Nox APP Player
Play Android games on your Windows desktop

Nox APP Player is an emulator which allows you to run Android apps in a window on your PC desktop.

Installation was slow on our test PC, but straightforward enough. The only action we had to take was to agree to the installation of a USB driver, and after doing that, the program was ready to go.

On launch Nox APP Player fired up a virtual Android 4.4.2 tablet in a near-full-screen window. This only has one or two apps by default, but fortunately Play Store is included, so you can search for and install whatever you like in the usual way.

The program has reasonable gaming support, and allows you to play using a joystick, mouse, or the keyboard (map your preferred keys to make life easier). But other apps work just as well, and everything we tried ran without problems.

A toolbar to the right of the window provides options to simulate shaking your device, to set a virtual location, take a screenshot, install an APK from the host, and more.

Nox APP Player also has some useful settings, including options to change your screen resolution, and optimise performance by assigning more (or less) RAM/ CPU cores.

Version 5.0.0.0 (Changelog):

1.Re-designed the user interface of NoxPlayer to comply with flat design principles and give the users a whole new experience

2. Added Theme center. We are the only Android emulator that supports this feature. You could change between different themes to give your Nox a new touch.

3. Dramatically improved the engine to boost NoxPlayer’s performance

4. Added Rotate button to change Nox screen display from vertical to horizontal or back with just one click

5. Changed the interface of Keyboard control settings and File share between PC and NoxPlayer

Verdict:

There's nothing too advanced or surprising here, but Nox APP Player's Android 4.4.2 KitKat base - and its ease of use - make for an appealing program.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.51

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 2.17.51

• When typing text in a chat, you can tap and hold to select the text and easily bold, strikethroughor italacize it.
