Revolut App

For anyone who travels frequently, one of the most frustrating and time consuming activities is prepping your currency in advance. Where do you get the best rates? What happens if you fail to bring enough cash - you face having to withdraw abroad, use your credit card or find a cash exchange service abroad, all of which are priced up accordingly.

Enter Revolut - The Global Money App, currently aimed at British travellers. Free to sign up for a digital wallet and it’s only £5 to obtain a Revolut prepaid Mastercard which acts more like debit card within the country you're traveling. They don’t skim off your exchange fees and you always get the best possible currency rate when withdrawing or paying for something abroad. There is a small fee (2%) to withdraw anything over £500/€650/$700 a month but it’s still a lot cheaper than withdrawing cash through your regular card, which is something we’ve experienced first hand, and the difference can be quite exceptional.

It’s super-easy to log on to the banking app that accompanies the app, so if you’re low on cash on your Revolut card you can easily top it up with a few clicks from your smartphone. The app also includes an excellent safety feature such as locking your card to the location your phone so if you lose it or someone else have it in their possession the card will stop working.

Revolut enables you to lock in today’s currency rate if you buy in advance and you’re also able to arrange international money transfers from the app to your contacts. They can then withdraw the money using their bank account or via Revolut. Finally, you're also able to split a bill with friends, so as soon as you’re ready to pay for a meal, bowling or whatever you’re into with your friends, you can save the awkwardness of asking of cash and just split the payment immediately via Revolut.

There’s a premium service for a fee of £6.99/month. This includes a black Mastercard (with 5 other designs available), plus added benefits such as free overseas medical insurance, free global express delivery if you lose your card, £400/€400 cash withdrawals, free bank transfers in 23 currencies and much more.

Welcome to Revolut 4.5.0

Greetings Revoluters, a small update for you this time:

- Various UX improvements
- Various bug fixes and enhancements throughout the app
- Fix for analytics not correctly displaying fees

Verdict:

Revolut is a great app/card combination that enables you to save on international charges when traveling abroad and makes it easy to send money locally/internationally. It makes it easier to split a bill between various people when you all enjoy a relaxed evening meal when you’re abroad.

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.
