Opera Mini 13
Opera Mini returns with a new look and plenty of new features.

Although we look for and download various apps for our Blackberry or iPhone, most of the time we spend checking our email or looking at our favourite websites for the footy, tech and company news. Problem is that the browsing experience on a mobile device isn’t quite at the same level as that on a desktop web browser. It’s difficult to manage multiple windows, share passwords from your desktop and mobile browser and flick between your favourite sites.

You may not have realised this, but Opera are big players in the mobile market and ship a version of their browser for your phone. They’ve just announced a brand new version which they regard as the next version of mobile browsing.

The new Opera Mini browser is like a cut-down version of their Opera desktop web browser. Launch it on your mobile and you’ll see your speed dial options where you’re presented with a number of small icons which you can configure as your favourite sites. Opera Mini is designed for your mobile, so it’s easy to control using the touch screen. The tabs are designed so you can quickly flick between them using your finger.

Opera Mini will also enable you to store personal information, including your web passwords, meaning you do not need to keep entering the same password every time you visit a site. Whether this will work with MyOpera, enabling you to synchronise data between your desktop and mobile browser, is yet to be finalised.

Opera Mini 13 features the following changes:

- Integration with password managers. Use the share button to fetch logins and passwords from your favorite password manager apps.
- Slide Over and Split Screen support for iPad (only for iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad Air 2 and iPad Mini 2 or later).
- Access to your open Opera tabs on other devices through our sync service.
- Improvements in startup time.

Verdict:

Opera Mini gets a welcome facelift with this new release, and its built-in compression technologies make it worth using when you're on a slow or bandwidth-limited connection.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.4

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.
