Need for Speed Undercover for iPhone
Burn some rubber in Need for Speed Undercover for iPhone

Need for Speed is a well-known franchise, and EA have taken a big risk in bringing the fast paced racing game to the iPhone small screen. While it could have all gone horribly wrong, the game has been executed with aplomb and the high octane game has made a successful transition to the iPhone.

The available tracks are linear, and while this is a major difference from the free roaming worlds available in console version of the game, it does not detract from its playability. Controls for the game are about as good as they come. Rather than littering the screen with icons that need to be touched, auto-acceleration means that you don’t need to worry about propelling your car forwards and accelerometer friendly steering wheel controls take care of cornering.

A variety of gestures are used to apply brakes and use nitros meaning that you are left free to concentrate on the road ahead. The graphics are genuinely impressive, particularly when you consider the hardware the game is running on. Speed is certainly present, and the environment just flies by at breakneck speed.

With eight different race mode, three different environments and a range of vehicle customisation options, there’s plenty to keep you coming back for more.


A game that is as exhilarating as its console-based counterparts and one that demonstrates the iPhone’s legitimacy as a gaming platform.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.12

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 2.12.12 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
