Launcher 7
Launcher 7 brings the look of Windows Phone 7 to Android

In the world of computing, it is quite common for applications to borrow ideas from other software, and this is certainly true when it comes to operating systems. Just as there are three main operating systems to choose from for desktop computers - Windows, OS X and Linux - so for mobile devices, with users having the choice of iOS, Windows Phone and Android.

Each mobile operating system has its strengths and weaknesses, and whichever one you decided to go for inevitably means having to make some compromises. If you have opted for an Android device but are craving the look of Windows Phone 7, Launcher 7 may just be the tool you have been looking for, as it will enable you to bring the look of Microsoft's mobile operating system to your Android.

Launcher 7 is highly customizable and its interface is broken down into a series of tiles that can be used as shortcuts to app, phone features or Android widgets. The color of tiles, as well as the background image can be adjusted, and achieving the perfect screen layout takes nothing more than drag and drop.

Extra shortcuts can be accessed in the drawer that appears to the right of the main screen, and this can also be used to delete those apps you no longer need. On most devices, the performance of Launcher 7 is impressive, but animation effects can be changed if things perform slowly.

Verdict:

Launcher 7 is a faithful reproduction of the Windows Phone 7 interface and it gives Android a completely new look and feel.

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
