OpenPanzer 2.9
Panzer General 2 remade for Android/ iOS

OpenPanzer is a hex and turn-based World War 2 strategy game, a remake of the classic Panzer General 2.

Although it's essentially a personal project, the free OpenPanzer has more features than many commercial games. You can play either an Axis or Allied general across lengthy campaigns and 32 scenarios, moving 4,000 historically-accurate units across 20 terrain types to achieve your strategic objectives.

Graphics are unspectacular, but that's no surprise for a remake of a 1997 game, and they're perfectly adequate for their use here.

As you work through the campaign, so your units gain experience, earn prestige points to help them upgrade, or you can buy new units from the Purchase screen.

The interface will be familiar to any turn-based strategy game fan. You start with various units on a hex-based map, move them around, discover enemy units when they're within range, then make best use of your men's abilities to achieve victory.

If you don't play this kind of game so often then the many options can seem a little intimidating at first, but a tutorial scenario will help you get started, and you'll master the basics quickly enough.

There are some very modern features for such an old-school game, too, including the ability to save games to the cloud for playing on other devices.

Verdict:

There are reports of stability issues with the Android build in particular, but if you're unaffected then this is a great free app which offers hours of engrossing gameplay

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.61

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.
