MEmu
Run Android 4.2.2 in a window on your Windows desktop

MEmu is a free Chinese application which runs Android in a window on your Windows desktop.

The main download is horribly slow, so we've linked to the main MEmu page, instead. This has more options, including a Google Drive download which is faster.

Once the download and setup is out of the way, life gets much easier. A window opens representing an Android tablet, a few basic apps - including ES File Explorer - and Google Play Store to help you find and add more.

A right-hand toolbar simulates shaking your virtual tablet, rotating it, adjusting volume, taking a screenshot, remapping keys or running an apk directly, while you can simulate multi-touch and tilting with the keyboard or a joystick.

The Settings dialog includes a "GPS Simulation" tab to define your location. It's set to China by default, so if you're elsewhere you should probably update it.

There are other settings to define the RAM allocated to the process, the number of CPUs, and the screen resolution (although you can run Android full-screen whenever you like).

MEmu also has shared folders for music, videos, pictures and download, making it easy to share content between Android and the host.

Version 6.0.5

Fix an incompatible graphic issue with 3rd-party tool like OBS
Fix an issue of occasional VM startup failure
Fix an issue of occasional touch failure on tablet device
Fix an issue of occasional export/import VM error
Fix an issue of tab label display error
Fix some other tiny bugs

Verdict:

Installation and setup is awkward if you don't speak Chinese, but once you've got it running MEmu seems to be a reliable Android emulator, running all the apps we tried without difficulty.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.102

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.

What's New in Version 2.18.102 

• Introducing stickers! You can now download and send expressive stickers in chats. Tap the new "sticker" icon while in a chat to get started. You can also tap the "+" icon to download more sticker packs. If you'd like to create your own stickers for WhatsApp, visit whatsapp.com/stickers to get started.
• You can now easily search for GIFs right from within a chat. Just tap the "sticker" icon in a chat and then tap the "GIF" icon at the bottom.
• Consecutive Voice Messages will now play in sequence, so you don't have to press play on each message.
