DreamChess
A simple but fun chess game

DreamChess is a simple open-source chess game.

Playing is easy, as there's really nothing to think about beyond the game: click Start, choose a difficulty level and you're off.

The visuals are basic. The website talks about "3D OpenGL graphics" and "various chess board sets", but the 3D-ness is kept to a minimum and there are only four sets in the download (although we do quite like the hand-drawn-type "Sketch" theme).

Chess novices should find the standard "dreamer" engine is playable enough, but experts can replace it with any other XBoard-compatible engine.

There are a few other extras - sounds, music, a few move options (retract, move previous etc) - but essentially that's it. If you're looking for more to do than sit down and play, DreamChess will leave you disappointed.

Verdict:

DreamChess is seriously short on features, but also easy-to-use and hassle-free. Maybe worth a try for novice to intermediate players who only need the chess basics.

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.
