Google Earth 7
Explore the world in which we life with Google Earth

Google Earth enables you to travel the world from the comfort of your desktop, exploring stunning satellite imagery in stunning 3D. The fluid interface makes it easy to jump from country to country and zoom right in to street level. Certain key cities around the world benefit from 3D tours which can be used to take a virtual tour of key landmarks and get a feeling of the lay of the land.

You can also search for local businesses and places of interest, and the pinpointing tools mean that it is possible to bookmark locations on the map and share them with others. This feature can also be used to create virtual sightseeing tours - perhaps to show off the route you have taken on your travels.

While the program is immense fun, it can also be put to more serious uses. A range of different maps can be displayed, including historical maps which can show how country boundaries have changed over the years. Google Earth can also be used as route planner and to find out valuable information about towns, cities and country you plan to visit. Additional components are available that can be used to take virtual tour of the sky, moon and sun and the way in which users are invited to generate their own content to add to maps means that there is always something new to find.

Google Earth 7.1.1 is a minor upgrade. Changes include:

- Ability to create rich, annotated images from print and save
- Redesigned print flow
- Viewshed/Line of Sight analysis tool from a placemark
- New features in Google Earth and Google Earth Pro
- Support for LEAP Motion device
- Enhanced starfield
- Google Feedback tool integration
- Redesigned balloons

Verdict:

An educational tool which is also a great deal of fun, Google Earth bring geography to life.

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
