Hideman VPN
Hide your IP address with Hideman VPN

There are a large number of web sites that place restrictions on who can access them by filtering IP addresses. If you have an IP address from a particular country, you will not be able to view many foreign web sites, particularly those related to streaming media, videos and other such content. On your computer it is fairly easy to set up a VPN to get around these restrictions, and Hideman VPN is a free app that brings this option to Android.

The app works by routing your web traffic through one of its servers located in twelve countries around the world. In this way it is possible to trick web sites into believing that you are located somewhere different and thereby access content that would not otherwise be available to you. There is no complicated configuration – all you need to do is click the flag of the country you would like to pretend you are in.

The app can also be used as a security tool thanks to the fact that it will hide your real IP address. This makes it much harder for your online activities to be traced and any traffic you generate is protected using 256-bit AERS encryption. It is a simple system but it works very well and you can be up and running in a matter of moments, regardless of whether you have worked with VPNs in the past or not.

The app itself is available free of charge, but this only includes 5 hours of free usage. If you think you are going to need to hide your IP address on a more permanent basis, you’re going to have to consider upgrading to one of the premium packages. Prices range from $3 for 1 week, through $15 for two months to $69 for a full year. You may well find that the free package is enough for you but there are options available.

Verdict:

A powerful and easy to use security tool, but one that can also be used to access otherwise inaccessible web sites – great stuff.

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
