CloudyTab 1.6
Open your iCloud tabs in your default web browser, even if it’s not Safari.

If you frequently switch between iPad, iPhone and Mac, one of iCloud’s best features will be its Tabs function, which lets you sync your open browser tabs in the cloud. Unsurprisingly it’s only designed to work with Safari, which is fine if you’re a fan of all things Apple, but not so great if you prefer an alternative browser.

CloudyTabs is an add-on that partially fixes the Mac-end of this problem. CloudyTabs adds extensions for whichever web browser you’ve set as your default on your Mac (including Firefox and Chrome), allowing you to access any open tabs currently synced via iCloud Tabs through either browser.

It’s simple to set up and install: download, unzip and drag CloudyTabs to your Applications folder, then attempt to open it. If Mavericks complains about it being from an unidentified developer, open System Preferences > Security & Privacy and click Open Anyway to unblock it.

You’ll now see the CloudyTabs icon appear in the menu bar – click this to see which tabs are open on which devices, then click one to open it in your default browser, or [Cmd]-click to open it in the background. You can also open all the tabs from a specific device via the Open All Tabs From menu, or type the first few letters of a tab to select it.

Want to know when your Mac last synced with iCloud Tabs? Simply hover the mouse over the CloudyTabs menu bar icon and wait.

And that’s basically it – CloudyTabs is a neat shortcut for accessing your synced tabs through a different default web browser to Safari, but it doesn’t work in the opposite direction, so if you want true two-way syncing you’ll need Safari, or install and use the Chrome for iOS app to sync between that and Chrome on your Mac.

What's new in v1.6?

- Hide devices that haven't had any sync activity in the last week

Verdict:

Does what it says on the tin, but you can't sync back from changes made in your default browser to iCloud.

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.
