SOTI Pocket Controller for Android
Access Android devices from your PC

SOTI Pocket Controller for Android is a powerful free suite which enables you to access and control Android devices from a PC.

The system includes both PC and Android components, so you'll need to download and install each one. This worked easily enough for us, and although the Android client asked us to register with a phone number, we were able to click a "skip" button to avoid this.

Once everything is installed and your systems are connected (via wifi, USB or Bluetooth), the PC should detect your Android device automatically, but if you have problems there's an option to manually connect via a specified IP address.

Pocket Controller displays your device screen on launch, and you can use this immediately as a controller, clicking with the mouse to simulate a tap, or typing at your keyboard to enter data.

A freehand drawing tool helps you highlight items of interest, and there are tools to capture, save or print static screenshots, or record a video of what's happening on your Android screen.

The package also includes an Explorer-type module for manually exploring and managing the file systems of your PC and Android device.

A Sync Manager allows you to set up custom rules to automatically synchronise your chosen files or folders between the two systems.

Task Manager-type tools list the running processes and applications on your device, their properties, and enable you to pause or close them.

There's also a simple system information tool, and experts will appreciate the Shell which provides command line access to their device.

Verdict:

File syncing and screen recording are particular highlights, but SOTI Pocket Controller for Android crams plenty of other useful features into its easy-to-use remote access system.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.71

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 2.18.71

- Group admins can now choose to allow only admins to send messages to a group. Open "Group Info" > tap "Group Settings". Non-admins will still be able to read messages and respond privately by tapping "Message Admin".
- You can now easily notify people when you change your phone number. Tap "Settings" > "Account" > "Change Number". You can select which contacts or chats you would like to notify.
