TransferWise 4.0.3
Get notified when your transfer is completed and when it should arrive

If you’ve ever transferred money abroad either to a friend, family or for business you may have noticed the hefty transaction fees, and banks use anything but favourable exchange rates. By the time you conduct your transfer, not only do the banks add a basic fixed fee, but the poor exchange rate often can add another few % in the bank's favour.

Luckily there is TransferWise, an online money transfer service. TransferWise enables you to transfer money abroad for as much as 8 times cheaper than you would with your bank. The technology used is based on peer-to-peer lending. If you want to transfer Dollars to Pounds, they will find someone who wants to make the transfer in the opposite direction.

The system matches the currency flows and bases the fx rates on the current mid-market exchange rates, and then pays you from a local account, so the money never crosses borders, meaning you avoid the ridiculous fees your bank gives you and you save a tonne of money in the process on said fees and by getting the real mid exchange rate.  

To make a transfer is super-easy. Once your account is set up, and you have either linked your bank account directly to your transfer account or your debit card. Type in your recipient’s details and send the money. You will then receive a confirmation email when the money has been sent and one when it’s been paid to the recipient.

This is a perfect app for many different people if you’re a small business and you transfer a lot it is well worth it as you’ll save a tonne in the long-run and even for personal purposes you will instantly save. TransferWise will always be transparent about their fees, however, they vary but it’s usually a minimum fee of £2 for smaller transfers and then 0.5% for larger transfers, a fraction of what banks charge.

What's new in 4.0.4?

We’ve got four things we want to tell you about today’s app update, which is conveniently version four of our app!
- We’ve added notification preferences, so you can change what sort of emails and push notifications we send you. 
- If you’ve got a borderless account, you can now download PDF statements of your accounts. 
- We’ve improved the onboarding experience with a simply delightful new login screen. 
- Lastly, a whole load of bug fixes and improvements to the entire app!

Verdict:

TransferWise is a great app which we recommend, the only issue we’ve heard of is that sometimes it can take a long time for your transfer to get through. So keep an eye on this and make sure you transfer with plenty of time if you need the money to be there at a certain time.

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."
