaining that "there was a problem adding updates to your HOSTS file".

There's clearly some work to do on these more advanced functions, then, but don't let that necessarily put you off. SafeIP's core function of changing your IP address appears to work very well, and that's more than enough to justify its installation.

Verdict:

SafeIP provides a quick and easy way to change your IP address. Its other functions may not be so reliable, though - use them with care (if you do so at all)

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.
