MEmu
Run Android 4.2.2 in a window on your Windows desktop

MEmu is a free Chinese application which runs Android in a window on your Windows desktop.

The main download is horribly slow, so we've linked to the main MEmu page, instead. This has more options, including a Google Drive download which is faster.

Once the download and setup is out of the way, life gets much easier. A window opens representing an Android tablet, a few basic apps - including ES File Explorer - and Google Play Store to help you find and add more.

A right-hand toolbar simulates shaking your virtual tablet, rotating it, adjusting volume, taking a screenshot, remapping keys or running an apk directly, while you can simulate multi-touch and tilting with the keyboard or a joystick.

The Settings dialog includes a "GPS Simulation" tab to define your location. It's set to China by default, so if you're elsewhere you should probably update it.

There are other settings to define the RAM allocated to the process, the number of CPUs, and the screen resolution (although you can run Android full-screen whenever you like).

MEmu also has shared folders for music, videos, pictures and download, making it easy to share content between Android and the host.

Version 3.5.0.0

New black theme and UI
Add support to change frame rate
Add support to fix the size of main window
Add switch to enable/disable launcher widget

Verdict:

Installation and setup is awkward if you don't speak Chinese, but once you've got it running MEmu seems to be a reliable Android emulator, running all the apps we tried without difficulty.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.80

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 2.17.80

• Now you can delete messages you've sent by mistake. Just tap and hold a message you sent in the last 7 minutes, tap delete, and select "Delete for everyone." The message will be deleted for you and everyone in the chat. Requires the latest version of WhatsApp.
• Live location: now you can share your location in real-time with family and friends. Open any chat, tap the + icon > location, and tap "Share Live Location" to get started. 
• Fixed an issue that was preventing some message notifications from appearing on iOS 11.
