Google Latitude
Track your friends and share your location using Google Latitude

Web sites and mobile apps such as FourSquare and Facebook's Places feature helped to bring about the idea of value in sharing your current location with others. This is something that Google Latitude makes even easier by enabling you to broadcast your location from your phone.

The app has a variety of uses, but it provides a particularly interesting way of meeting up with friends. Wherever you may be, you can call up a map that displays the current location of people you know that are running the app - this can also be useful if you want people to know where you are, but may not be able to hold onto your phone.

To avoid potential privacy concerns, it is possible to place a limit on the accuracy of location details -you may want to limit your location to nothing more specific than the city you are currently in, for example, or there may be times when you do not want to broadcast your location at all.

Google Latitude can also be used to create a personal travel journal. When used in conjunction with Google Location History, you can easily keep track of the places you have visited in the course of a day so you can return places you enjoyed. Available free of charge, it is likely that you can find numerous uses for Google's location tracking tool.

Verdict:

Google Latitude is a great deal, but the drain on battery life is something to take into consideration.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
