Everything.me Launcher

Most Android launchers are fairly similar in style. There may be cosmetic differences but they tend to amount to very much the same thing – a different way of displaying the same static icons. But Everything.me is a little different. In many ways it could be thought of as an advanced serach tool, but for all intents and purposes it is a launcher.

So what is it that makes this app so different from all of the other launchers that are to be found in Google Play? This is an intelligent launcher that will change what is displayed depending on what you are doing and where you are. But there is another big difference. Everything.me will pull in information from the internet, not just from what you have stored on your phone.

So what does this mean ultimately? You are presented with a home screen that features a few icons and a search box. Let’s say that you want to cook some food. Start typing the word ‘food’ – there’s handy autocomplete support so you may not have to type the full word in many instances – and you’ll be presented with not only a list of the apps you have installed that might be useful, but also links to websites on the subject.

More than this, the background of your homescreen will change to something food-related, and this is the case no matter what you’re searching for. If you don’t fancy typing, there’s voice support so you can perform searches more easily. The results you are shown also adapt to your current location. This means that when you’re looking for a takeaway, you’ll automatically be shown those that are nearby.

You can still retain more traditional shortcuts to provide access to the apps you use most frequently – it’s much quicker to hit the Facebook shortcut than to start typing its name and selecting it from a list for instance. Another handy feature is smart folders. These can be used to create automatic folders for shortcuts. Create a Shopping Smart Folder and any apps you have installed that fall into this category will be added to the folder for you, and you’ll also find that links to related websites are included.

The app is currently in beta, but it already feels highly polished. Things can be slightly slow at times, but this is at least partly dependant on the speed of your connection and the types of searches you are performing. This is definitely a launcher that’s worth checking out.

Verdict:

Innovative, unique and a great time-saver. Everything.me makes your phone work the way you need it to.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

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 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
