Emsisoft Mobile Security 1.0.0.6
A lightweight but capable Android security package

Emsisoft Mobile Security is a simple but effective security solution for Android devices.

The app is lightweight and easy to use, but still manages to cram in plenty of essential features and functionality.

A fast malware scanner checks your apps and stored files for threats; real-time protection detects and blocks malicious apps before they can be installed; web protection prevents you accessing dangerous websites.

A Privacy Audit scans your installed apps, highlighting any which require special permissions (they send or receive data over the internet, can access your personal details, or can cost you money by making calls or sending text messages).

And an Anti-Theft module is able to remotely lock or wipe your device if it's stolen or lost, as well as remotely set the screen unlock password and assorted password rules.

Verdict:

The feature set is much like many similar security tools, but Emsisoft's great reputation on other platforms means Mobile Security deserves your attention.

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.
