Lyft 5.35.3
Set your pickup location, pick your type of car and wait for your driver!

Uber has taken so many cities by storm and is facing a huge fight in every city it enters as it grows markedly. However, this is not without a fight and cab drivers are unhappy, as are regulators. So, do you have any other options when using your phone to call a car to pick you up with the press of a button?

One such alternative is Lyft, which is the biggest competitor to Uber right now and offers a very similar service, enabling you to hire a private taxi for your journey from an app. Lyft first introduced tipping and has long been known to pay drivers more and also enables you to round up your ride cost and donate to charity.

You can sign up for Lyft using your Facebook account and you can easily set up payments from PayPal. Additionally, on sign up, you will receive credit towards your first 10 rides. When you open up the app you’re instantly placed at your location where Lyft shows you where the nearest cars are situated.

You can instantly set your pickup location and pick what kind of ride you want. Standard Lyft, Plus for larger vehicles, Premier for high-end vehicles, Lux for a black car experience of Lux SUV for a large luxury car experience.

Once you’ve set your pick up you add your destination and Lyft will instantly put what the best price ride for you is (usually Standard Lyft), you can then use the drop-down menu to see what the prices are for the other selections mentioned above. Lyft claims that the drivers on their system are thoroughly background checked and only the highest rated drivers are allowed on the road.

Verdict:

Lyft is a great app and good alternative to Uber, especially if you rate how they treat their drivers. It also provides competition for Uber which means better service from both.

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.
