Microsoft Edge for Android 1.0
Microsoft brings its Windows 10 web browser to your phone

Microsoft's Edge has a morphed into an impressive web browser and is our browser of choice for Windows 10.

However, one of the biggest issues with using any web browser is that we want to share the content we find as we browse the web, with other devices. We want our passwords across our devices. How often to do you save a page to your bookmarks, or leave a tab open which you want to reference later? With Safari Cloud Tabs you can easily see the opened tabs on other devices, on your Mac. This makes it really easy to continue your browsing on your Mac, from a tab on your iPad.

With this in mind, Microsoft has released it needs an Android version of its Edge browser. The main reason for this is to enable smartphone users to share content with their Windows 10 PC. As an example, if you find and save an interesting website on your phone, the "Continue on PC" feature will push the same content to your Windows 10 PC.

As you would expect, Edge for Android also synchronise your desktop data, so you'll find your bookmarks, passwords and reading list. You can also set any search engine on Edge for Android, from Bing, Google through to Yahoo.

You also receive a private mode, a voice search feature and a QR code reader, enabling you to simply scan and read QR codes.

Verdict:

Very decent attempt to bring Edge to your smartphone, enabling you to seamlessly move between your phone and Edge on your Windows 10 PC.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.51

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 2.18.51

• When you receive a link to an Instagram or Facebook video, you can now play it right within WhatsApp. With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat.
• If you're a group admin, you can now remove admin rights from other participants. Select the admin in "Group Info" and tap "Dismiss As Admin."
• Group admins can now choose who can change a group's subject, icon and description by going to "Group Info" and tapping "Group Settings."
